Gigabit Web Managed Switch Empowers "DoS Attack Preventive" and "VoIP Friendly" 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
* 48 Gbps Non-blocking Switching Fabric for the fastest speeds
* Flexible 4 GbE Uplink Interfaces provide maxium speed between switches

Robust System Design
ZyXEL GS-1524 is a 24-port L2 Gigabit switch with advanced Web-based management support, that has beenspecifically designed for SMB/Enterprise networks where extra bandwidth and advanced QoS or security features are required. To cope with the diverse requirements of SMB/Enterprise businesses, the ZyXEL GS-1524 Web-managed switch comes with 20 Gigabit copper ports plus 4 dual-personality (RJ-45/SFP) Gigabit ports to provide 48 Gbps of non-blocking connectivity for SB/SMB networks. With the flexible multi-function design, GS-1524 fits any network with very little effort.

Evolution New Managed Power
While many legacy Web-based Smart switches improve manageability, configuration complexity is still an issue; for most SMB/Enterprise, inadequate IT expertise and complicated configuration are the major concerns to overcome. Powered by the next-generation hardware platform with a content-aware engine, ZyXEL GS-1524 delivers stress-free networking. In addition, the streamlined and intuitive Web-GUI makes GS-1524 even easier to configure to slash the efforts needed.

Auto DoS Attack Prevention
Security has become increasingly important in SMB/Enterprise networks. Equipped with Auto DoS Attack Prevention, the GS-1524 is capable of protection against ubiquitous DoS attacks. A few mouse clicks are all it takes to initiate the protection, complete the once-complicated ACL setting and reduce operating efforts dramatically. The GS-1524 supports 802.1Q VLAN for traffic isolation, as well as Static MAC forwarding and dynamic ARP to establish a strictly protected network.

Auto VoIP Optimization
Migration to VoIP is the key to differentiate business competitiveness. It usually requires IT expertise to optimize a network for VoIP applications. With emergence of the "Auto VoIP" feature, however, the GS-1524 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 such as four priority queues and the WRR (Weighted Round Robin) scheduling algorithm are usually deployed on enterprise networks, allowing users to optimize network bandwidth usage and implement QoS (Quality of Service). In terms of bandwidth management and switch interconnections, users can choose from several options and pick the most appropriate with just a mouse click.
