Simple, affordable way to go cloud

Our visual step-by-step guide makes it easy to setup switches and other network devices to Nebula either through the Web Interface and mobile APP. Pro-users, small businesses, and chain stores can take advantage of Nebula to access real-time network information and enjoy centrally managed control over the GS1915 Smart Managed switches along with access points and security gateways. GS1915 series switch can satisfy requirements for a wide range of users; for Prosumers, it is able to ensure the quality connectivity for growing home IOT devices, for small business users, it can provide a sturdy network performance for daily operation, for chain store adoptions, it can manage and maintain multiple stores, all while carrying the flexibility to expand networking solution for new store locations instantly.

NebulaFlex – simply manage it your way!

The GS1915 Series supports NebulaFlex technology which provides extended flexibility for users to easily switch network management modes between standalone and our license-free Nebula cloud management platform. The NebulaFlex even allows you to change your mind at any time without additional cost while protecting previous investments on wired technology.

Intelligence to power more devices

All 8 ports of GS1915-8EP support IEEE 802.3at for max deployment of modern PoE devices. Each port provides up to 30 W with a total of 60W power budget, ideal for setup just a few more AP and camera for small businesses. The GS1915-8EP features a default PoE consumption mode that delivers only the actual power required by your networked devices, reserves the rest to optimize its power budget, allowing the switch to power more devices, ensuring a better ROI for your business.

Compact size, silent operation

Both models in the GS1915 Series come with desktop dimensions and fanless design. The slim and silent Switch can perfectly blend into any working environment without disturbing fan noises.
