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-2024 24-port Managed L2 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.

With non-blocking 48 Gbps switching fabric, the GS-2024 provides 24-port 1000 Base-T Layer 2 switching capability at wire-speed over current CAT-5 cabling to the desktops, as well as two open SFP slots providing fiber connectivity for long loop reach applications.

High Performance
The highly effective switch architecture of ZyXEL GS-2024 offers 48Gbps non-blocking switch fabric, 35.7 million packet-per-second forwarding rate and wire-speed performance. Ten times bandwidth than traditional Fast Ethernet that offer a nearly wait network experience which is suitable for Today’s diverse E-Business applications. These benefits allow customers to enjoy exceptional network speed with little effort.

Industry Standard-based Network Management
ZyXEL GS-2024 features a comprehensive set of network management interface, including Web-based management interface, CLI management interface (Local/Remoter) and a built-in out-of-band MGMT RJ-45 port. User can easily configure, troubleshoot and monitor switches through these methods. The GS-2024 also supports ZyXEL iStackingTM a superior Web-based management software that allows administrators to remotely manage multiple switches located differently. Administrators can configure, monitor, troubleshoot and manage up to 24 switches at once with just one IP, regardless of the physical locations.

Enterprise-class Feature Set
With all ports support N-way auto negotiation and MDI/MDI-X crossover, the GS-2024 supports 802.1p priority queue, 802.1Q VLAN, port-based VLAN, 802.3ad port aggregation, 802.1w RSTP and rate limiting. Corporate IT users can also benefit from the QoS and Security features of ZyXEL GS-2024. For traffic management, the GS-2024 supports IEEE 802.1p that classifies and prioritizes network traffic by four independent queues. On security, the GS-2024 supports Specific MAC Addresses Forwarding Per Port, which means only designated subscribers has the privilege to pass through the specific ports. In addition, the GS-2024 also supports IEEE802.1x port authentication.

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, IEEE 802.3z
Full duplex
A full-duplex system allows communication in both directions, and unlike half-duplex, allows this to happen simultaneously.
Link aggregation
Flow control support
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
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.
Stackable *
Devices can be placed on top of each other.
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.
50 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.
