As a leading provider of network equipment for SMBs, NETGEAR knows the importance of PoE+ port counts and power budgets that are adaptable to a business’ unique, ever-changing needs, whether in hospitality, catering, education, retail or beyond. This need for flexibility is why NETGEAR added PoE+ with a healthy power budget to our new Insight Managed smart cloud switches, and a full suite of advanced L2+/L3 Lite switching features, supporting networks of any complexity and designed with scalability in mind to meet the current and future needs of a fully converged network.

Used in conjunction with the NETGEAR Insight app or the Insight Cloud Portal, you can quickly discover, set up, receive notifications, monitor and manage your Insight Managed Switches, VPN Routers, Network Storage and Wireless Access Points. You will be informed the minute something happens to your network device and have network management capabilities as if you were standing right in front of it, whether at home, at the office, on the road, or at the beach.

NETGEAR Insight Managed products are fully integrated, cloud manageable devices, making them a breeze to connect directly to the Cloud for remote management. Simply plug the switch or AP into your network and the internet, use the Insight app or Insight Cloud Portal to discover or add the device to your cloud-managed network and you’re ready to go. No additional hardware, no software, no server to set up and maintain.

With no cloud key, VPN/proxy appliance, or cloud server to purchase and set up, and no large, long-term licensing fees ensuring access to your network and devices, significant recurring costs are eliminated. In fact, NETGEAR Insight Managed products have the lowest total cost of ownership of any remote/cloud manageable networking devices in the industry.

In an increasingly mobile world, reliable, flexible, and highly functional remote network management has become a top priority for many companies. With fully integrated remote cloud manageability and powerful L2+/L3 Lite features, The GC108P/GC108PP are the most versatile and easy to manage switches on the market for any environment, providing maximum flexibility and easy deployment in your network.

“Our customers, resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) across the globe have been asking for a small form factor, durable PoE switch with secure remote management. We have answered this call with these new compact yet powerful switches, – GC108P and GC108PP – which are designed to connect and power wireless access points, cameras, phones and IoT devices,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of product line management for SMB products at NETGEAR. “Additionally, with the Insight Pro management solution, MSPs will also be capable of providing remote services to their clients.
