The GS110TP is a small device. It is only 9.3 inches long by 4 inches deep and about1 inch tall. Yet it manages to pack quite a bit of features into this small box. In fact, this is the smallest full 8-port GBe POE managed switch that I have worked with.
I was very surprised to read all of the functions that are available to you when this is attached to your network. In this small box you get up to 46 Watts of nominal power across the 8 ports; each of these can have their own schedule for turning on and shutting off the power to the devices attached. This is great for anyone interested in lowering their power bill. Here you can also see a reset switch. This only power cycles the switch and does not reset any of your settings. It is like a power button, but one that is not easy to accidentally press.
Another feature that I found to be surprising is that fact that there are two independent (not shared) SFP ports for fiber connections. This means that you can connect this to a much faster fiber back bone for data uplink and still keep the other 8 ports available for use. In this shot you can see the factory defaults button. This is the one you press when you are ready to wipe all of your settings and start again.
The ProSafe GS110TP has a durable metal shell protecting the internal components and can also act like a heat sink to help keep the interior cool. Due to its size (and some extras thrown in according to NETGEAR) the GS110TP does not require any active cooling.
The back of the GS110TP has a small vent on it as well as the power port, a locking port (for a cable lock) and a grounding pin to make sure that this device is properly grounded (some sites require the unit to be grounded while in place). That is pretty much all there is to the outside; it is interesting because of its small design and construction, but it is not what you would call an attractive product.
Looking at the general specs, you see what you would expect from a typical GBe switch.
It is not until we take a look at the Administrative Management specs that we see just how much is packed into this little device. Some of the items of particular interest are that you can really lock down this switch to prevent unauthorized access to the network.
