NETGEAR has packed a lot of value into this compact switch. Start with high port density in a one-unit box, add two-gigabit uplinks to give an added edge to any growing business, then add key switch management capabilities and you have a powerful switch that costs a lot less than you'd expect.Forty-eight 10/100 Mbps ports and two copper Gigabit Ethernet ports connect to servers or a Gigabit-speed backbone for a non-stop, always available 10/100/1000-enabled network that can quickly deliver large multimedia, image, and video files. All 50 shielded RJ-45 ports automatically negotiate to the highest speed and support Auto Uplink technology to make the right link. The intuitive, Web-browser interface offers simple switch management, making it a snap to monitor switch performance, configure ports, even set up trunks, VLANs, and prioritization. Shipped ready to go straight out of the box, it delivers switching that's easy to set up and use.
