Easy web management and set-up wizardThis switch comes with a user-friendly web-based set-up wizard that walks you through setup, configuration and management—including configuration backups and firmware upgrades—quickly and easily. With a few simple clicks, your network will be humming along, so you can get back to business.IGMP Snooping for optimized traffic deliveryBased on the IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) query and report messages, the switch forwards traffic only to the ports that request the multicast traffic rather than to all ports. It helps to optimize multicast performance and is especially useful for bandwidth-intensive IP multicast applications such as online media streaming and gaming.VLAN segregation for enhanced network securityVLAN (virtual local area network) can be used to separate traffic within a business such as isolating resources between network administrators and general users or between employees and public guest users.Enhanced port-based QoS for better traffic controlQoS (Quality of service) is the ability to provide different priority to different applications, users, or video/voice/data flows, or to guarantee a certain level of performance to a data flow.Link Aggregation increase throughput beyond what a single connection could sustainGS1200-5/8 combines 2 physical ports together to make a single high-bandwidth data path, for faster file transfers and to enhance connection reliability.Advanced energy-savings at workThis switch’s built-in IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) function automatically detects network traffic and adjusts power consumption dynamically to reduce power usage during times of low traffic.Fanless, noiseless designExtend your network control and visibility without disrupting your quiet business environment.
