Efficient, Productive Gigabit Solutions for Evolving Access Networks
Non-blocking GbE performance for modern access networks
The ZyXEL GS2200 Series incorporates a high-performance switching architecture that provides 20/56/100 Gbps non-blocking switch fabric, 14.9/41.7/74.4 million packets per-second forwarding rate and wire-speed performance to connect high performance desktop devices with resources at the heart of the network. For branch offices and SME users, the GS2200 Series enables the delivery of converged applications and adapts to changing business needs with flexible configurations.
Secure, enhanced management functionality
The GS2200 Series is easy to use and manage for applications needed to support business operations as well as to increase productivity. The CPU protection feature can greatly reduce the likelihood of malfunctions. ZyXEL iStacking™ clustering management technology can manage devices across different floors and routing domains to locate other iStacking-capable switches in the same management cluster. This allows administrators to manage up to 24 switches with one single IP address. ZyXEL iStacking™ greatly reduces operating costs and offers more flexible maintenance of ZyXEL Switches. IT staff can opt for the Web or command line interface to suit their needs, and even encrypt their instructions with SSHv1/v2 and SSL. With these sophisticated functionalities, the IT staff is empowered to build a highly secure and efficient corporate network with minimum effort.
Rich IPv6 and other features built-in for future-proof network expansions
ZyXEL considers IPv6 management features as future trend, and therefore added complete IPv6 management capability to the 8/24-port GS2200. The great features are not only beneficial for high-density Gigabit Ethernet deployments, but also perfectly suitable for both network cores and edges.Besides, the GS2200 Series provides rich features including VLANs, CoS/QoS, Port Trunking, Rapid Spanning Tree, Security (Port Security and 802.1X authentication) and network management to meet evolving SME requirements. Meanwhile, the GS2200 Series delivers one of the most cost-effective Gigabit Ethernet solutions to empower Gigabit converged networking for branch offices and SMEusers.
Intelligent PoE for cost saving (GS2200-8HP/24P)
ZyXEL’s Intelligent PoE features provide two power supply modes:
- Classification Mode: the switch reserves the maximum power (W) to each powered device (PD) according to the priority levels.
- Consumption Mode: the switch manages the entire power supply, so each connected PD gets the actual power it needs. In the Consumption Mode, ZyXEL’s intelligent PoE, GS2200-8HP/24P will reserve the required power automatically, and you can set power feeding priorities on different ports to get the best use of power resource. This capability can increase the number of devices connected and deliver a better ROI for the business.
The GS2200-8HP provides 180 W of total budget power to port 1-4 with 30W each and to 5-8 with 15.4W each; this is sufficient for full loading to support all needs. Besides, the GS2200-24P provides a total budget power up to 220 W. With the PPS250 external PoE power supply, the GS2200-24P can provide 15.4 W per port to 24 PoE ports simultaneously.
