ZyXEL Communications has introduced Layer 2 10G and gigabit managed switches.
The new switches — priced between $899.99 and $1999.99 — come with enterprise-class features for uninterruptable operation, redundancy, optimal routing and bandwidth management and high power Power Over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) support.
ZyXEL on Tuesday said 3700 series includes a combination of 10G / gigabit, 24 / 48 ports, PoE+ / non-PoE switches that are suited to data centers and SMB core networks.
The 24 and 48 port XGS3700 series 10G switches come with four 10G SFP+ uplink ports for flexible copper or fiber deployments. The 10G ports can also be directly connected to virtual server and NAS / SAN storage devices using ZyXEL’s DAC10G SPF+ cables for facilitating bandwidth hungry applications.
The GS3700 series gigabit switches support four gigabit SFP ports. All 3700 series switches support IPv6 for future-ready networks.
“ZyXEL’s latest 3700 series switches are designed to help our channel partners equip SMBs with the bandwidth necessary to run mobile, virtual and cloud-based applications,” said Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL.
The ZyXEL XGS3700/GS3700 series features no single point of failure (NSPOF) hardware and software to provide the resiliency needed for non-stop business continuity.
Its high redundancy hardware architecture includes dual, internal power supplies, which not only ensures 100 percent uptime in the event of a power supply failure, but also save rack space compared to external power supplies.
Both the fan module and the power supply modules are hot-swappable to enable zero downtime troubleshooting.
ZyXEL XGS3700 and GS3700 series switches are currently available from all authorized sales channels.
