ZyXEL Announces Intelligent Layer 2 Ethernet Switches for Converged Data, Video and Voice Applications

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ANAHEIM, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home and routing products, today announced its new GS2210 Series Gigabit Layer 2 Switches, which are ideal for converged networking. The fully managed Layer 2 switching solution provides advanced security, agile traffic control and intelligent PoE (Power over Ethernet), and is ideal for deployment in hospitality, healthcare, business and educational environments.

"The new G2210 series switches are an essential addition to ZyXEL's portfolio of carrier-grade Ethernet switches," said Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "The G2210 series provides businesses and solution providers a wider selection of powerful and affordable switches with a range of features to match their exact needs." Multicasting and IGMP SnoopingThe GS2210 Series boasts advanced L2 multicast and IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) snooping features to streamline bandwidth use for large IPTV, IP surveillance and IP phone applications in hospitality, healthcare, business and educational institutions. In the hotel environment, for example, the MVR (Multicast VLAN Registration) function ensures better network efficiency and security for hotel guests by allowing a single IPTV multicast VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) to be shared with all the set-top boxes while the subscribers remain in separate data VLANs.

Sophisticated QoSWith agile traffic-shaping capabilities combined with an extensive array of access and traffic security features, the ZyXEL GS2210 Series can segment networks and allocate different bandwidth privileges to different users. These features make the GS2210 series switches ideal for digital classroom applications where students and teachers use separate networks with different access rights. Advanced QoS (Quality of Service) and CoS (Class of Service) features can also reduce traffic congestion for latency-sensitive interactive learning applications.

SecurityThe ZyXEL GS2210 Series provides high-level network and access security by offering enhanced control and isolation. The advanced defense mechanisms include IP source guard that not only prevents IP address spoofing from unknown IP addresses, but also eliminates man-in-the-middle attacks.

Intelligent PoE The PoE support in the ZyXEL GS2210 Series switches make them an ideal candidate for applications like IP telephony, WLAN and IP surveillance. In addition, the switches automatically detect the power consumption status of each powered device, and only supply the requisite amount of power needed, thus reducing energy consumption and reducing operating costs for businesses.

Pricing and AvailabilityThe 48-port GS2210 series Ethernet switches are available now through authorized ZyXEL partners. The 24-port GS2210 will be available August-end.
