July 09 , 2012; Hsinchu, Taiwan – ZyXEL Communications, a world-class broadband networking company that provides leading Internet products and solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications and service providers to small- and medium-sized businesses and home users, launches a brand-new Smart Managed Switch series – the XGS1910/GS1910. Powered by the industry’s most comprehensive L2 features: high-speed GbE to desktop, 10GbE uplink, PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology and IPv6 compatibility, 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. 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. The complete, advanced feature sets and extensive model options allow businesses to flexibly choose the performance level according to the requirement of organisation growth – from small- to medium-scale operations with growing desktop users and needs for advanced Internet applications to boosting productivity in business communications and daily operations. In particular, the high-performance GbE and 10GbE models will enable businesses to create hassle-free IT environments and achieve desirable LAN performance for outstanding efficiency and productivity.
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. With the enhancements, energy consumption of the Ethernet devices can be reduced through defining low-power modes and operating periods to save costs effectively with 70% less power consumption.
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.
