ZyXEL Enhances Network Switching with IPv6-certified Software

Enabling Businesses to Migrate to IPv6 Protocol Hassle-free

January 18, 2011; Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class broadband networking company providing leading Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small- and medium-sized businesses to home users, today announces its IPv6-certified software for switching solutions. The new software aims to help businesses quickly adapt to the new IPv6 protocol with conformity and interoperability for barrier-free communication efficiency and operating productivity as the new Internet Protocol ramps out its pervasive dominance soon.

Developed to support ZyXEL’s GS2200 Switching Series, the new IPv6-certified ZyNOS 4.0 software enables businesses to achieve higher network performance and efficiency without additional investment on new hardware for migration to IPv6; in other words, businesses can start migrating with the new software upgrade alone. With an architecture to perform high-speed access networking over GoE (Gigabit over Ethernet) and 802.11n Wireless LAN technology, the GS2200 Series delivers high switching performance to enable Internet connectivity from access points to all intra-office desktop devices. This not only allows uninterrupted operation, but also brings higher efficiency and throughput to accommodate application-intensive network traffics, especially when massive IP addresses are expected with new Version 6 protocol.

To meet the needs of the continuing evolution of network technologies and diversified applications, the enhanced software ensures businesses to conquer milestones for expandability and adaptability with the IPv6 protocol while keeping the IT investments and operations manageable. Moreover, as many network applications, particularly for business deployments, are unified to integrate around a single architecture, impeccable interoperability and compliance are critical to ensure the best efficiency and performance for both wired and wireless business communications. The software-enhanced GS2200 Switching Series is the best in its class for users to prepare their businesses for the implementation of truly unified networks.

The new ZyNOS4.0 software is ready for download now. Please proceed to download page or contact your ZyXEL representatives for further inquiry.
