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.

Easy ETTx Deployments
The ZyXEL ES-2108-F is an active Ethernet ETTx deployment solution aiming for service providers, as well as cable, utilities and municipality operators. With the capability of converged data, voice and video services, the ES-2108-F can act as a customer premise equipment placed in homes and small offices/home offices (SOHO) to deliver the hottest services.

The highly flexible design of ZyXEL ES-2108-F adapts to different environment to simplify fiber installations. Since it accepts the latest 100BASE-BX (bi-directional) fiber transceiver capable of transmitting with single strands of fiber, the transmission capacity can be expanded immediately without additional cost while maximizing the value of existing fiber plants. For legacy fiber environments, the ES-2108-F also takes 100BASE-FX/LC transceivers to ease the deployment. In addition to fiber uplinks, the ES-2108-F comes with 8 100BASE-TX Ethernet LAN ports with full wire-speed Layer 2 switching function as well.

Secured Service-level IP TV & VoIP Operations
Service quality of IP TV and VoIP is the key to success; as such the ES-2108-F comes with proven QoS and VLAN functions to ensure smooth operation. In terms of QoS, the ES-2108-F comes with 4 priority queues and the WRR/SPQ scheduling mechanism to perform traffic prioritizing for multi-service applications, and DSCP can be applied to an end-to-end QoS environment. In terms of the hottest IP TV service, the ES-2108-F also supports MVR to work with IGMP snooping that empowers commercial IP TV deliveries. In addition, Fast Leave is also supported to eliminate streaming quality disturbance while users surf between different channels.

Standardized Services Empowered by Service-aware VLAN
Since the 256 static VLAN entries on ZyXEL, the ES-2108-F sufficiently satisfy the growing need from services, video, VoIP and data access identification purposes, it is ideal for converged networks to deliver multiple services. In addition, the complete range of 4K PVID offers the best flexibility for VLAN configuration. In term of bandwidth management, the ES-2108-F allows a wide range of choice and granularity of bandwidth options.

Strengthened Service Management and Control
The ES-2108-F supports 802.3ah operation and administration (OAM) standard to facilitate device management, and EMS supports remote device management as well. In addition, command line interface (CLI) and text-configuration are also offered to enable more effective network management.

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).
Web-based management
Using a website/web application to manage something.

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.
