The NETGEAR SOHO Ethernet Unmanaged Switches provide easy and affordable network connectivity to small offices and home/offices. They are easy to use, reliable, and rugged with metal enclosures. Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) support is also available for supplying both power and data across a single CAT-5 ethernet cable to devices such as IP security cameras, VOIP phones, wireless access points, etc. With these Plug-N-Play switches, you can quickly and easily expand your network connections to multiple devices, with no configuration required. Available with 5 ports to 24 ports, these switches also support energy saving technologies to help you save power and money.

The NETGEAR 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with simple plug-and-play, compact desktop design, and auto-sensing ports provides easy, reliable, and affordable connectivity for your home or small office network. A rugged metal enclosure, silent, fanless design, and wall mount kit allow for convenient deployment to build out your SOHO network. Auto-MDI/MDIX (eliminating the need for crossover cables), jumbo packet support, auto-negotiation for automatic connection at highest speeds, non-blocking switching architecture for maximum throughput, and energy-efficient technology for power savings (IEEE 802.3az and short cable power reduction) make the GS316 the perfect switch for the SOHO environment. The GS316 is covered by a 3 year warranty.
