We currently make use of two NETGEAR switches for our internal servers. The switches are connected to our proxy server. Through the use of VLANs, we can route traffic through the switches to our services on the servers or to the DMZ. We also have a switch that is on a separate VLAN that allows us to connect the machines in the office physically to our network. Giving us a larger number or hardwired connected devices to our network.
  • Traffic Management
  • VLANs
  • Reliable
  • Gigabit ports
  • Management UI
  • Power controls
  • Port checks
Make use of ethernet switches if you have a large number of machines that you want to connect to the network physically. I would recommend NETGEAR switches for the reliability and easy set up.

Currently we have a legacy datacenter deployed. We needed a low cost solution to have the ability to access HP ilo ports remotely. We simply bought the NETGEAR Rackmount switches deployed them to each of our server racks and was able to provide a remote access service to our infrastructure engineers.
  • Low Cost
  • Low Latency
  • 1u Rackmount Design
  • Fan Noise
  • mixed mode gbic and ethernet ports
  • option for dual power supply on low end models
NETGEAR switches should be used when you want to deploy quality network gear at a low cost. The application is best suited for Offices or Branch Offices but could also be used in the Datacenter for the right purpose.

I have used Netgear switches in a smaller environment. The majority of anyone I support that utilize Netgear switches are users in a SOHO environment who are looking to get the job done without breaking the bank.
  • Gigabit speed is consistent and reliable
  • Cost is low
  • Easy to install
  • Better advertisement about advanced enterprise features. My experience is with smaller switches and not with the fully managed switches.
  • Additional management tools to monitor multiple switches in the environment. Similar to Cisco Network Assistant.
Most companies have warranty contracts or prefer a specific type of equipment to match their current environment. Smaller environments that don't have a policy for a specific device, or someone looking for a good switch with a low cost would be where I have currently utilized these switches. I don't see why these switches couldn't be used in a larger environment, although I have not tested them in a corporate environment. In home or small office environments, these have worked very well.
