The NETGEAR Easy-Mount Switch Family Overview

The NETGEAR Easy-Mount Switch allows you to put more PoE/PoE+ ports Virtually Anywhere with its unique mounting system.

The Easy-Mount Switch family comes with a full set of software features such as traffic prioritization, VLANs, QoS and PoE power allocation.

Moreover the Easy-Mount switches comes with Energy Efficient Ethernet for maximum power savings.

Easy-Mount and Low Noise Operation

Deploy your PoE/PoE+ switch closest to your PoE/PoE+ devices and put your PoE/PoE+ ports exactly where you need them. 

Install your ports up in the ceiling, strapped to a pole, mounted under a desk or tabletop. If you wish you also can rack mount the GS408EPP switch on a 19-inch standard rack. You can even rack mount 2 GS408EPP switches back to back in a single 1U.

Thanks to the active fans the GS408EPP is a silent switch, well below offices ambient background noise.

PoE/PoE+ Support

Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) option available for powering IP Security Cameras, VOIP phones, wireless access points, and other PD-powered devices.

With eight (8) PoE/PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet ports (802.3af, 802.3at) providing up to 30W per port, and a power budget of 124W, provide power and connectivity across one wire to power-hungry PoE devices like 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points, Pan/Tilt/Zoom/HD Security Cameras, security door locks, and other IoT devices.

Easy-Mount "Virtually Anywhere" Mounting System

The innovative mounting system gives you the flexibility to place the Easy-Mount Switch in locations where other switches will not go. Whether it's directly on a wall, strapped to a pole, under the meeting table in a conference room or in a server closet, vertical or horizontal, flat or perpendicular, the  unique mounting system allow you to control exactly how and where your ports and cables are deployed.

Networking Management Features

The Easy-Mount Switches can go beyond plug-and-play connectivity with additional Switch networking features, allowing businesses to segment the network with VLANs or prioritize voice and video traffic with QoS. IGMP Snooping allows for optimized multimedia delivery and port trunking adds redundancy to uplinks and servers. Setup and configuration is simple using the web browser-based configuration GUI.

HARDWARE FEATURES

PoE/PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet Ports

With eight (8) PoE/PoE+ Gigabit Ethernet ports (802.3at) providing up to 30W per port, and a power budget of 124W, provide power and connectivity across one wire to power-hungry PoE devices like 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Points, Pan/Tilt/Zoom/HD Security Cameras, security door locks, and other IoT devices.

Easy-Mount "Virtually Anywhere" Mounting System

The industry-first Easy-Mount mounting system allows you to put your PoE+ ports exactly where you want them: on a wall, under a tabletop/desktop, on a pole, or even up in the ceiling on the ventilation ducts, horizontal or vertical.

Two-in-one 1U Rackmount Capable

Because all connections are on the front (both power and ethernet connections), and because of it's small size, you can mount two GS408EPP Easy-Mount switches within a single 1U slot by mounting one facing out the front, and the other facing out the back of your rack.

SOFTWARE FEATURES

Comprehensive QoS Features

Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video. Ingress and egress rate limiting allows for bandwidth shaping for mitigating network resources constraints or for optimizing guest access bandwidth on the network.

  • Port-based or 802.1p-based prioritization
  • Layer 3-based (DSCP) prioritization
  • Port-based ingress and egress rate limiting

IGMP Snooping

For improved network efficiency on delivering multicast traffic. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.

Loop Detection / Auto DoS Prevention

Detect accidental network loops and protect against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.

Port-based & 802.1Q-based VLANs

Segment network into smaller groups for more secure and efficient use of network resources.

PoE Per Port Controls

Advanced per port PoE controls for remote power management of PoE connected devices (eg. Wireless AP, IP security cameras, LED lighting, door locks, IoT devices…) including:

  • Enable/disable PoE power per port
  • PoE prioritization
  • PoE power class configuration (802.3af, 802.3at)
  • User-defined PoE power limit per port (override detected Class)
  • Power cycle PoE per port

Port Trunking / Link Aggregation (LAG)

Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic.

Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az)

For maximum power savings and reduced energy costs.

Port Mirroring

For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.

Cable Test

Easily identify bad Ethernet cables.
