Zyxel Communications has enhanced the versatility and management of their networking solutions with the announcement of two new NebulaFlex hybrid Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switches.
Two new “hybrid” switches join NebulaFlex familiy
The Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switch (GS1920v2) and Gigabit Ethernet Smart Managed Switch with 10G Uplink (XGS1930) were introduced as the newest members of Zyxel’s NebulaFlex family of hybrid networking products.
The new switches can be used as standalone web managed switches or can be cloud-managed license-free using the Nebula Cloud Management Platform.
Zyxel’s growing family of NebulaFlex switches and access points give users the ability to switch from managing multiple standalone access points and switches to a cloud-managed network infrastructure without the need to replace existing equipment or purchase additional hardware controllers or software.
“The addition of the two new switches to our NebulaFlex family of business-class networking products gives users an affordable yet powerful network infrastructure solution for growing businesses,” said Tri Nguyen, Market Development Manager at Zyxel.
“As businesses grow and their network requirements increase, NebulaFlex products scales easily and enable a seamless transition from multiple standalone Zyxel devices to a Cloud-managed infrastructure without the need to purchase new equipment or a Cloud management controller.”

Cloud management in the palm of your hand
Management of Zyxel’s Cloud-managed Nebula and NebulaFlex networking products has become easier and more convenient for IT managers with the launch of the updated Nebula app.
Available for both iOS and Android devices, the new Nebula app adds an array of configuration settings as well as quick access to real-time information and troubleshooting tools to make it faster and easier to install and manage WiFi networks.
The browser-based Nebula Control Center has also been updated to include more than 20 new features including support for Mesh WiFi, traffic logs, and VPN topology.
“The exponential increase of devices on the network driven by BYOD initiatives and advanced networking applications in the workspace creates ever-changing demands on the network and mandates 24/7 access to real-time network management,” explained Shawn Rogers, Market Development Manager at Zyxel.
“The enhanced Nebula app puts even more network visibility and management controls in the hands of the IT administrator giving them the ability to diagnose and resolve network issues faster regardless of where they are in the world.”
