Cost-effective solution for Gigabit migration
ZyXEL GS-1124A is a 24-port unmanaged gigabit switch providing a cost-effective solution to empower "Gigabit to the desktop" connectivity. This brings significant performance improvement with increased network bandwidth. In addition, the GS-1124A comes with two dual personality (RJ-45 or SFP open slot) interfaces. It offers flexible connectivity (copper or fiber) to adapt to different deployment environments. The GS-1124A is an ideal solution for bandwidth-hungry applications (such as high resolution digital image transmission, video/audio file streaming/downloading, and server farm connectivity).

Wire-speed Gigabit Engine to Accelerate the Transmission
With robust hardware design, the GS-1124A performs packet forwarding at wire-speeds, which can instantly transfer giant packets without performance degradation. In addition, with the support of 802.3x flow control, the GS-1124A guarantees smooth transmission by adjusting packet transmission to reduce congestion. IEEE802.1p CoS allows the switch to send packets based on the priority level. In addition, the GS-1124A supports jumbo frame transmission up to 10K bytes to improve transmission efficiency and network performance.

Hassle-free Installation and Usage
Connectivity can be as easy as connecting to a port on the switch. All the rest of the functions are done automatically. All ports on the GS-1124A are auto MDI/MDIX which means that you don't need to check the Ethernet cable type. In addition, auto-negotiation helps adjust link speed intelligently to reach the best link quality. The GS-1124A is rack mountable, allowing you to place it in a rack to save precious office space.
