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.

Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code 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.

Powerful Compact Design for Small Workgroup Environment
The ES-2108 Managed Layer 2 Fast Ethernet Switch series is designed for small workgroup environment. Thanks to its compact 8-port design and selections of uplink options (1000Base-T, SFP, 100FX), the ES-2108 series offers functionality and connectivity that best fit your network needs. In addition, the wall-mountable design adds flexibility of deployment.

The ES-2108 series comes in four models: ES-2108, ES-2108-G, ES-2108-LC and ES-2108PWR. All switches come with a non-blocking 5.6 Gbps switching architecture for wire-speed transmission. The ES-2108 has 8 10/100Base-T ports without the uplink interface. The ES-2108-G comes with one dual personality Gigabit uplink port. Designed for current 100FX deployment, the ES-2108-LC comes with one independent 1 100FX port and one SFP slot to offer network bridging over the fiber connection with future hardware upgrade. In addition to having all the features in ES-2108-G, ES-2108PWR includes the PoE (Power over Ethernet) feature to supply power to devices connected to the 8 PoE ports simultaneously.

Excellent Network Management Capability
The ZyXEL ES-2108 series includes various management tools to streamline your management effort. With ZyXEL's exclusive iStacking™ technology, you can manage up to 24 ZyXEL switches through one IP address.. In addition, through iManage™ that includes Web-GUI, CLI (Command Line Interface) and text-based configuration, network managers can select the one management interface they are most comfortable with and get the job done efficiently. Moreover, you can protect your management session with SSHv1/v2 authentication and SSL encryption features. You can also use ZyXEL's NetAtlas Enterprise, (an SNMP-based network management software) to remotely manage your ES-2108 series from a central location(*). With its comprehensive features, ZyXEL's ES-2108 series is your first choice for cost-effective networking.

Security on the Network Edge
Support of IEEE 802.1x authentication allows centralized user management and added security protection. The ES-2108 series comes with complete VLAN functions (IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging and port-based VLAN) secure your network. With 4K PVID, you have complete freedom in VLAN management. The ES-2108 series also includes device-aware security features (MAC address, like MAC filtering, MAC freezing and MAC forwarding) to effectively prevent access of unidentified devices. All these features offer extra protection on the network edge.

Traffic Prioritization for Multi-Services
With 4 priority queues and WRR scheduling mechanism, ZyXEL's ES-2108 series is able to perform traffic prioritizing for multi-service applications. You can also customize DSCP settings to provide an end-to-end QoS environment. In addition, you can enable IGMP snooping to optimize service quality for IP multicasting applications. For bandwidth management, the ES-2108 series supports bandwidth increment of 64Kbps to give different bandwidth allocations.

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.
Ports & interfaces
Basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports quantity*
The number of basic switching RJ-45 Ethernet ports (sockets).
Console port
Network standard*
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 802.3, IEEE 802.3ab, 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.
DHCP server
A server is a system which that responds to requests across a computer network to provide, or help to provide, a network service. DCHP servers uses the DCHP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), which is a standardized networking protocol used by servers on an IP network to allocate IP addresses to computers. The purpose of DHCP is to automate the IP address configuration of a computer without a network administrator. IP addresses are typically selected from a range of assigned IP addresses stored in a database on the server and issued to a computer which requests a new IP address. An IP address is assigned to a computer for a set interval, after which, the computer must renew the IP address or acquire a new one.
DHCP client
IP routing
Flow control support
Port mirroring
Link aggregation
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.
8192 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.
