ZyXEL Launches High-Performance Power Over Ethernet Switches

All ports have 30W of power; the switches can be used to deploy Wi-Fi access points, VoIP phones, security cameras, and more.

ZyXEL Communications Corp., a provider of broadband networking, Internet access, connected home, and routing products, has introduced the ES1100-8HP-240W and GS1100-8HP-240W, a high-performing Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) switch and a Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch, respectively. The two eight-port devices are high-speed, require no set up, and offer instant connectivity to Wi-Fi Access Points (APs), security cameras, VoIP phones, and other devices that need flexible deployments with direct access to power sources in office environments.

Both devices are plug-and-play, requiring no configuration. The eight ports are fast Ethernet on the ES1100-8HP-240W and gigabit on the GS1100-8HP-240W. Each of the eight ports delivers 30 watts of power sufficient to power a variety of the latest PoE+ devices. (most PoE+ switches support PoE+ for only half their ports, requiring that businesses purchase extra equipment). The new switches from ZyXEL are compliant with IEEE 802.3-Base-T/802.3u100Base-T and IEEE802.3af/802.3at standards and fully compatible with each standard.

Both the ES1100-8HP-240W and the GS1100-8HP-240W feature auto learning of network configurations, an 8k Mac learning table with 2M bits buffer memory, non-blocking and non-head-of-line blocking full wire speed forwarding, support for Auto MDI-X, Flow Control, and broadcast storm control and store and forward operation.

The ES1100-8HP-240W and the GS1100-8HP-240W are the latest additions to ZyXEL’s line of high-performance switches for SMBs, which includes 24- and 48-port Web managed gigabit (GS1910 series) and 10G switches (XGS1910 series). Together these switches offer SMBs several alternatives for a robust network that is capable of handling applications like VoIP, video streaming, teleconferencing, and video surveillance.

The MSRP for the ES1100-8HP-240W is $309.99 and $319.99 for the GS1100-8HP-240W. Both models are covered by a two-year warranty.
