Charlene OHanlon writes about new switches from Netgear.

“Networking switch vendor Netgear claims it has bridged the gap between the robustness of an enterprise-grade switch and the simplicity and low-cost of SMB IP solutions with a new switch designed to offer the best of both worlds. Here are details. The company’s ProSafe 8-port Gigabit PoE Smart Switch (GS110TP) handles all matter of IP traffic – be it VoIP, IP surveillance, or video conferencing, and can manage IP devices such as wireless access points, IP phones and IP cameras. It offers the Gigabit speeds and Power over Ethernet capability of its enterprise counterparts, but with a lower port density and a price point of $390.”
