Smart switches with optional remote/cloud management are the first switches from NETGEAR with anywhere configuration and management. Using either the NETGEAR Insight app on your mobile device or tablet, or the Insight Cloud Portal* from your PC, Mac, or tablet, you can quickly discover, setup, monitor and manage your Insight Managed Switches, Wireless Access Points, and Business-class ReadyNAS storage devices, from anywhere! With their remote cloud manageability, sleek design, Gigabit Ethernet, 1G SFP and 10G SFP+ fiber ports, Smart switches with optional remote/cloud management are the most versatile switches in the market for any environment. Whether at home, out of the office or on a business trip, you can still manage and monitor your network as if you were right there, all from the palm of your hand and from anywhere in the world!

*The Insight Cloud Portal requires an Insight Premium or Insight Pro subscription.
NETGEAR Smart switches are fully-integrated, cloud-manageable devices, and therefore require no additional hardware (cloud keys, network portals, local servers, VPN or proxy appliances etc) to directly connect to the cloud and allow remote management. Just plug the switch into your network and the internet, use the Insight app to discover and add the device to your cloud managed network, and you’re now connected. No additional hardware, no software or server to setup, nothing; just connect and go.
Insight Managed Smart Cloud switches have a modern, clean design, with a full complement of LEDs including power, cloud connection, PoE max1, and fan status, as well as per port connection/link status and PoE power status1. All models have whisper quiet fan(s), a Kensington lock receptacle, and are rack-mountable with the included rack-mount kit.
On GC728XP/GC752XP, all 24 and 48 Gigabit Ethernet copper ports support PoE+ (802.3at) with total PoE budgets of 390W (GC728XP) and 505W (GC752XP) for power-hungry devices of today and the future. And now with remote PoE scheduling, you have complete control over your PoE connected devices, all from the Insight management solution!
Dedicated SFP and SFP+ ports provide 1G and 10G fiber uplinks without sacrificing any downlink copper Gigabit Ethernet port, and across long distances. 2 SFP 1G ports per model and additional 2 SFP+ 10G ports provide not only redundant uplinks, but can also build dual redundancy by a trunked uplink with link aggregation and failover.
With the NETGEAR Insight management solution, you can setup, manage, and monitor all of your networks and multiple locations from anywhere, anytime and any device (smartphone or tablet with Insight mobile app or PC, Mac, or tablet with the Insight Cloud Portal*). Check network status, view dashboards for network health and activity, power cycle PoE-connected devices, and update firmware remotely. With the Insight Cloud service, the Insight mobile app or the Insight Cloud web portal*, you can update firmware on your Insight Managed devices directly from the cloud, from anywhere in the world!
NETGEAR Smart switches and Wireless Access Points using NETGEAR Insight allow for cross-device automated configuration of VLANs, QoS, ACLs and LAGs. Auto-join and configure (zero-touch provisioning) allows for additional devices added to the network to automatically inherit the network configuration parameters for seamless integration. Firmware updates are done through NETGEAR Insight directly to the device, from anywhere in the world!
Insight Managed Smart Cloud switches support a full suite of advanced L2+/L3 Lite switching features for everything from a simple network to a highly complex one, and are designed to meet current and future needs of fully converged network. Advanced features include include VLANs, LAGs, QoS, ACLs, IPv6 support, IPv4 & IPv6 Static Routing, IGMP snooping, multicast, STP/RSTP/MSTP, rate limiting, advanced per port PoE controls, PoE scheduling, and more.
Ensure investment protection and a smooth migration to IPv6-based network without switch replacement with comprehensive IPv6 support for management, QoS, and ACLs. 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.
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.
Build a secured, converged network with all types of traffic by preventing external attacks and blocking malware while allowing secure access for authorized users.
Advanced controls for optimized network performance and better delivery of mission-critical traffic such as voice and video. Ingress and egress rate limiting allows for bandwidth shaping for mitigating network resources constraints or for optimizing guest access bandwidth on the network.
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.
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.
Build up bigger bandwidth to support aggregated uplink/downlink traffic. Automatically configures across Insight Managed devices.
Detect and prevent accidental network loops and protect against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks.
Allows IT administrators to increase network security, better utilize network resources and conserve energy by scheduling or remotely controlling on/off of PoE ports.
For better and quicker network diagnostics and troubleshooting.
