NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Switches fill the gap between unmanaged and fully managed switches. The family of ProSafe Smart Switches is designed for growing businesses that want control over their network without the cost and complexity of a full Layer 2/Layer 3 management implementation. This PoE capable Smart Switch, FS726TP, provides power and data over the same Cat-5 cable to enable affordable PoE solutions for mid-sized businesses. Using builtin standards based IEEE 802.3af PoE, the FS726TP offers web-based management including prioritization and SNMP making it ideal for deploying access points, VoIP phones and IP-based surveillance cameras. Two built-in Gigabit ports provides fast connections to servers or a Gigabit-speed backbone. With the utility of 24 10/100 Mbps ports, two copper 10/100/1000 ports and two hot-swappable Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) GBIC slots for optional fiber connectivity, growing business networks, classrooms and workgroups can benefit from superior performance and keep up with expanding network needs. This high performing switch features a non-blocking wire-speed architecture with an 8.8Gbps switching capacity for maximum data throughput. All 26 RJ-45 ports automatically negotiate to the highest speed and support Auto Uplink technology to make the right link.
