Smart Managed Switches for Desktop Gigabit Connectivity.nnThe ZyXEL GS1900 Series of 8/16/24-port GbE Smart Managed Switch with Gigabit speed and essential managing functions bring your business network more flexibility and connectivity, the 1900 Series consists of four (4) models – the GS1900-8, GS1900-8HP, GS1900-16 and GS1900-24E. Providing GbE to desktop switches with power-saving functions, fanless design and full IPv6 support ensure your network to be ready for future expansions. In addition, the 8-port GS1900-8HP Gigabit switch complies with the IEEE 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) Plus standard. The complete GS1900 Series has been designed with useful features and advanced performances that empower your networks with speed and security as well as silent operation in your office environments.nnVersatility and flexibility for different needs.nnThe complete ZyXEL GS1900 Series has an essential portfolio of 8/16/24-port desktop models with compact size and GbE connectivity. All models support multiple deployment methods to fulfill the needs for small offices and meeting room environments such as wall-, under table- or desktop-mounting options. It’s now quick and effortless to enjoy the high-speed business network applications without a hitch.nnThe GS1900-8HP features IEEE 802.3at PoE Plus provide 8 PoE ports with up to 30 W powers per port to flexibly extend network deployment, especially for high-power devices such as Wi-Fi APs, IP cams and IP phones. The 802.3at PoE Plus capability makes the switch ideal for connecting numerous powered devices to form a flawless business network.nnSimple, intuitive wizard set up.nnFor small businesses that want to manage their infrastructure in advance, the ZyXEL GS1900 Series comes with a friendly built-in Web-based browser for simple configuration and management. Moreover, the friendly step-by-step intuitive wizard helps avoiding multiple complicated configuration pages for quick set up with few clicks in the matter of minutes. To guide the users from start-up, VLAN, Guest VLAN to QoS setting, the complex steps have been combined into four quick individual steps; which does not just save deployment time and efforts, but is also helpful especially for the non-IT staff.nnAvoiding network errors with easy management.nnThe ZyXEL GS1900 Series is equipped with advanced management features to make the network stable and secure: loop protection that prevents network flooding, dual images to provide a backup FW if one crashes and storm control to ensure network efficiency, friendly on/off DoS with simple click to enable/disable instead of several setup pages, while SSL ensures the management frames are well encrypted when the device is accessed. The GS1900 Series provides network error prevention features and integrated network security for reduced risk and improved data streaming.nnEnergy saving for IEEE 802.3az.nnAs operating overheads such as electric bills increase constantly due to the arising green awareness, businesses have to avoid unnecessary energy waste. The built-in IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and more ZyXEL innovative green features of ZyXEL GS1900 Series can reduce energy consumption of Ethernet devices through multiple intelligent ways.nn- Traffic detection — Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) compliance.nnThe IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) feature automatically detects network traffic and adjusts power consumption dynamically, as such the switch can reduce power consumption during low link utilization periods.nn- Inactive link detection.nnThe inactive link detection function automatically reduces power usage when inactive links or devices are detected. The ZyXEL GS1900 Series can adjust power consumption according to the link status and number of the active network devices.nn- Cable length detection.nnThis green feature enables the switch to automatically detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes.nnIntelligence to power more devices (GS1900-8HP).nnZyXEL’s Intelligent PoE feature provides two PoE supply modes: classification mode and consumption mode. Especially in consumption mode, the GS1900-8HP reserves the actual required power automatically, and you can set power feeding priorities on different ports to get the optimized use of power resource. This capability increases the number of devices connected and deliver a better ROI for the business. In addition, the GS1900-8HP supports the IEEE 802.3at standard on all 8 ports, providing a maximum of 30 watts per port, total 70 watts, for high power consuming devices.
