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.

ProSafe Smart Wireless Switch
Netgear ProSafe Smart Wireless Switch Managed L3 Blue Power over Ethernet (PoE):
The official marketing text of Netgear ProSafe Smart Wireless Switch Managed L3 Blue Power over Ethernet (PoE) as supplied by the manufacturer

NETGEAR’s WFS709TP ProSafe™ Smart Wireless Switch is a full featured wireless controller that centrally manages 16 access points, delivering integrated wireless mobility, security and converged services for both wired and wireless users.

Supporting up to 256 users per ProSafe™ Smart Wireless Switch, the WFS709TP has built in PoE support on all eight 10/100 interfaces. With a Gigabit Ethernet port typically used to connect the Wireless Switch to the network backbone, the WFS709TP supports advanced security features such as 802.1x, EAP-PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, 802.11i, MAC address, SSID and location-based authentication.

With identity-based security features such as support for RADIUS, LDAP and AAA server support, the NETGEAR ProSafe™ Smart Wireless Switch truly unifies wired and wireless access without compromising on security.

Deployed as an overlay on the existing network infrastructure, WFS709TP centrally manages, deploys, monitors and controls your wireless infrastructure. Supporting multiple deployment architectures including standalone switch deployments to hierarchical setups in master/local configurations, the NETGEAR ProSafe™ Smart Wireless Switch can be configured in “master” mode where all the configuration and security parameters are managed for the entire wireless network. In addition, WFS709TP can be configured in “local” mode, acting as policy enforcement points for the “master” controller as part of a hierarchical setup.

The overall Smart Wireless Switch Solution supports up to 32 access points with the Smart Wireless Switches configured in redundant master/local mode and up to 48 access points with the Smart Wireless Switches configured in non-redundant master/local configuration. A standalone Smart Wireless Switch supports up to 16 access points.

IntelliFi RF Management
Targeted towards the growing business NETGEAR ProSafe™ Smart Wireless Switch provides continuous wireless coverage with features such as IntelliFi radio management. IntelliFi radio management provides automatic self-configuration of all radio parameters including transmit power level, channel, load balancing and interference avoidance. For low-latency applications such as VoIP, the NETGEAR ProSafe™ Wireless Switch delivers VoIP over wireless by providing support for call admission control, voice-aware fast-roaming and strict over-the-air QoS to deliver mobile voice capabilities.

Access Points
Wireless users on the network can now experience seamless roaming as moving between multiple access points is made simple with the ProSafe™ Smart Wireless Switch centralised architecture. All user states, including security and mobility information, are maintained in the centralized Smart Wireless Switch. Access points (AP’s) act as logical extensions to the WFS709TP, accepting wireless traffic and sending it to the Wireless Switch over IP tunnels. Access points supported include the NETGEAR ProSafe 802.11a/g Dual Band Light Wireless Access Point (WAGL102) and NETGEAR ProSafe 802.11g Light Wireless Access Point (WGL102). The WFS709TP can also manage existing NETGEAR WG102 and WAG102 Wireless Access Point deployment by a one-time image download available on that allows the existing wireless access point to be managed by the Wireless Controller.

RF Planning Tool
With integrated RF planning tools, administrators can input floor plan images, number of floors, building dimensions, desired coverage and an overlap factor for fault tolerance. The planning tools compute the predicted RF characteristics of the building, plot the optimal location of the access points and display predicted coverage.

Guest access, provided by a built-in captive portal, allows guest users connecting over the wireless network restricted guest level access to the network, prohibiting them any access to the sensitive data on the corporate network.

For mission-critical applications requiring network resiliency, the WFS709TP supports fault-tolerant hardware with industry standard N+1 wireless controller redundancy and access point interleaving for access point redundancy. These features make it possible to provide a wireless network with no single point of failure, guaranteeing the highest possible availability.

Till Netgear medföljer ett planeringsverktyg som vi inte riktigt förstår oss på. Vi försökte importera både dxf-filer (Autocad-ritningar) och jpg-bilder, men fick obegripliga felmeddelanden till svar. Verktyget ser inte ut som ett ritverktyg, utan snarare som något att definiera byggnader, våningsplan och liknande med. Efter en stunds experimenterande gav vi upp...
