The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
ES-2108 8-port L2 Fast Ethernet Switch
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
A switch is a device with which it is possible to connect computers into a (local area) network, provided your computers all have an appropriate networking device installed. Switches can be daisy chained to form larger networks and come in managed and unmanaged variaties. The unmanaged versions generally cannot filter data and will forward any data that is fed into them, so they are better suited for small networks. Switches are easy to set up (just plug in the network cables) and allow you to share printers, storage space and other network resources with your entire home or office network.

Complete Product portfolio for various demand
The ES-2108 Managed Layer 2 Fast Ethernet Switch series is specially designed for small workgroup environments. Exception of ES-2108PWR, fan-less design eliminates annoying noise, which makes suitable for noise-intolerant environments.

ES-2108 series includes four models: ES-2108, ES-2108-G, ES-2108-LC and ES-2108PWR.
All switches equip with a non-blocking 5.6 Gbps switching architecture for wire-speed transmission capability. Besides default 8 10/100Mbps port, ES-2108-G features one dual personality Gigabit upper link port for flexible deployment and long-range connectivity. ES-2108PWR is based on ES-2108-G with extra support of PoE feature for Fast Ethernet ports. As ES-2108-LC, it features with one 100FX and one SFP open slot gigabit interface for fiber uplink.

Superior Capability for Diverse Missions
ZyXEL ES-2108 series are designed to serve diverse applications in various networking environments. For quality of service application, the ES-2108 series comes with 4 priority queues per port for different types of traffics. In addition, DSCP is supported as well to realize an end-to-end QoS environment. Regarding of IP multicasting applications, ES-2108 series features IGMP snooping to optimize the service quality. Also in bandwidth management, ES-2108 series can support increment of 64Kbps to fulfill bandwidth differentiation.

High-Security Network Edge
The ZyXEL ES-2108 series features VLAN function to secure your network: 802.1Q tagged VLAN and port-based VLAN. With 4K PVID, you get freedom in VLAN management. In addition, the support of MAC filtering, MAC freezing and Specific MAC forwarding, the ES-2108 series allows network administrator to set security policy based on device MAC address. Intrusion lock, a feature that disables a port when an Ethernet cable is disconnected, prevents intruders from accessing the network through the switch. Equipped with feature 802.1x authentications, it restricts unauthorized users from accessing your network and obtaining confidential data. The ES-2108 series is designed to offer comprehensive security features for enforcing security policies to the edge.

Management features
Switch type*
What switch device has, managed or unmanaged.
Switch layer
A network switch is a computer networking device that links networking segments. A switch has different layers, such as layer 2 (a network bridge, operating at the data link layer, interconnecting a small number of devices) and layer 4 (can act as a firewall, amongst other things).
Quality of Service (QoS) support
Ports & interfaces
Basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports quantity*
The number of basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports (sockets).
Networking standards*
The way in which the network is working, e.g. IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g.
IEEE 802.1d, IEEE 802.1p, IEEE 802.1Q, IEEE 802.1w, IEEE 802.1x, IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3ad, IEEE 802.3u, IEEE 802.3x
Full duplex
A full-duplex system allows communication in both directions, and unlike half-duplex, allows this to happen simultaneously.
Flow control support
Link aggregation
Port mirroring
Data transmission
MAC address table*
The MAC address is the 'Media Access Control Address'. It is a unique address given to a network interface controller (NIC) in a device. A MAC address table shows the addresses in a table format.
8000 entries
Maximum data transfer rate
0.1 Gbit/s
MAC address filtering
Security access control method whereby the 48-bit address assigned to each network card is used to determine access to the network. MAC addresses are uniquely assigned to each card, so using MAC filtering on a network permits and denies network access to specific devices through the use of blacklists and whitelists.
Power consumption (typical) *
Amount of power consumed by this model, often expressed in watts (W). Typical values that manufacturers give are power consumption when off, standby/suspended mode, typical use, maximum usage.
10 W
Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Power over Ethernet (PoE) *
The device supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), which is one of several standardized or ad-hoc systems which pass electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices such as wireless access points or IP cameras.
