The Zyxel Nebula NSW200-28P Cloud Managed PoE Switch is a 375-watt high-power-budget Layer-2 switch with 10 Gigabit uplinks designed to be managed completely from the Nebula cloud. The cloud-based management interface provides site-wide configuration and monitoring on all ports, which allows multiple switches to be configured at the same time with a single click over the Web.

The NSW200-28P brings many benefits of the cloud management systems, such as simplified configuration, easy management, site-wide visibility and real-time control for speedy branch network deployments into networks. Advanced settings such as user friendly ACL, VLAN-based QoS and PoE scheduling significantly improve the efficiency of network management.

  • Essential L2 features with user-friendly ACL and VLAN configuration
  • Support 10GbE uplinks to servers for high bandwidth network
  • Optimized for quality voice and video traffic with high 375-watt power budget PoE technology
  • Support Port Mirroring for network traffic monitoring
  • Support DHCP Server Guard and IGMP snooping
  • RADIUS, static MAC forwarding and 802.1X authentication


Zero-touch deployments

The Zyxel Nebula Cloud Managed Switches support plug-and-play installation through remote provision with simple steps. The Zyxel Nebula NSW200-28P automatically downloads the current network configuration to the device and enables auto-provisioning without the need for on-site network professionals.

Perfect network backbone solution

Designed with 10 Gigabit uplinks, Zyxel’s Nebula NSW200-28P is the perfect network backbone solution for the Gigabit-speed 802.11ac trend. It provides 24 Gigabit ports for connecting devices to the network, along with four SFP+ ports for network uplinks to servers and delivery of highbandwidth network with ease. Additionally, the Zyxel Nebula NSW200-28P enhances network security and storm protection with advanced mechanisms such as Storm Control to detect and block intentional network attacks as well as to prevent disruptions by broadcasts, multicasts or unknown unicasts.

Efficient network provisioning

Rather than traditional management operations that require network administrators to configure each device separately with repetitive command lines, all Nebula Switches connected to the Nebula Control Center can be centrally managed with a single management interface. For better network management efficiency, switch settings made in the Nebula Control Center can automatically propagate to all connected Nebula switches.

Increased network uptime

User misspecifications are commonly seen in setting up ACL, reconfiguring VLAN/IP or other similar operations, and these may cause interruption to cloud connection. The Zyxel Nebula Cloud Managed Switches provide stable network environments by incorporating a mechanism that detects and prevents configuration that could potentially cause network disconnection between the switch and Nebula Control Center.

Better user experience

Quality-of-service (QoS) functionality is essential for applications that require guaranteed quality for stable connections. The Zyxel Nebula NSW200-28P PoE switches offer a smarter way for optimizing quality of service, which enables administrators to specify VLAN configuration with different priorities directly. This means that administrators can assign a priority to a specific VLAN through Nebula Control Center, and this priority can be applied to all tagged traffics for a specific VLAN. Traffics of the higher priority VLAN will receive preferential treatment and are serviced before VLANs with lower priorities. The same mechanism applies to voice VLAN configuration as well.

Ultra Durable Hardware Design

Unlike normal switch hardware design with Electrolytic capacitors (E-cap), the Zyxel Nebula Cloud Managed Switches adopt solid capacitors to get rid of drying out, bursting and leaking problems. Solid capacitors ensure Nebula switches with longer lifetime, high stability and robust operation.
