ZyXEL UK Announces Value-added Gigabit GS1510 Web-managed Switch Series for Small Businesses

Energy Efficient and Easy Management Fulfill Small Businesses’ Need for Low Operating Costs

December 09, 2010

ZyXEL Communications UK, the world’s leading broadband access solutions provider today announced that it has expanded its Gigabit Web-managed switch Series by providing comprehensive security and user-friendly features that specifically fulfill the needs of small businesses and SOHO – without complex admin or maintenance overhead.

Independent operation empowered by intelligent management is a key requirement for small businesses The GS1510 Series (GS1510-16, GS1510-24) provides small businesses with the technologies and applications that can be found in complex corporate-level networks but with greatly reduced administration, implementation and maintenance time.

Security is one of the most important issues for small businesses deploying a network, however, the additional cost and complexity that comes with this security can be a prohibitive barrier. To ease this concern, the GS1510 Series not only supports 802.1X port-based authentication that allows the network to be authenticated through external RADIUS servers, but it also enables web authentication with the built-in RADIUS server of ZyXEL’s NWA3000 AP Series  This reduces the complexity of additional servers and avoids the usual, extra cost and complexity for security investment.

The GS1510 Series has environmental awareness, along with Gigabit Ethernet speeds, critical for next-generation network applications. It provides power-saving functions to reduce energy consumption that help businesses decrease energy costs without sacrificing operational performance and functionality.

The traffic detection feature of GS1510 Series automatically detects network traffic and dynamically adjusts power consumption accordingly. It reduces power consumption during periods of low-link utilization. Also, the device is equipped with a green feature which can automatically detect the length of connected Ethernet cables - the shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes. Featuring a fanless design, the GS1510 series ensures a quieter environment and less heat dissipation, to offer energy and cost-saving properties without affecting its overall, optimum performance, making it the ideal solution for growing businesses and operators.
 
With the auto MDI/MDI-X feature, the GS1510 Series eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch. Through SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and the Web-Based GUI, it provides two modes: the Smart Mode and Advanced Mode, that enable small businesses to quickly set up the features. In addition, the device provides Auto-Discovery Tool to help the network administrator locate the IP address easily.
