Netgear GS116NA ProSafe 16-Port 10/100/1000 Switch

The Netgear GS116NA is an unmanaged 16-port Gigabit 10/100/1000 Desktop switch that provides a powerful, high speed network on a small scale. The GS116 lets you build a system that gives full dedicated 1000 Mbps connections, suitable for instantaneously moving large files across the network. This standards-based switch allows you to integrate your existing or future VoIP infrastructure with 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices. 

Netgear GS116NA ProSafe 16 Port Gigabit Desktop Switch Overview 

The GS116 is perfect for workgroups or for upgrading workstations to Gigabit speeds. It has a compact, and fan-less, unobstrusive design. This switch features 10/100/1000 auto switching Mbps Ethernet connections, and the copper Gigabit Ethernet offers up to 2000 Mbps on each port. This switch is also versatile enough to honor Layer 2 802.1p and Layer 3 DSCP traffic priority tags. The size of the GS116 is convinient for both desktop and wall mounting, and it has a fanless design for silent operation.
