Manufacturer:
Level:
L2
Number of ports:
8

The ZyXEL ES-2108 Series is the managed Layer-2 Switch specially designed for SME, campus or small workgroup environments. It's fully featured to empower high multi-task performance in today's dynamic networks requiring security, QoS and management capabilities. The complete product portfolio with optimized port configuration and Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality brings easy solutions to any network in need.

The ES-2108 Series comes in three models: ES-2108, ES-2108-G and ES-2108PWR. The ES-2108 Series delivers 8 port 10/100Base-TX, 10/100 PoE Base-TX and one GbE dual-personality on ES-2108-G and ES-2108PWR.

Intelligent traffic prioritization for multiple services

Multiple priority queues and scheduling mechanism make the ES-2108 Series easy to perform traffic prioritizing for delay-service applications, and you can also customize DSCP settings to provide an end-to-end QoS environment. The MVR ensures efficient transmission of multicasting stream on the network-wide multicast VLAN. For bandwidth management, the ES-2108 Series supports bandwidth increments to give different bandwidth allocations. With broadcast storm control, the network keeps the broadcast packets below the pre-defined threshold to prevent network outrages.

High-Security network edge

The ES-2108 Series features wide-range security functions to prevent unauthorized data access. The 256 Static VLAN entry enables complicated VLANs portfolio for policy management, and the full-range 4K VLAN (4K PVID) is equipped as well. In addition to 802.1x central access authentication, it further assigns VLAN and bandwidth per pre-defined attribution for valid users to add flexibility to network management. In addition, extra support of MAC filtering, MAC freezing and Specific MAC forwarding allow network administrators to set security policies toward the device MAC addresses. The ES-2108 Series has been designed to offer comprehensive security features for enforcing security policies to the edge.

Excellent network management capability

The ES-2108 Series comes with rich management tools to streamline your management effort. With ZyXEL's exclusive iStacking™ technology, you can manage up to 24 ZyXEL switches through one IP address. In addition, through Web-GUI, CLI (Command Line Interface) and text-based configuration, network managers can select the one management interface they are most comfortable with to get the job done efficiently. Moreover, you can protect your management session with SSHv1/v2 authentication and SSL encryption features. With the comprehensive features, ZyXEL's ES-2108 Series is your first choice for cost-effective networking.
