Carrier Gigabit Ethernet 

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) leverage XGS3700 series and XS3700-24’s versatile port configuration, and carrier-grade features like uninterruptable operation, redundancy, optimal routing and bandwidth management to deliver Active Ethernet based gigabit broadband services citywide, to high-rise hotels and condominiums  and apartment complexes.  The XS3700-24 acts as an aggregator switch – connecting to the XGS3700 series via 10G fiber connections. And the XGS3700 series can be deployed on the edge to deliver gigabit broadband connections over copper. In addition to performance and flexibility, the ZyXEL 10G switch portfolio offers an unmatched price point allowing ISPs to deploy affordable and profitable gigabit broadband services. 

US Internet - an ISP with presence in over 4,000 cities around the world, has always stayed ahead of the curve, offering gigabit broadband service since 2012.  They have deployed ZyXEL’s 10G and gigabit Ethernet switch solution to offer broadband services in Minneapolis. US Internet in now gearing up to offer 10 gigabit broadband services to customers. 

“We at US Internet take pride in being the first to deliver 10G broadband service in Minneapolis today. Our customers are demanding gigabit-fast Internet services and we want them to have all the options,” said Travis Carter, vice president of technology for US Internet. “ZyXEL has proven to be great vendor for us over the years, not just from a technology standpoint but also in helping us create profitable services and reducing support costs.”

Datacenter and Enterprise Gigabit Networks

The increased adoption of virtualization and cloud-based applications, video streaming, and IP surveillance by enterprises is driving the need for 10G switches. The XS3700-24, with the versatile combination of 10G BASE-T copper and SFX fiber ports, is ideally suited for core datacenter networks where it connects to server farms and also serves as a switch aggregator. While the XGS3700 series, with 4 SFP, 10G fiber ports and rest gigabit ports, offers a cost-effective solution to connect gigabit clients including laptops and 802.11ac WiFi APs back to a 10G core switch like the XS3700-24 via fiber uplink.

“ZyXEL’s 10G switch portfolio is designed for partners like US Internet who constantly push the envelope of technology by offering leading-edge services, and we’re thrilled to support them,” said Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. “Together, the XGS3700 series and the GS3700-24 offer solution providers a host of deployment options and enterprises an affordable transition path to an all 10G network.”
