The ZyXEL Gigabit Switch 1500 Series currently consists of one switch: the ZyXEL GS1500-24P. The Switch 1500 Series with advanced Web-based management support is specially designed for SME networks where large bandwidth, advanced QoS and security features are required. Through the Web GUI interface, users can implement rich network management with ease.
The ZyXEL GS1500-24P is a 24-port L2 Gigabit PoE switch providing 24 100/1000Mbps ports with Layer-2 switching capability at wire speed over the existing CAT-5 cablings to customers' desktop with power budget support (following IEEE802.3af). In addition, the GS1500-24P offers four extra GbE ports (RJ-45 shared with GbE SFP open slots) capable of adopting GbE SFP transceivers for optional fiber connectivity.
Robust System Design Fits Any Network To cope with diverse requirements of branch offices or SME businesses, the ZyXEL GS1500-24P Switch comes with 24 Gigabit PoE copper ports plus 4 dual-personality (RJ-45/SFP) Gigabit ports to provide a 52Gbps non-blocking connection for branches or SME networks. This flexible multi-function design fits into any network easily.
Smart Interface for Easy Configuration and Management The ZyXEL GS1500-24P Switch provides stress-free operation for branch offices or SME networks. Through the Web-based interface, switch configurations such as 802.1Q VLAN, 802.1p traffic priority and static port aggregation can be implemented locally or remotely for easy administration; even people who are not IT experts can setup and configure the switch with just a few mouse clicks. The versatility and easy operation can really help enterprises to manage their networks easily.
Freedom of Installation by Power over Ethernet The ZyXEL GS1500-24P supports IEEE802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) to ease installation in challenging spaces such as ceiling or wall mounting. It works with devices such as WLAN AP, VoIP phones and IP surveillance cameras that can be powered by Ethernet connectivity over CAT-5 cables less than 100 meters in length; so there is no need for extra power adapters, and powering the devices installed on the ceiling is no longer a headache. This feature helps enterprises to reduce installation time and cost when many new devices are needed.
Intelligent PoE for Cost Savings 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 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.
