GS1200-5/GS1200-8, 5-Port/8-Port Web Managed Gigabit Switch

Empower your connected devices

Easy web management

This switch comes with a user-friendly web-based set-up interface that walks you through setup, configuration and management—including configuration backups and firmware upgrades—quickly and easily. With a few simple clicks, your network will be humming along, so you can get back to business.

IGMP Snooping for optimized traffic delivery

Based on the IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) query and report messages, the switch forwards traffic only to the ports that request the multicast traffic rather than to all ports. It helps to optimize multicast performance and is especially useful for bandwidth-intensive IP multicast applications such as online media streaming and gaming.

VLAN segregation for enhanced network security

VLAN (virtual local area network) can be used to separate traffic within a business such as isolating resources between network administrators and general users or between employees and public guest users.

Enhanced port-based QoS for better traffic control

QoS (Quality of service) is the ability to provide different priority to different applications, users, or video/voice/data flows, or to guarantee a certain level of performance to a data flow.

Advanced energy-savings at work

This switch’s built-in IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) function automatically detects network traffic and adjusts power consumption dynamically to reduce power usage during times of low traffic.


Fanless, noiseless design

Extend your network control and visibility without disrupting your quiet business environment. This business switch features a fanless design that ensures noiseless operation and greater reliability over time with fewer parts to fail.


More comprehensive smart features included

Featuring Gigabit performance that’s 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. Deliver up to 2,000 Mbps of dedicated, non-blocking bandwidth per port and more advanced features like port mirroring, Jumbo Frame, broadcast storm control, loop detection/prevention. It’s a great choice for SMBs who want to enjoy high-speed business network applications!
