Delivering 10G line-rate performance for server virtualization and convergence and supporting the ZyXEL One Network, a streamlined networking solution, the XS3700-24 elevates small- and medium-sized business networks to enterprise level, and helps SMBs to cope with the growing needs for network bandwidth.

ZyXEL is a global leader in broadband networking technology, providing a wide portfolio of wired and wireless network solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small to medium-sized business, and to home users.

With bandwidth-intensive activities such as voice/video streaming and cloud applications now the norm at many workplaces, and more network devices adopting advanced networking standards such as IEEE 802.11ac, the exploding demand for network bandwidth has pushed SMBs to look for new solutions.

Enterprise-grade Network Backbone for SMBs
To ease SMBs’ pain in network growth and transition, users can take advantage of the XS3700-24’s 10G copper ports for server aggregation and the SFP+ ports for switch aggregation of 10G uplink, an ideal way to build an SMB core network. Aside from a wide array of Layer 2 network management functions and additional support on basic static or policy routing of Layer 3, the XS3700-24 is also equipped with dual-stack-capabilities for both IPv4 and IPv6 features, a comprehensive, future-proofed IPv6 solution to suit daily SMB operations today and tomorrow, with no extra costs.

Simply Reliable, Just No Downtime
With business rolling every minute, a business network cannot afford any unexpected stops. ZyXEL’s XS3700-24 is born to deliver “no single point of failure” (NSPOF), a user experience that is based on built-in redundancy features. The power and fan modules are hot-swappable and interchangeable with other 3700 Series switch models. In addition, it has back-to-front air flow holes for better heat dissipation, and it also supports Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) software function and dual image feature, thereby ensuring your network is always on, even during maintenance or troubleshooting.

Hassle-Free Network Management
While delivering unmatched resilience and non-blocking performance, ZyXEL’s XS3700-24 gives users more simplicity in use. The command line interface of the XS3700-24 allows it to configure multiple switches and is consistent with ZyXEL’s managed switches. Coupling it with ZyXEL One Network, users can utilize ZyXEL’s ZON Utility to check locations, assign IPs, reboot, and perform firmware upgrades on multiple switches, all from a single platform.

Plus the Smart Connect function of ZyXEL One Network which enables XS3700-24 to auto-discover all ZyXEL devices on the network and most devices that supporting Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP), users can see and manage all the devices on the network through a simple click on the displayed devices, alleviating users from manning network devices one after another and simplifying the network management process.

The release of the XS3700-24 is an important part of realizing ZyXEL’s One Strategy to satisfy the increased demand for network bandwidth in SMBs with a pain-free, streamlined networking experience.
