8th November 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

NETGEAR-ProSafe GS516TPNew Delhi, India, November 8, 2013: NETGEAR, a global networking company has launched its new ProSAFE 16-port Gigabit PoE Smart Switch (GS516TP) with PD (PoE Powered Devices) capability for small and medium businesses (SMBs), educational institutions, hospitals, government agencies, and other networks supporting fewer than 500 users.

The GS516TP offers network managers an affordable switching solution combined with advanced features and flexible powering options. PoE and PD capability on the same device — an industry first for the SMB market — enables the GS516TP to make network switch deployment truly free from AC power outlets, providing maximum flexibility for network build-up, modifications and re-layout.

NETGEAR offers a comprehensive portfolio of PoE switches and is the industry’s leading provider of both Unmanaged and Smart Switches. The GS516TP is part of the NETGEAR family of second-generation Gigabit PoE/PoE+ Smart Switches, which offers powerful L2 and L2+ features, better PoE functions, and enhanced performance and usability. This new family is purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, and data are carried on a single network platform, and is optimized to provide network efficiency, operational cost savings, and ease of management.

The GS516TP is a 16-port Gigabit Smart Switch with PoE and PD features, designed for small and medium-sized networks. It offers simultaneously operational PoE and PD capability. It comes with two PD ports that receive PoE power from any PoE source. At the same time, through its eight PoE ports, it can also deliver power to other connected devices such as WiFi access points, IP phones and IP cameras — the first switch specifically designed for SMBs to come to market with this capability.

Subhodeep Bhattacharya, Regional Director, India & SAARC, NETGEAR said “The GS516TP is the most cost-effective solution for converged networks requiring maximum flexibility in deployment options, especially where a power outlet is not conveniently available, We are confident that SMB network managers will be delighted with the value and deployment flexibility offered by the GS516TP, which also comes with a comprehensive list of advanced features at a price that is attractive to cost- conscious businesses.”

Pricing and Availability:

The NETGEAR ProSAFE GS516TP is available at a suggested price of INR 42,750 (approx) with its authorised distributors in India.
