Anaheim, CA – ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, today announced the launch of its Aerobeam five- and eight-port gigabit, Audio Video (AV) Ethernet Switches specifically tuned for the home entertainment center. The Aerobeam AVS105 and AVS108 automatically prioritizes multimedia streams to ensure the best possible performance and content quality, taking the frustration out of connecting home entertainment devices and trying to figure out what device needs what priority.

The switches monitor traffic in real time, and are able to detect bandwidth and latency sensitive traffic such as SIP and streaming traffic and give them priority while passing through the switch.

The Aerobeam AV switches will make sure streaming traffic is not interrupted by web browsing or large file transfers happening at the same time.
