The NETGEAR 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch with simple plug-and-play, compact desktop design, and auto-sensing ports provides easy, reliable, and affordable connectivity for your home or small office network. A rugged metal enclosure, silent, fanless design, and wall mount kit allow for convenient deployment to build out your SOHO network. Auto-MDI/MDIX (eliminating the need for crossover cables), jumbo packet support, auto-negotiation for automatic connection at highest speeds, non-blocking switching architecture for maximum throughput, and energy-efficient technology for power savings (IEEE 802.3az and short cable power reduction) make the GS316 the perfect switch for the SOHO environment.
