Businesses can select the solution with just the right features and performance to match their needs. The ZLD3.0 firmware upgrade makes all existing and new USG series devices IPv6-compliant.
ZyXEL carrier-grade GS2200 series of 24- and 48-port high-density managed Ethernet switches offers SMBs a gigabit switching solution with the best features-per-dollar ratio in the industry. Plus, the new ZyNOS 4.0 free software upgrade includes IPv6 support and makes the GS2200 series even harder to beat. The solution includes a non-blocking 56 Gbps switching fabric for wire-speed performance and four dual personality slots for deployment flexibility with copper or fiber uplink for long loop reach applications. Featuring the latest VLAN, traffic prioritization and management features, ZyXEL’s switches offer SMBs a stable and reliable network for running mission-critical applications.
ZyXEL’s dual-stack IPv6 implementation approach across its product line allows businesses to operate both IPv4 and IPv6 devices on their network, offering maximum migration flexibility.
