Product Info

Netgear's New Generation of ProSAFE® Gigabit Smart Switches


This NETGEAR® new generation ProSAFE® Gigabit Smart Switch offers new, powerful L2 and L2+ features with enhanced performance and usability. The GS724Tv4 is purposely designed for the future where increased traffic and application-oriented tasks demands more intelligence at the edge, higher realiability and improved network efficiency on top of operational cost savings and ease of management.

The GS724Tv4 comes with 2 dedicated Gigabit SFP ports for fiber connectivity. This new generation 24-port Gigabit Smart Switch from NETGEAR is the optimized solution providing the best value at an affordable SMB price point.


Hardware Features

Dedicated SFP Fiber Uplinks
Dedicated SFP ports provides fiber uplinks without sacrificing any downlink Gigabit port. 4 SFP ports provide not only redundant uplinks, but can also build dual redundancy by a trunked uplink with link aggregation and failover, the dual-redundancy, a powerful design for the network virtualization.

Fanless Design
Quiet operation makes these switches ideal solution for business environments which favor no noise from networking gears such as libraries, class rooms, offices and etc.

Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE802.3az)
Maximum power reduction for onging operational cost savings

Software Features

Dynamic VLAN Assignment
IP phones and PCs can authenticate on the same port but under different VLAN assignment policies. Users are free to move around and enjoy the same level of network access regardless of their physical location in the network.

Static Routing
A simple way to provide segmentation of the network with internal routing through the switch – reserving the router for external traffic routing only, making the entire network more efficient.

Comprehensive IPv6 Support for Management, ACL and QoS
Build current network with future in mind. Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network without switch replacement.

IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping
Facilitate fast receiver joins and leaves for multicast streams. Save cost and improve network efficiency by ensuring multicast traffic only reaches designated receivers without the need of an extra multicast router.


Robust Security Features:

  • 802.1x authentication
  • DHCP Snooping
  • Port-based security by locked MAC
  • ACL filtering to permit or deny traffic based on MAC and IP addresses

Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.

Auto Voice and Auto Video
Automatic Voice over IP prioritization with Auto-VoIP simplifies most complex multi-vendor IP telephones deployments either based on protocols (SIP, H323 and SCCP) or on OUI bytes (default database and user-based OUIs) in the phone source MAC address; providing the best class of service to VoIP streams (both data and signaling) over other ordinary traffic by classifying traffic, and enabling correct egress queue configuration. When deployed IP phones are LLDP-MED compliant, the Voice VLAN will use LLDP-MED to pass on the VLAN ID, 802.1P priority and DSCP values to the IP phones, accelerating convergent deployments.

Comprehensive QoS Features:

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

Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video.

DHCP Snooping
Ensure IP address allocation integrity by allowing only clients with specific IP/MAC addresses to have access to the network.

Dual Firmware Images and Configuration Files
Dual firmware image and dual configuration file for transparent firmware updates and configuration changes with minimum service interruption.

Protected Ports
Ensure no exchange of unicast, broadcast, or multicast traffic between the protected ports on the switch, therefore, improve the security of your converged network where your sensitive phone conversation can stay private and your surveillance video clips can be forwarded to their designated storage device without leakage or alteration.

Dynamic ARP Inspection
Prevents a class of man-in-the-middle attacks, where an unfriendly station intercepts traffic for other stations by poisoning the ARP caches of its unsuspecting neighbors.

Multicast VLAN Registration
Eliminates the replication of the same multicast traffic for every VLAN by sending multicast traffic only on to the dedicated multicast/source VLAN, resulting in more efficient utilization of network bandwidth.

EAV (Ethernet Audio/Video Bridging) Support
Extends Ethernet usage to support multimedia streaming. The Ethernet AVB standard adds QoS (Quality of Service) features like time-synchronized low latency streaming services and bandwidth reservation to make it possible to carry professional quanity audio and video signals on a standard Ethernet line.
