Netgear ProSafe 12 Port Layer 2 Managed Gigabit Network Switch L2

The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.

Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
A switch is a device with which it is possible to connect computers into a (local area) network, provided your computers all have an appropriate networking device installed. Switches can be daisy chained to form larger networks and come in managed and unmanaged variaties. The unmanaged versions generally cannot filter data and will forward any data that is fed into them, so they are better suited for small networks. Switches are easy to set up (just plug in the network cables) and allow you to share printers, storage space and other network resources with your entire home or office network.

The GSM7212 offers Gigabit performance and a full set of Layer 2 networking management features at an affordable cost. This managed switch delivers maximum throughput to high performance users or provides a backbone to a growing business network.

Gigabit Connectivity & Management
With increasing bandwidth requirements from applications such as voice, video, database management, and other services that slow throughput and response time, you can maximize productivity with Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber connectivity for your demanding networking environment. The GSM7212 offers a combination of Fiber or Copper connectivity on all 12 ports to act as a real backbone to your network, plus full Layer 2 Management functionality to provide the control you need to manage your network. Layer 2 features include extensive VLAN support, traffic prioritisation, link aggregation, port mirroring, Rapid Spanning Tree, RADIUS, DHCP, broadcast storm protection and more.

Easy to Use
With the GSM7212, take Gigabit to the desktop in minutes. Use the GSM7212 as a managed switch out of the box – just plug and play. All ports are auto-negotiating and support Auto Uplink™ technology. Choose from two easy-to-use management interface options – web interface or a command line interface available through console or Telnet. This Layer 2 managed switch also offers comprehensive remote administration capabilities that reduce the need for on-site presence. The GSM7212 is also easy to troubleshoot – built in testing capability locates cable related network problems.

Value for Money
The GSM7212 managed network switch offers Layer 2 management and full Gigabit power at a compelling price. Use at the edge to improve workgroup or departmental connections, or at the core to upgrade a Gigabit Ethernet backbone. Like all NETGEAR products, everything you need is in the box – including rack mount kit, power cable, serial cable and more.

Management features
Switch type *
What switch device has, managed or unmanaged.
Switch layer
A network switch is a computer networking device that links networking segments. A switch has different layers, such as layer 2 (a network bridge, operating at the data link layer, interconnecting a small number of devices) and layer 4 (can act as a firewall, amongst other things).
MIB support
RFC 1213 MIB II, RFC 1493 Bridge MIB, RFC 1643 Ethernet Interface MIB
Ports & interfaces
Basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports quantity *
