Chapter 1

Introduction

The NETGEAR Smart Switch is a state-of-the-art, high-performance, IEEE-compliant network solution designed for users who require a large number of ports and want the power of Gigabit connectivity to eliminate bottlenecks, boost performance, and increase productivity. To simplify installation, the switch is shipped ready for use out of the box.

This chapter serves as an introduction to the GS700TS Smart Switch and provides the following information:

Overview

Switch Features

Package Contents

Overview

This Installation Guide is for the following NETGEAR Smart Switches:

GS724TS – This product offers support for 24 ports of 10/100/1000 BaseT of which four are Combo ports with four additional SFP combo fiber ports.

GS748TS – This product offers support for 48 ports of 10/100/1000 BaseT of which four are Combo ports with four additional SFP combo fiber ports.

You can stack together up to six units for a maximunm of 192 10/100 ports or you can use a device as a stand-alone.

You can make high-speed connections using the Gigabit ports. For example:

Connecting switches to each other with high-speed links

Connecting to a network backbone

Linking to high-speed servers

Providing 10/100/1000 copper and fiber connectivity

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 be free-standing, or rack mounted in a wiring closet or equipment room. It is IEEE-compliant and offers low latency for high-speed networking. 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, all RJ-45 ports operate in halfor full-duplex mode. The maximum segment length is 328 feet (100 meters) over Category 5 Unshielded Twisted-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-duplex enabled, the switch port connected to the server or PC can provide 2000 Mbps throughput.

Switch Features

The following list identifies the key features of the NETGEAR Smart Switch.

24/48 RJ-45 10/100/1000M auto-sensing Giga switching ports.

Four Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) GBIC slots, which function as combo ports. Combo ports are single ports with two physical connections, SFP fiber and RJ-45 copper. The RJ-45 copper ports corresponding to the Combo ports are the four 10/100/1000M auto-sensing Giga switching ports on each device. If both devices are plugged in, the fiber connection is active, with fiber port taking priority if both are connected.

SFP types are supported are:

1000Base-SX

1000Base-LX
