ZyXEL Introduces Series of Web-Managed, Smart Ethernet Switches

The GS1900 series of switches are designed to simplify networking for solution providers and businesses. By Channel Pro

ZyXEL Communications has introduced the GS1900 series of Web-managed, smart Ethernet switches. The series includes 8-, 16-, and 24-port switches with gigabit speed, PoE+ support (GS1900-8HP, GS1900-24HP and GS1900-48HP), a network error-prevention mechanism, green features, and easy browser-based management for a variety of business applications.

The ZyXEL GS1900 series of smart switches come equipped with a Web wizard to simplify complex configuration processes, providing easy set-up for features like VLAN provisioning, Guest VLAN, and QoS settings. The 8-, 16-, and 24-port versions come in a fanless design for quiet operation. In addition, the new switches offer stable and secure operation with multiple error prevention functions, such as storm control, loop protection, dual images, DoS, and SSL. The GS1900 series also eliminates complicated setting procedures by consolidating them within an on/off switch in its Web-based GUI.

8-, 24-, and 48-Port PoE+ Option
The 8-port GS1900-8HP, 24-port GS1900-24HP, and 48-port GS1900-48HP with IEEE 802.3at PoE+ offers businesses PoE ports with up to 30W power per port to deploy high-powered devices such as Wi-Fi access points, surveillance cameras, and IP phones. These PoE switches also provide two PoE modes: classification mode and consumption mode. In consumption mode, the switch reserves the actual required power automatically, and users can set power consumption priorities on different ports to optimize use of power resources. This capability increases the number of devices connected and delivers a better ROI.
