Introducing High-Performance Zyxel Switches



Switches provide Service Providers with the platforms critical for their Core, Edge, and Cloud Internet Services, ensuring customer satisfaction and operational excellence.

Reasons why switches are crucial for service providers:

  1. Network Optimization
    With the evolution of switching technologies and the ability to support networking features such as Quality of Service (QoS), switches are no longer simple Layer 2 packet forwarding devices but a highly flexible, multi-featured network platform. 

  2. Cost Savings

    Switches provide a more optimized, cost-effective option for operators vs. Routers on a per-port basis.  From a Service Provider’s Core to Edge, switches can fulfill all Layer 2 networking requirements and if Layer 3 functionality is required, many of today’s switches have this option integrated as an offering eliminating the need for a more expensive router.

  3. Flexibility and Scalability

    Switches provide a very flexible option for Service Providers and ISPs.  From small unmanaged switches to multi-port managed switches with options such as Power over Ethernet (POE) and Layer 3, switches can support a wide array of deployment requirements.  Switches also allow smooth network growth and expansion whether managed or unmanaged.  

  4. Security

    Switches enhance network security by providing features like VLANs to isolate sensitive data and support port security to prevent unauthorized access. Options such as Access Control Lists (ACL), and port locking can help to make local networks secure from unauthorized access.

  5. Traffic management

    The switches prioritize packet traffic, which is crucial for maintaining Quality of Service (QoS) for bandwidth-intensive applications like streaming video or prioritization such as data vs. control plane traffic.  Switches also provide options such as multicast rate limiting to protect your switch and network traffic.
