The ZyXEL GS1100-16 is positioned to deliver a solution that requires no switch management for office environments demanding silent operation and green technology. It provides plug-and-play simplicity for high-bandwidth connectivity.
The GS1100-16 is a 16-port 10/100/1000 switch and protects your existing network investments while providing you with a straightforward migration path to faster Gigabit speeds.
IEEE Energy-Efficient-Ethernet (EEE) compliance:
The ZyXEL GS1100-16 offers environmental efficiency with Gigabit Ethernet speeds critical for next-generation network applications. To comply with the IEEE802.3az standard, the GS1100-16 provides power saving functions to reduce energy consumption to help business save cost.
Inactive link detection:
The power usage adjustment feature automatically reduces power usage when any shut down network device or inactive link is detected. That is, power consumption of the Series can be adjusted according to the link status or the number of active network devices when possible.
Cable length detection:
The devices equipped with this green feature can automatically detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes.
Since the fanless design ensures quiet operation in small office spaces, the GS1100-16 is the perfect solution for small business and SOHO office deployments.
Gigabit to the desktop:
The GS1100-16 comprises of unmanaged Gigabit switches that provide an inexpensive desktop Gigabit solution for significant performance boost thanks to the higher network bandwidth. The GS1100-16 comes in desktop, wall-mountable or rack-mountable enclosure design 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 GS1100-16 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 GS1100-16 also supports jumbo frames of up to 9k bytes for extra large transfers.
The GS1100-16 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.
