ZyXEL steps up its mid-market challenge with high availability switches for mission-critical networks

New XS3700 and XS3900 switches offer 10GbE Ethernet performance, advanced management and the built-in redundancy needed at the data centre and across the network infrastructure

10.12.2013

ZyXEL Communications, a leading supplier of networking and communications solutions, has extended its range of networking switches, introducing a new series of advanced devices designed to deliver the high-availability, performance, and manageability needed to support mission-critical data centres and network infrastructures. 

The GS3700 and XGS3700 family of Layer 2-Plus managed switches are designed for use in SMB and branch office networks. They deliver Gigabit performance with optional 10GbE uplinks making them ideal for use as aggregation switches across the network.   All four 24- and 48-port models are also available with support for high-powered Power-over-Ethernet, making the switches ideal platforms for extended wireless networks, IP telephony and IP-based surveillance solutions. 

The ZyXEL XS3900-48F is a high-density ‘top-of-the-rack’ 10GbE switch that provides the throughput required to optimise performance for in virtualised data centres and larger networks. It comes with 48 10GbE SFP+ ports and four 40GbE QSFP+ uplinks, providing the very high bandwidth and scalability required to support intensive network traffic. 

Both the 3700 series and XS3900-48F switches come with redundant and hot-swappable fans, providing advanced resiliency for mission-critical networking. These features, combined with the Layer 2-Plus management and ZyXEL’s limited lifetime warranty, deliver all the functionality organisations need and guaranteed return-on-investment. For ZyXEL partners the launch represents a major opportunity to take ZyXEL into new areas of the market and to challenge the usual default choices in the enterprise and mid-market sector, says Martin Bratičák, Head of Channel CEE at ZyXEL. 

“Our new switches offer the high availability, throughput and flexibility that mid-sized and enterprise organisations need to ensure optimum performance for virtualised applications and rich, IP-based network services. They enhance ZyXEL’s growing reputation for delivering networking solutions that offer excellent performance, reliability and solid investment protection. We have been very successful in the SMB market with our Smart Managed switches and with the 3700 series ideally suited for use within the network fabric and at its edge, and the XS3900 optimised to cope with the intensive workloads at the gateway to the data centre, ZyXEL partners can offer complete end-to-end networking solutions for larger SMB and mid-sized customers.” 

The built-in redundancy features will be of particular interest to potential customers who rely on networking infrastructure to support their critical applications and services every day. As well as redundant and hot-swappable power supplies and optional hot-swappable fan modules, the switches support both equal-cost multi-path routing (ECMP) and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), providing enhanced performance and bandwidth optimisation.

Bratičák says: “With the 3700 series and the XS3900 ZyXEL is really stepping up its challenge in the network infrastructure market. These are the only switches in their class to offer this level of redundancy and versatility. They have all or most of the management capabilities needed to meet the growing need to support much higher levels of traffic and new services across the network, whilst also maintaining effective control, keeping costs down and ensuring that mission-critical applications have the bandwidth they need. These switches enable ZyXEL reseller partners to compete for and win business against the vendors that almost always win business by default – even though they may not offer the best performance, versatility or investment protection. ZyXEL offers them a genuine, viable and highly-attractive alternative. In addition, ZyXEL partners can earn excellent margins on these switches, with special incentives and bid support available on projects of all sizes through our distribution partners.” 

ZyXEL is already has key player in the fully-managed switch market and these new switches lines strengthen its position even more.
