ZyXEL Launches Power Over Ethernet Switches

ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home and routing products, today introduced the ES1100-8HP-240W and GS1100-8HP-240W, a high-performing Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) switch and a Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch respectively.

The two eight-port devices are high-speed, require no set-up and offer instant connectivity to Wi-Fi Access Points (APs), security cameras, VoIP phones and other devices that need flexible deployments with direct access to power sources in office environments.

Both devices are plug-and-play, requiring no configuration. The eight ports are fast Ethernet on the ES1100-8HP-240W and gigabit on the GS1100-8HP-240W.

Each of the eight ports delivers an industry-leading 30 watts of power
sufficient to power a variety of the latest PoE+ devices. This is a
competitive differentiator as most competing PoE+ switches support PoE+ for only half their ports, requiring businesses to purchase extra equipment and incur additional expense. The new switches from ZyXEL are compliant with IEEE 802.3-Base-T/802.3u100Base-T and IEEE802.3af/802.3 at standards and
fully compatible with each standard.

Price and Availability
The ES1100-8HP-240W and the GS1100-8HP-240W are currently available from all
major e-commerce sites and ZyXEL partners. Both models are covered by a
two-year warranty.
