As demands for connection from networking devices such as IP phones, IP cameras and access points increase, deployment complexity and cost rise as well. For less cable usage and investment, Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology provides both data connection and electrical power to devices through just one cable.
To fulfill various applications and flexible network deployments in different sectors, ZyXEL offers a complete portfolio including a wide range of Unmanaged, Smart Managed, and Managed PoE switches that accommodate Power Devices (PD) without limitation thanks to the IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at standard support.

Why ZyXEL PoE Switches?

ZyXEL PoE switches offer high PoE power budget that is almost double which of the competitors, and they support the 802.3at standard to easily fulfill powerhungry PD requirement such as Dome camera, pan-tiltzoom (PTZ) camera and the latest 802.11ac AP.

Additionally, the ZyXEL PoE switches are made with high-quality components to ensure stability and durable connectivity essential to PoE applications such as IP surveillance and more.

High power budget
ZyXEL PoE switches support the IEEE 802.3af PoE and 802.3at PoE Plus standards that provide up to 30 watts of power per port for advanced Powered Devices (PD) like 802.11ac wireless APs and video IP phones. Apart from this, ZyXEL 8- and 24-port PoE switches offers higher PoE power budget than others for more flexible PoE deployment.

Plug and play
ZyXEL PoE switches support IEEE 802.3af and IEEE 802.3at standards so users can deploy normal or high-power PDs flexibly without additional settings. ZyXEL PoE switches provide complete portfolio from 8 to 48 ports and allow connections for both 15.4-watt IEEE 802.3af devices and 30-watt IEEE 802.3at devices without power-socket restriction to provide high-speed transmissions at the same time.

Intelligent PoE technology
The intelligent PoE technology enables more efficient use of power resources to deliver better ROI for businesses. In the Consumption Mode, the PoE switch automatically detects power consumption status of each PD and supplies only the required amount of power. This intelligent power allocation function minimizes the waste of power and helps businesses to save money while enabling the PoE switch to power more PDs.

Power supply policy
ZyXEL PoE switches can monitor individual and total power consumption levels and set power supply policies that maximize service availability. Users can assign certain ports to prioritized PDs to prevent system interruption due to the exceeded power budget from all PDs. The ZyXEL PoE switch is capable of adjusting power classification of the PD according to the power supply policy to make sure PDs function well and to offer businesses with a reliable PoE solution.
