ZyXEL Unleashes Smart Managed Switch series

ZyXEL Communications has launched new series of Smart Managed Switch – the XGS1910/GS1910. The premium ZyXEL managed switching solution delivers outstanding performance and efficiency in network traffic management, QoS (Quality of Service), security management and power management at a competitive price-performance ratio and is powered by the industry’s most comprehensive L2 features: high-speed GbE to desktop, 10GbE uplink, PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology and IPv6 compatibility. As bandwidth-intensive IP-enabled applications and devices continue to evolve along with cloud services, mobile connectivity and the new Internet Protocol, businesses need smart networks with dynamic mechanism and manageability to sustain future growth.

Designed with a variety of VLAN features such as MAC (Media Access Control), protocol-based VLAN and guest VLAN, the new ZyXEL XGS1910/GS1910 Smart Managed Switches provide a more comprehensive set of network management capabilities on top of general Web managed switch features. The comprehensive range of the series comprises of six models – XGS1910-24/48, GS1910-24/24HP and GS1910-48/48HP – that provides 2/4 10GbE ports for uplinks and/or stacking links (XGS1910 models), 24/48 PoE (Power over Ethernet) ports (GS1910-24HP/48HP) and Gigabit connectivity.

PoE (Power over Ethernet) is a technology that offers great help on IT investment and management of customers, especially the cost-conscious small- and medium-size businesses. Even with several high-power devices such as IP phones, wireless routers or wireless access points connected to the switch, the users can be relieved of the power overloading concerns.

To help businesses in terms of environment-friendliness and operating costs as expansion continues, the new Smart Managed Switches adopt the IEEE 802.3az EEE standard, an energy-efficient Ethernet feature, to conserve power.

The new Smart Managed Switch XGS1910/GS1910 Series is IPv6-ready to prepare businesses for migration to the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Businesses are not only secured by the uninterrupted, end-to-end connectivity, but also strengthened for more peer-to-peer (P2P) applications integrated into the IPv6 infrastructure.
