Case Studies


With the school’s storage needs rising from 1TB 6 years ago to 7TB today, the NETGEAR solution provides more than enough capacity to meet the school’s needs now and in the future. Back-ups are now happening more quickly and files are able to be restored with ease if accidentally deleted, without having to go through the back-up software. Staff can easily save and share data rather than having to email or transfer files via USB pens.
Gary and his team now have more time to focus on other aspects of their role instead of spending hours scanning and deleting duplicate files to free up space on the server. The deduplication facility means that this now happens automatically, and all that is needed is an occasional scan and delete of files that shouldn’t be saved on the school system. Moving forward, the school is looking to add another ReadyDATA unit, so the two can mirror each other and provide back-up in the event of a technical issue or access problem. It also plans to work with NETGEAR to upgrade its wireless network and improve performance across all buildings on the school site.


NETGEAR ProSafe* Access Points

“In addition to meeting our needs for highperformance and scalability, Intel’s IXP4XX network processors gave us the advantage and flexibility to design one platform for the entire product line.”
“The NPEs really impressed me because we could offload functions from the Intel XScale core to get really high performance for encryption and other security features.” Stephen Tsai Product Development Manager, NETGEAR.


We have been extremely impressed with the quality of products and service from NETGEAR. I now have complete confidence that if we doubled in size tomorrow, our storage provision is robust enough to cope and would not break a sweat. Marcus Nye, IT manager, Haynes Bros Ltd.

A switch is used in a wired network to connect to other devices using Ethernet cables. The switch allows each connected device to talk to the others. Wireless-only networks do not use switches because devices such as wireless routers and adapters communicate directly with one another.
Switches offer a number of advantages:

  • Switches allow you to connect various of devices.
  • Switches keep traffic between two devices from getting in the way of your other devices on the same network.
  • Switches allow communication (within your network) that's even faster than the Internet.
  • Switches allow you to control who has access to various parts of the network.
  • Switches allow you to monitor usage.

What is the difference between a router and a modem?

The main difference between the two devices is that a modem lets you connect to the internet, while a router distributes that connection to different devices. A modem is your gateway to the web, while a router is a central hub for your devices.
