Innovative Mounting Bracket

Simple to use mounting bracket enables vertical or horizontal orientation of ports.

To install, just mount the bracket onto a wall, desk, table leg/pole, or virtually anywhere, and "Click" the switch into the bracket.

Your ports and cables where you want them

Today's networks have increasing numbers of devices attached to them, both wired and wireless. As wired devices proliferate, it can be difficult to easily and neatly place networked ports where you want them.

NETGEAR ProSAFE® Web Managed Click Switches address this issue with an innovative and thoughtful hardware design, including the "Virtually Anywhere" flexible 1-2-3-4 Click mounting system. The new ProSAFE Web Managed Click Switches are Gigabit Ethernet switches with an industry-first, bracket mounting system for easy installation. Available in either 8- or 16-Gigabit port configurations, their slim design and internal power supplies enables you to organize wires, secure cables, eliminate bulky power adapters, and improve the overall appearance of wiring closets, training facilities, lab benches, conference rooms, and entertainment centers that require multiple connected devices.

"Virtually Anywhere" Innovative 1-2-3-4 Mounting System

The innovative 1-2-3-4 mounting system gives you the flexibility to place the Web Managed Click 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 Web Managed Click Switch's unique mounting system allow you to control exactly how and where your ports and cables are deployed.

NETGEAR ProSAFE Click Switch Family Overview

The Web Managed Click Switches GSS108E (8-port) and GSS116E (16-port) feature an innovative and flexible mounting bracket, making it easy to mount the Web Managed Click Switches vertically and horizontally, on a wall, under a desk, or strapped to a pole, flat or perpendicular - allowing you to put your ports where and how you need them!  Watch the video to the left for more information.
