24-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Mac / PC / Linux / RJ45
Power up Your Small Network to Gigabit Speeds!
The NETGEAR ProSAFE® Gigabit Unmanaged Switch series helps businesses cost-effectively expand their network to Gigabit speeds and higher port counts. These unmanaged Gigabit switches come in a wide range of models including desktop and rackmount form factors and 24 port configurations. These switches are energy efficient, built to last, and rigorously tested to provide the reliability businesses need. 802.1p traffic prioritization and jumbo frame support allow for seamless integration with more sophisticated networks.
Features 24 high-speed, auto-switching 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet connections. And because Copper Gigabit Ethernet is a full duplex standard, you can get up to 2000Mb/s on each port.
Integrates 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps devices on the same network and will honor TOS/802.1p traffic prioritization. Every port automatically senses the right speed and full/half duplex mode, while Auto Uplink technology automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables.
LEDs embedded in each of the 24 RJ-45 jacks make for easy monitoring. The ProSAFE JGS524 is compact enough for a desktop and comes with a rack-mount kit perfect for installing into your network set up. More over, the
ProSAFE JGS524 saves energy with its auto green mode, which detects cable length and adjusts power usage, and its power-down mode for unused ports. It's also compatible with either PC, Macintosh, UNIX, or Linux operating systems.
Providing plug-&-play simplicity with exceptional performance and reliability, the JGS524 is a cost effective solution for your growing network.
