The ZyXEL MGS-3712 Gigabit Ethernet switches offer Layer 2 switching capability in a smart enclosure. With non-blocking 24 Gbps switching fabric, the MGS-3712 feature 8 GbE copper ports and 4 dual-personality GbE (GbE SFP + 1000Base-T) ports.
The MGS-3712 also come with advanced L2/L3/L4 features, high-performance hardware platform, robust security, Quality of Service (QoS) and management features to deliver intelligent connectivity to essential business applications. Incorporating new features such as VLAN Stacking (also known as VLAN Tunneling) and VLAN Translation, it is possible to isolate the customer traffics from each other or the internal core network signaling traffic.
On MGS-3712, the "Front Access" outdoor cabinet design for easy wiring and maintenance has been added to meet Metro Ethernet demands; and flexible power source choices like AC/DC dual-input also relieves customer of outlet constraints. In addition, the PWM control fan module not only reduces the noise, but also extends MTBF and improves reliability. External alarm input/output block connects mechanical cabinet parts to the management network, while the operation temperature and high humidity protection allows the network to spread more extensively.
