Zyxel's 10GbE L2+ Managed Switch Offers Line-rate Performance for Virtualization and Convergence

Benefits

Flexible port configuration for transitioning networks

The XS3700-24 features a host of connectivity options for flexible port configuration, including eight 10GbE copper connection ports, 12-port SFP+ for 10GbE uplink and four 10GbE SFP+ combos for fiber links. This allows businesses to leverage copper connectivity in their existing 10GbE servers. It is now possible to increase network flexibility to incrementally meet growing bandwidth demands by aggregating current 10GbE switches with fiber links through this 24-port 10GbE switch.

Enterprise-grade network backbone for SMBs

Faster speeds, increased bandwidth and enhanced reliability are a must for any business network undergoing data center consolidation and virtualization. The XS3700-24’s built-in 10GbE aggregation capabilities allow the device to deliver 480 Gbps switching capacity and 357.14 Mpps forwarding rates with an added 4MB packet buffer. Static route and policy route ensure zero overhead on traffic for the best possible quality of service (QoS). Finally, the XS3700-24 makes virtualization and convergence easy with its high-density line-in performance.

Zyxel One Network experience

Aiming for relieving our customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, Zyxel One Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing our customers to focus on the business priorities. Zyxel One Network presents an easy-to-use tool, Zyxel One Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. Zyxel Smart Connect allows Zyxel networking equipment to be aware and recognize each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling. Zyxel One Network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to Wi-Fi AP and to Gateway.

Resiliency and availability for non-stop business continuity

The XS3700-24 features no single point of failure (NSPOF) in both its hardware and software design, providing the reliability necessary for uninterrupted service in a business environment. This is made possible by the device’s high-redundancy hardware architecture, which includes dual internal power supplies, dual image on dual flash and high-availability software design via Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP). This last feature—VRRP—allows several first-hop virtual routers to dynamically share an IP address by assigning one the role of master while the remainder are designated as backups.

Comprehensive security and access protection

Security is on the mind of every user and network administrator these days. That is why Zyxel equips the XS3700-24 with the most comprehensive array of security features to enhance isolation and control while avoiding service interruptions, making it the ideal SMB solution for virtualization and convergence. Once such feature is loop guard, which helps avoid breaks in service caused by switching loops. Other advanced defense mechanisms include TACAS+ and RADIUS authentication, both of which can increase system security by blocking unauthorized logons. Finally, features like IP source guard, DHCP snooping and ARP inspection can detect and block international network attacks.

Feature Highlights

10GbE Connectivity

Distinct from Gigabit Ethernet switches, 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches offer higher levels of scalability and efficiency for network infrastructure. The XS3700-24 comes with a combination of 10GbE RJ-45, 10GbE SFP+ and 10GbE combo (RJ-45/SFP) connectivity, allowing simple and flexible upgrading and deployment of 10GbE networks.


IPv6

Supported with comprehensive IPv6 management features, the XS3700-24 helps businesses stay ahead and prepare for future IPv6 networks. Full IPv6 support features include auto configuration, duplicate address prevention, dual-stack and neighbor discovery to ensure a business’s investment is protected.


Zyxel One Network Utility

The XS3700-24 comes with ZON Utility to facilitate streamlined network management. Administrators can check locations, assign IP, reboot and upgrade firmware for multiple switches from just one platform. There’s no need for administrators to use direct access or expensive, overly specific network management tools.


CLI Management

Administrators are able to manage the network via both Web-based GUI and command line interface (CLI) for more advanced control. The CLI of XS3700-24 brings highly efficient for rolling out new configurations on multiple switches. Additionally, Zyxel CLI is consistent throughout all models of the Switch 2210, 3700 and 3900 series.


Neighbor Device Discovery

Part of the Zyxel One Network experience, the XS3700-24 is able to discover all connected Zyxel networking devices, as well as other hardware supporting LLDP devices. This allows administrators to see what devices are connected to the network, what ports are in use, device IP and even firmware version.


Internal Redundant Power Supply

With dual internal power supplies, the XS3700-24 ensures 100% uptime in the event of a power supply failure, while at the same time saving rack space usually taken up by external power supplies. In addition, power supply modules support hot swapping to avoid interruption during trouble shooting.


Web GUI Redirection

Often, when administrators need to update or change configuration of devices, they must do so by looking for the device’s IP address and login. Now, a simple click on the displayed devices brings administrators to the Web GUI for additional configuration. It is no longer necessary to look up the latest inventory list to confirm the IP address of a specific device.
