Overall Satisfaction with NETGEAR Ethernet Switches

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
  • Speed
  • Reliability
  • Easy troubleshooting
  • Easy set up
  • Once set up can be left
  • Can be on the more expensive side for the initial outlay
We made use of the NETGEAR switches, as we did not need ongoing support for the service as required by Cisco and Unifi at the time. Other benefits were the cost against the Cisco switches and the reliability against unifi
