Zyxel GS1915-8 8-port GbE Smart Managed Switch and GS1915-8EP 8-port GbE Smart Managed PoE Switch carry limited lifetime warranties.

GS1915 series switches support NebulaFlex, offering enough flexibility by managing the switches using Zyxel’s Nebula cloud-based management platform called SNMP or web-based GUI. GS1915 switches each feature eight RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and a fanless design.

Zyxel’s Nebula platform provides real-time network information and provides centrally-managed control over GS1915 Smart Managed switches and connected access points and security gateways. Nebula enables streamlined installation and management of the network without the additional costs of a software or hardware controller.

NebulaFlex provides flexibility in management options by giving users the ability to manage GS1915 Smart Managed switches via the cloud using the license-free Nebula cloud management platform, via an existing controller using SNMP, or locally using the intuitive web GUI.

Eight gigabit Ethernet ports provide 16Gbps switching capacity to ensure high-speed connectivity for critical applications such as video conferencing, VoIP and IoT devices in homes, small businesses and chain stores.

All eight ports of GS1915-8EP support IEEE 802.3at for maximum deployment of PoE devices. With a total power budget of 60W and the ability to deliver up to 30W to each port, GS1915-8EP features a default PoE consumption mode that delivers only the actual power required by connected devices.

Tri Nguyen, Market Development Manager at Zyxel, said: “GS1915 series switches deliver a critical balance of performance, affordability and flexibility that makes them ideal solutions for expanding or upgrading existing networks.”
