NETGEAR Advances Powerful PoE+ Applications With New Technologies Introduced at CES 2020

Newest updates to the NETGEAR Unmanaged and Smart Managed Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ switches to provide elevated power budgets and uninterrupted PoE++ power for businesses

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTGR), the leading provider of networking products that power businesses both large and small, today announced the latest additions to its Unmanaged and Smart Managed Pro switch series with new Gigabit Ethernet PoE+ and Ultra60 PoE++ models now available worldwide. Included with the latest additions is the first Cloud managed Ultra60 PoE++ switch in the industry with uninterrupted power PoE for businesses of all sizes. The latest products are yet a further extension of NETGEAR’s modern business advancements, which include the CES® 2020 Innovation Awards Honoree, the Insight Instant Mesh WiFi solution.

The global PoE market is expected to offer significant growth over the coming years as widespread adoption of IP communication, WiFi connectivity, and increasing demand for network security cameras are projected to drive the industry demand. PoE devices are now encompassing VoIP phones, IP Security Cameras, wireless access points, proximity sensors, door locks, and new applications such as displays, panel PCs, LED lighting, audio speakers, and POS terminals using the latest PoE++ standard, as well as other IoT devices.

Similarly, as modern business organizations continue to see a two-fold trend of deploying more PoE devices, with more power, high-performance PoE switches are in pivotal demand to run businesses. With the IoT continuously introducing wired devices for smart home and smart building automation systems, the 802.3bt PoE standard is called to support those devices that require greater power.

To meet these ever-important and business-critical demands, NETGEAR has developed a series of product enhancements addressing the growth of PoE products on the market. These new members of the Unmanaged and Smart Managed Switch family enable deployment of PoE+ ports exactly where you need them, and include:

“It is no secret that PoE Power capabilities will drive greater efficiencies than ever in 2020 as installers turn to these switches to keep up with user demands,” said Richard Jonker, vice president of SMB product management for NETGEAR. “NETGEAR intends to support these businesses in their migration to PoE every step of the way, and we are working to ensure our technology matches their evolved needs.”
