The GS1100 16-Port Gigabit Rackmountable Unmanaged Switch from ZyXEL is designed to deliver a solution that requires no switch management for office environments demanding fanless silent operation and green technology. It provides plug-and-play simplicity for high-bandwidth connectivity. The switch protects your existing network investments while providing you with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit speeds. It supports non-blocking wire-speed transmission and is IEEE 802.3az compliant..
The Auto MDI/MDI-X feature eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub. In addition, the Auto-negotiation feature senses the link speed of a network device and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance. It also supports jumbo frames of up to 9KB for extra large transfers.
IEEE Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) Compliance
The switch offers environmental efficiency with Gigabit Ethernet speeds critical for next-generation network applications. It complies with the IEEE 802.3az standard by providing power-saving functions to reduce energy consumption.
Inactive Link Detection
The power usage adjustment feature automatically reduces power usage when any shutdown network device or inactive link is detected. In other words, power consumption of the switch can be adjusted according to the link status or the number of active network devices when possible.
Cable Length Detection
The device is equipped with this green feature which can automatically detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes.
The switch is a perfect solution for small business and SOHO office deployments with fanless design that ensures quiet operation in small office spaces.
Desktop Gigabit Solution
The switch comprises of unmanaged Gigabit switches that provide an inexpensive desktop Gigabit solution for significant performance boost. In addition, it offers copper lines and comes in a desktop, wall-mountable, or rack-mountable enclosure design. The flexible connection options enable the switches to easily fit different applications and environments. The switch is an ideal solution for bandwidth intensive applications, such as high-resolution photo transmission, video/audio streaming, and downloading as well as server farm connections.
With the non-blocking switching architecture, the switch filters and forwards packets at wire speed for maximum throughput. Features such as Address learning and aging as well as 802.3x flow control adjust traffic congestion and ensure reliable data transmission. The switch also supports jumbo frames of up to 9KB for extra large transfers.
The switch offers plug-and-play connectivity and easy installation. The Auto MDI/MDI-X feature eliminates the need for crossover cables when connecting to another switch or hub; the Auto-negotiation feature senses the link speed of a network device and intelligently adjusts for compatibility and optimal performance.
