What is the surge protection rating of the Zyxel switch?

Question

There are some concerns about lightning damaging our network equipment.
Do the Zyxel Small-Medium Business (SMB) switches support any form of lightning protection?
If so, what is the maximum voltage that the Zyxel switch can withstand without being damaged?

Answer

The lightning protection tolerance depends on where the surge originates.
If the surge is from the Ethernet port, the switch can withstand up to 1kV.
If the surge is from the power supply, the switch can withstand up to 2kV.
