The Zyxel XGS2210/GS2210 Series are fully featured Layer 2 Gigabit access switches designed to meet converged data, video and voice networking needs. The Series comes in 8-, 24-, 28-, 48- and 52-port models with a combination of PoE and non-PoE, as well as Gigabit (GS2210 Series) and 10 Gigabit (XGS2210 Series) uplink options. The PoE models comply with the IEEE 802.3af PoE and 802.3at PoE Plus standards and provide a high PoE power budget. In addition, the XGS/GS2210 Series features the built-in smart fan which has been designed to automatically adjust speeds based on the device temperature for silent and reliable switch operation.

  • High power budget of 375 W (24HP/28HP/48HP/52HP) and 180 W (8HP)
  • L2 multicast, IGMP snooping, MVR and voice VLAN for convergence
  • Enhanced network protection with IP source guard, DHCP snooping, ARP inspection, CPU protection
  • L2, L3 and L4 filtering, MAC freeze, port isolation, guest VLAN for improved isolation and access control
  • Physical stacking up to 2 units and 96 Gigabit ports through 2 standard 10G SFP+ ports (XGS2210 Series only)


Agile traffic control for converged networking applications

The Zyxel XGS2210/GS2210 Series has a rich Layer 2 feature set that can shape the traffic for diverse VoIP, video conference, IPTV and IP surveillance deployments. Advanced traffic control features of the GS2210/GS2210 Series such as L2 multicast, IGMP snooping, Multicast VLAN Registration (MVR) provide hotels, businesses and educational institutions greater agility and more effective traffic management for the converged applications of today.

Zyxel One Network experience

Aiming for relieving our customers from repetitive operations of deploying and managing a network, Zyxel One Network is designed to simplify the configuration, management, and troubleshooting, allowing our customers to focus on the business priorities. Zyxel One Network presents an easy-to-use tool, Zyxel One Network Utility (ZON Utility), to realize speed network setup. Zyxel Smart Connect allows Zyxel networking equipment to be aware and recognize each other and further facilitating the network maintenance via one-click remote functions such as factory reset or power cycling. Zyxel One Network redefines the network integration across multiple networking products from switch to Wi-Fi AP and to Gateway.

High-powered Power over Ethernet (PoE)

The XGS2210/GS2210 Series PoE switches support the 802.3at PoE Plus standard which provides up to 30 watts of power per port for advanced Powered Devices (PD) like 802.11ac wireless APs and video IP phones. The high power budget enables the XGS2210/GS2210 PoE switches to comfortably accommodate the PDs required in a modern network edge. Especially in consumption mode, the XGS2210/GS2210 PoE switches deliver only the actual power required by the networked devices, reserve the rest and maximize its power budget. This capability increases the number of devices connected and ensures a better ROI for the business.

High level network and access security

Equipped with an extensive array of security features such as IP source guard, DHCP snooping, ARP inspection and CPU protection, the Zyxel XGS2210/GS2210 Series offers enhanced control and isolation for improved convergence of video, voice and data. Combining multiple L2, L3 and L4 filtering mechanisms with such education- and hospitalityfriendly features as MAC freeze, port isolation and guest VLAN, the Zyxel XGS2210/GS2210 Series offers a high level of security, flexibility and control for diverse access layer deployments.

Future-proof connectivity and scalability

Full IPv6 support with features including autoconfiguration, duplicate address prevention, dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) and neighbor discovery, the Zyxel XGS2210/ GS2210 Series helps businesses and organizations stay ahead and get ready for future IPv6 networks. Also, the physical stacking feature of the XGS2210 Series facilitates management for multiple switches with one single interface.

Application Diagram:

IPTV, surveillance and guest access (hospitality)

  • Each guest room can be assigned a dedicated data VLAN to provide better isolation and security to the Internet users
  • The MVR function allows a single IPTV multicast VLAN to be shared with all the set-top boxes while the subscribers remain in separate data VLANs
  • The total PoE power budget of up to 375 watts provides full supports to wireless APs and IP surveillance devices. (24HP/28HP/48HP/52HP)
  • Enabling the IGMP snooping function allows IPTV traffic to be directed to the subscribers only, which reduces the waste of bandwidth caused by multicasting IPTV traffic to all ports
  • The rich QoS feature set provides effective bandwidth prioritization and control to ensure various services quality and prevent bandwidth abuse
Mission critical network (VRRP, MSTP, redundant power)

Robust network infrastructure (education)

  • The high power budget makes the XGS2210/GS2210 Series perfect for classroom WLAN deployments with many APs for student digital textbooks
  • The XGS2210/GS2210 Series switch can separate the teacher's network from the student's network and grant different bandwidth privileges with port-based and ACL-based bandwidth management
  • Support for 8 hardware queues per port and QoS based on 802.1p and DSCP reduces traffic congestions for latency-sensitive interactive learning applications
  • Advanced defense mechanisms like IP source guard, DHCP snooping and ARP inspection safeguards the network from intentional attacks
