The ZyXEL ES-2108 Series is the managed Layer-2 Switch specially designed for SME, campus
or small workgroup environments. It’s fully featured to empower high multi-task performance
in today’s dynamic networks requiring security, QoS and management capabilities. The
complete product portfolio with optimized port configuration and Power over Ethernet (PoE)
functionality brings easy solutions to any network in need.
The ES-2108 Series comes in three models: ES-2108, ES-2108-G and ES-2108PWR. The ES-2108
Series delivers 8 port 10/100Base-TX, 10/100 PoE Base-TX and one GbE dual-personality on
ES-2108-G and ES-2108PWR.

Benefits
Intelligent traffic prioritization for multiple services
Multiple priority queues and scheduling mechanism make the ES-2108 Series easy to perform traffic
prioritizing for delay-service applications, and you can also customize DSCP settings to provide an
end-to-end QoS environment. The MVR ensures efficient transmission of multicasting stream on the
network-wide multicast VLAN. For bandwidth management, the ES-2108 Series supports bandwidth
increments to give different bandwidth allocations. With broadcast storm control, the network keeps
the broadcast packets below the pre-defined threshold to prevent network outrages.
High-Security network edge
The ES-2108 Series features wide-range security functions to prevent unauthorized data access. The
256 Static VLAN entry enables complicated VLANs portfolio for policy management, and the
full-range 4K VLAN (4K PVID) is equipped as well. In addition to 802.1x central access authentication,
it further assigns VLAN and bandwidth per pre-defined attribution for valid users to add flexibility to
network management. In addition, extra support of MAC filtering, MAC freezing and Specific MAC
forwarding allow network administrators to set security policies toward the device MAC addresses.
The ES-2108 Series has been designed to offer comprehensive security features for enforcing
security policies to the edge.
Excellent network management capability

8-port FE L2 Switch
The ES-2108 Series comes with rich 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 Web-GUI, CLI (Command Line Interface) and text-based configuration,
network managers can select the one management interface they are most comfortable with to get
the job done efficiently. Moreover, you can protect your management session with SSHv1/v2
authentication and SSL encryption features. With the comprehensive features, ZyXEL’s ES-2108 Series
is your first choice for cost-effective networking.
