The XGS-4526 offers complete Layer-3 features to make it the preferred choice for real routing networks in the enterprise. The XGS-4526 provides 20 1000Base-T ports, 4 Gigabit dual-personalities, and 1 open slot for the optional 10-Gigabit uplink port module, the XGS-4526 is ideal for small and medium enterprises seeking to build a high performance network.
The ZyXEL XGS-4526 provides wirespeed Layer-2 Gigabit switching of up to 144Gpbs, along with advanced Layer-3 switching, multicasting, resiliency including OSPF, DVMRP and VRRP for connectivity requirements. Its four flexible speeds - 10/100/1000Mbps and 10Gbps performance - also provide greater flexibility to the core networks or high-performance servers.
The ZyXEL XGS-4526 supports Intelligent QoS features to regulate network traffics for the best performance. Taking advantage of Class of Service (CoS) and Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) supports, administrators can easily classify and perform traffic prioritizing for critical business applications such as VoIP and video conferencing. In addition, the 4500 Series provides advanced bandwidth control with granularity of 64kbps and 8 hardware priority queues that bring better bandwidth administration to network operators.
The ZyXEL XGS-4526 supports the VRRP routing protocol for failover transmissions. The second DC power source, called BPS, protects the device from internal AC power supply failures, while the IEEE802.3ad Link aggregation reduces network downtime by providing more packet paths and bandwidth aggregation to critical paths. The Gigabit connectivity not only gives superb transmission bandwidth, but also allows users to set up Gigabit aggregation for securing critical transmission paths. The IEEE802.1w Rapid spanning tree (RSTP) also allows immediate recovery from failed links by sending packets via a backup link path.
