The uniform connection between devices allows for faster setup and more comprehensive management, ultimately giving business owners more time back to focus on the work of running their companies.
“Today’s small and mid-sized businesses are more connected than ever, with WiFi-enabled tools powering day-to-day operations. These applications require multi-gigabit speeds and high PoE power to maximize their potential,” said Iphie Chen, senior SMB product line manager at NETGEAR. “Business owners need solutions that cater to their specific needs while being easy to deploy and manage, especially for those that do not have IT resources onsite. As part of the Total Network Solution, the MS108TUP switch offers the speed, efficiency, reliability, and peace of mind of an enterprise solution without the associated complexity or price.”
