ZyXEL Communications this week introduced a new Power over Ethernet Plus switch and a Gigabit Ethernet switch.
The switches are sold through channel partners.
The two eight-port devices require no configuration and offer instant connectivity to Wi-Fi access points, security cameras, VoIP phones and other devices. All of the ports deliver 30 watts of power. The switches also are compliant with IEEE standards.
The Power over Ethernet Plus switch costs $309.99 and the Gigabit Ethernet switch goes for $319.99. Each comes with a two-year warranty.
