ExtraSmart Switch Delivers Auto DoS Prevention and Auto VoIP to SMB.SB Networks

Used to be you had two choices when purchasing a switch; you either got something simple to use, but with no advanced features, or advanced features but with a complex and technical interface. With ZyXEL's 1500 series of switches, we've created a perfect combination of advanced features combined with a simple interface. Never before has it been so easy to configure VLAN's, VoIP Quality of Service, or network security. ZyXEL's Web Managed 1500 series come in both Fast & Gigabit speeds with up to 48 LAN ports plus uplinks.

* Advanced features with a simplified interface makes configuration a snap
o Auto DoS Attack Prevention & Auto VoIP
* 17.6 Gbps Non-blocking Switching Fabric for the fastest speeds
* Flexible 4 GbE Uplink Interfaces provide maxium speed between switches

Robust Design Powers SMB/SB Networks
ZyXEL ES-1552 comes with 48 Fast Ethernet copper ports plus four Gigabit uplinks (two 1000Base-T ports and two SFP slots) that fire up the non-blocking connection power to 17.6Gbps on SMB/SB networks, and its multi-function design fits into copper or fiber networks easily. By utilizing 4G uplinks and port aggregation, bandwidth on critical paths can be expanded flexibly by merging multiple traffic pipelines into a logical one to dramatically improve network stability.

ExtraSmart™ Evolution New Smart Power
While many legacy Web Smart switches improve manageability, complexity is still a challenge. For most SMBs, inadequate IT expertise and complicated configurations are the major obstacles to overcome before getting connected. Powered by the newest hardware platform with smart ACL technology, "Auto DoS Attack Prevention" and "Auto VoIP" provides hassle-free operations required by a network with strict security protection and VoIP-friendliness.
In addition, the ZyXEL ES-1552 comes with a streamlined and intuitive Web-GUI for features demanded by SMB; such as 802.1Q VLAN, 802.1p traffic priority and static port aggregation. Requiring no awkward configurations or bulky user guide, the ES-1552 provides valuable features and convenience for SMBs.

Extra Secure - Auto DoS Attack Prevention
ZyXEL is highly aware that network security is a top priority for SMBs and has therefore enabled the ES1552 to effectively combat DoS attacks. Equipped with Auto DoS Attack Prevention, the ES-1552 is capable of fighting against ubiquitous DoS attacks. A few mouse clicks is all it takes to initiate protection, handling the once-complicated ACL setting and dramatically reducing operational issues. Operating efforts dramatically. ES-1552 supports 802.1Q VLAN for traffic isolation, as well as static MAC forwarding and dynamic ARP to establish a strictly protected network.

Extra QoS – Auto VoIP Optimization
VoIP is a key to differentiate business competitiveness. It usually requires IT expertise to optimize a network for VoIP applications. With the emergence of the "Auto VoIP", however, the ES-1552 can identify VoIP packet patterns and grant the highest priority to establish a VoIP-friendly communication automatically.

Auto VoIP offers IP telephony without configuration headaches. Features like four priority queues and a WFQ scheduling algorithm allows users to optimize network bandwidth usage and Quality of Services. In terms of bandwidth management, users can choose from several options and pick the most appropriate with just a mouse click.
