GS700TS Hardware Installation Guide

The GS700TS Smart Switch also provides the benefit of administrative management with a complete package of features for the observation, configuration, and control of the network. With a Webbased Graphical User Interface (GUI), you can view the switch’s many features and use them in a simple and intuitive manner. The switch’s management features include configuration for port and switch information, VLAN for traffic control, port trunking for increased bandwidth, and Class of Service (CoS) for traffic prioritization. These features provide better understanding and control of the network. Initial discovery of the switch on the network requires the SmartWizard Discovery program, a utility that runs on a PC.

The GS700TS Smart Switch can befree-standing,or rack mounted in a wiring closet or equipment room. It isIEEE-compliantand offers low latency forhigh-speednetworking. All ports can automatically negotiate to the highest speed. This capability makes the switch ideal for environments that have a mix of Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet devices. In addition, allRJ-45ports operate in halforfull-duplexmode. The maximum segment length is 328 feet (100 meters) over Category 5 UnshieldedTwisted-Pair(UTP) cable, but much longer for fiber connections using SFP GBIC modules.

The NETGEAR Smart Switch can be used as a desktop to build a small network that enables you to have 1000 Mbps access to a file server. With full-duplexenabled, the switch port connected to the server or PC can provide 2000 Mbps throughput.

Web-basedInterface

SNMP Management Station

Devices support stacking up to six units per stack, or can operate as stand-aloneunits. Up to 192 10/100/1000 ports are supported in a stack

Introduction

1-16

v1.0, November 2007

GS700TS Hardware Installation Guide

During the Stacking setup, the switches will auto-selectone as the Stacking Master. All other devices are named as slave stack members, and assigned a unique Unit ID. One of the slave units is designated as the backup master. The backup master acts as a slave stack member, but can become a stack master in the event of failure of stack master. The master and backup master are assigned unit IDs of 1 and 2. The Stack Master provides a Single point of control and management as well as a single interface in which to control and manage the stack.

Switch software is downloaded separately for each stack members. However, all units in the stack must be running the same software version.

A device can operate in one of the following modes:

Stand-alone– The unit runs as a general switch and does not run the stacking application.

Master Unit – Manages the Stack and is responsible for the configuration.

Master-Backup– Runs as a slave unit and monitors the operation of the stack master. If the master unit fails, theMaster-Backupautomatically assumes theStack-Masterrole. If a MasterBackup becomes the Master Unit, anotherMaster-Backupwill need to be selected manually. One of the Slave units will not automatically become aMaster-Backup.

Slave – Runs a slave version of the Switching Algorithm, which allows the applications running on the master unit to control the resources of the slave unit.
