NETGEAR Unveils the GS108MX, an Affordable Yet Powerful Solution for Today’s Connected Business Needs.

What is the GS108MX Switch?

As the needs of businesses continue to grow with increasing number of connected devices, they require the right technology to support them without breaking the bank. With this in mind, NETGEAR is launching its latest unmanaged switch, the GS108MX, featuring one 10G/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet port for non-blocking uplink. The switch is an energy-efficient solution, which offers ongoing cost savings on top of its affordable price point.

10Gb / Multi-Gig Uplink Switch Use Cases:

Today’s workforce is becoming increasingly complex with new technologies and devices constantly added to network infrastructures and employees bringing multiple personal devices, such as smartphones and tablets, into the office. For many, this means they have outgrown the basic Ethernet connections on their router. The GS108MX meets these new demands by seamlessly connecting to routers(such as the NETGEAR PR60X), or core switches. It delivers robust networking capabilities without sacrificing quality. With minimal management requirement, it is easy to set up and use, making it ideal for companies without dedicated IT support.

In addition to the 10G/Multi-Gigabit Ethernet port, the switch comes with eight 1G ports that provide gigabit speed to overcome the Ethernet overload often created by too many connected devices, ensuring the connection is neither slowed down nor interrupted.
