ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home and routing products, today introduced a new series of web managed 24 and 48 port 10G switches (XGS1910) and gigabit switches (GS1910). Aimed at small to mid-size businesses, the affordable, web-based series offers high throughput and sophisticated features like network performance and security management.
The increasing demand among SMBs for cloud-based services and applications like VoIP, video streaming, teleconferencing and surveillance is driving the need for networks with higher speeds. ZyXEL's economical, high-performance XGS1910 and GS1910 switches meet this requirement, delivering the necessary gigabit bandwidth to desktops for provisioning all these applications.
The newly launched series include 24 and 48 port 10G Web smart switches (XGS1910-24/48), 24 and 48 port gigabit Web smart switches with high power PoE (GS1910-24HP / 48HP) and without high power (GS1910-24 / 48). Some of the main features common to the series include:
- Outstanding performance and efficiency in network traffic management
- QoS (Quality of Service)
- Variety of VLAN features such as MAC (Media Access Control), protocol-based VLAN and guest VLAN
- Security management
- IPv6-ready to prepare businesses for migration to the new Internet
- IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) to reduce energy consumption of Ethernet devices by defining low-power modes and adjusting the operating timeframe
"ZyXEL's new switches deliver a cost and performance breakthrough to small-and medium-size businesses, as well as the education and hospitality markets," said Steven Joe, executive vice president of channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "We're providing affordable, energy-efficient, IPv6-ready, web-managed switches with the richest L2 features available to meet our customer's current and future mobility and cloud computing demands."
The XGS1910-24 (48) switch comes with 2 (4) enhanced small form-factor SFP+ ports for 10G uplinks and / or stacking. This cost-saving feature eliminates the need for additional modules for 10G support. The HP designation for the GS1910-24HP / 48HP represents "High Powered" for 30W power IEEE 802.3at feature support. These HP switches can power devices such as motorized IP cameras with pan / tilt / zoom functions that use more than 15.4W. ZyXEL HP switches are backward compatible with 802.3af PoE standard devices as well.
