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.
GS-1116A 16-port Unmanaged Gigabit 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.

Cost-effective solution for Gigabit migration
ZyXEL GS-1116A is a 16-port unmanaged gigabit switch providing a cost-effective solution to empower "Gigabit to the desktop" connectivity. This brings significant performance improvement with increased network bandwidth. In addition, the GS-1116A come with two dual personality (RJ-45 or SFP open slot) interfaces. It offers flexible connectivity (copper or fiber) to adapt to different deployment environments. The GS-1116A is an ideal solution for bandwidth-hungry applications (such as high resolution digital image transmission, video/audio file streaming/downloading, server farm connectivity).

Wire-speed Gigabit Engine to Fly the Transmission
With a robust hardware design, the GS-1116A performs packet forwarding at wire-speed, which can instantly transfer giant packets without performance degradation. In addition, with the support of 802.3x flow control, the GS-1116A guarantees smooth transmission by adjusting packet transmission to reduce congestion. IEEE802.1p CoS allows the switch to send packets based on the priority level. In addition, the GS-1116A supports jumbo frame transmission up to 10K bytes to improve transmission efficiency and network performance.

Hassle-free Installation and Usage
Connectivity can be as easy as connecting to a port on the switch. All the rest of the functions are done automatically. All ports on the GS-1116A are Auto MDI/MDIX ; that means you don't need to check the Ethernet cable type. In addition, auto-negotiation helps adjust link speed intelligently to reach the best link quality. In other words, there is not hassle of twigging with the switch or pouring over the user manuals. The GS-1116A is rack mountable, allowing you to place it in a rack to save precious office space.
