The environment-aware ZyXEL ES1100 Ser\ies offers 10/100 Mbps Ethernet speeds that is critical to next-generation network applications. It also provides power-saving functions to reduce energy consumption for lowered operating costs.
Traffic detection - IEEE Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) compliance (ES1100-8P/16P/16/24E/24): The IEEE Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) feature automatically detects network traffic and adjusts power consumption dynamically, enabling the switch to reduce power consumption during low link utilization periods.
Inactive link detection: The inactive link detection function automatically reduces power usage when inactive links or devices are detected. The ZyXEL ES1100 Series can adjust power consumption according to link status and the number of active network devices.
Cable length detection: This green feature enables the switch to automatically detect the length of connected Ethernet cables and adjust power usage accordingly. The shorter the cable length, the less power it consumes.
Best-in-class solution for Fast Ethernet environments : The ES1100 Series comprises of unmanaged Fast Ethernet switches that provide an inexpensive solution for Fast Ethernet connections to the desktop with outstanding performance. The ES1100 Series is an ideal solution for bandwidth-intensive applications such as high-resolution photo delivery, video/audio streaming and downloading as well as server farm connections.
Better performance and efficiency : The full ES1100 range of Fast Ethernet switches have been designed to boost your network performance and efficiency. With N-way auto-negotiation, the ES1100 Series connects to network counterparts with the highest possible data speed and activates duplex mode automatically.
Transmission reliability : Unlike shared 10/100 Mbps networks, dedicated bandwidth is provided by the ZyXEL ES1100 Series to eliminate traffic congestion. With the duplex mode, the ES1100 Series can also double the effective bandwidth by enabling two-way communication. The store-and-forward service brings low latency and error-free packet delivery, while the plug-and-play and multiple network protocol compatibility of the ES1100 Series make installation and management easier and faster than ever.
