Netgear has introduced four new Gigabit switches with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+)and SFP ports for fiber uplinks. These switches expand the second-generation family of Smart Managed Pro Switches purposely designed for converged networks where voice, video, data, and IoT are all carried on a single network platform, with maximum security.
Within small and medium-sized organizations — such as hospitality, catering, education, and retail industries — there is growing deployment of VoIP phones, IP security cameras, video-over-IP endpoints, proximity sensors, LED lighting, secure access door locks, and other IoT devices. The dense proximity of these devices requires network switches capable of supporting PoE so a network manager can add power-hungry devices to the network with a single wire for power AND connectivity. Increasing the power demands on PoE switches are 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access points as well as pan-tilt-zoom HD surveillance cameras with features such as night vision and built-in motion tracking, which require PoE+ power (802.3at).
These four new Smart Managed Pro switches are also equipped with enhanced security features:
- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Snooping– which monitors for and allows only authorized DHCP servers to respond to DHCP requests and to pass network data to clients. It also provides the ability to control the rate of traffic sent of DHCP requests on client ports, thereby mitigating the effect of DHCP Denial of Service (DoS) attacks from an individual client or access port.
- Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Inspection (DAI) – DAI inspects ARP packets on the Local Area Network (LAN) and uses the information in the DHCP snooping database on a switch to validate ARP packets and to protect against ARP spoofing/poisoning/cache poisoning.
The combination of these two forms a protection against man-in-the-middle attacks when “attackers” use an IP address of a different valid client to secretly relay or alter the communication between devices in the network.
