The number of devices, such as WiFi 6 access points and NAS, with multi-gig capabilities and speed is increasing. Also, the use of modern applications, increasing prevalence of BYOD and usage of more and more video requires companies to have more bandwidth to ensure smooth network traffic that just can’t be handled by gigabit connectivity anymore. Even the smallest firms are doing big business when it comes to the sheer volume of data that their networks are expected to handle, and this load will continue to grow as applications become more advanced.

To help businesses cost-effectively expand their networks with multi-gigabit speeds, Netgear has introduced a couple of new five-port multi-gigabit unmanaged switches, MS105 and MS305. The MS105 and MS305 multi-gigabit ethernet switches come with five 2.5G ports in a metal case that can be placed on a desk or mounted on a wall. These switches are energy efficient, built to last, and rigorously tested to provide the reliability businesses need.

With these additions, Netgear is expanding its comprehensive portfolio of flexible and scalable multi-gig switches ‘built to fit every business need, each with best-in-class engineering, performance and security’.
