The ZyXEL GS1100-8HP offers environmental efficiency with Gigabit Ethernet speeds critical for next-generation network applications. To comply with the IEEE 802.3az standard, the GS1100-8HP provides power saving functions to reduce energy consumption to help business save cost.
Since the fanless design ensures quiet operation in small office spaces, the GS1100-8HP is the perfect solution for small business and SOHO office deployments.
Gigabit to the desktop
The GS1100-8HP comprises of unmanaged Gigabit switches that provide an inexpensive desktop Gigabit solution for significant performance boost thanks to the higher network bandwidth. The GS1100-8HP desktop switch is also a wall-mountable enclosure design, 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 GS1100-8HP filters and forwards packets at wire speed for maximum throughput. Features such as address learning and aging, 802.3x flow control adjust traffic congestion and ensure reliable data transmission. The GS1100-8HP also supports jumbo frames of up to 9K bytes for extra large transfers.
The GS1100-8HP offers plug-and-play connectivity and easy installation. With the Auto-MDI/MDI-X feature, it 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.
Freedom of installation via PoE
The GS1100-8HP supports the IEEE 802.3at PoE plus standard to ease the installation of network devices in challenging spaces such as ceilings or walls. The power supply of up to 30 watts per port allows the GS1100-8HP to power PoE-enabled WLAN APs, VoIP phones and IP surveillance cameras through CAT-5 cables of less than 100 metres in length. With the ZyXEL GS1100-8HP, there is no need for extra power adapters in installing PoE devices in difficult locations. This feature helps enterprises reduce installation time and cost when there are many such devices on the network.
The GS1100 Series not only offers Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for next-generation network applications, but also power-saving functions for better energy efficiency. Capable of dynamically adjusting power output according to traffic, active links and cable length, the GS1100 Series can reduce energy consumption for lowered operating costs.
