GS305E and GS308E allow businesses to optimize their network and eliminate bottlenecks with the best speed-to-affordability ratio
San Jose, CA — April 16, 2019 — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR) the leading provider of networking products that power today’s small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), has announced the availability of the new 5-port (GS305E) and 8-port (GS308E) Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Plus Switches designed to meet the networking challenges of small businesses.
Today’s growing small businesses depend on their network to carry out mission-critical business activities. Companies are including more network traffic and applications such as VoIP phones and IP cameras on their Ethernet infrastructure.

The NETGEAR GS305E 5-port and the 8-port GS308E switches offer traffic separation (VLAN), traffic priority (QoS), Link Aggregation (LAG), cable health check and loop prevention. Through an intuitive GUI they provide easy, reliable and affordable plug-and-play connectivity to quickly expand your business for workstations/servers, NAS storage, printers, and PCs with a silent and sturdy metal design. These switches also come with the NETGEAR 3-year Hardware Warranty and 90 days Technical support.
