BARCELONA, Spain -- February 25, 2013

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of
advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, and Fibrolan, a
leading developer of integrated mobile backhaul solutions and Carrier Ethernet
systems, announced a technology demonstration for low power, wirespeed
performance in 4G/LTE mobile backhaul networks. Vitesse and Fibrolan will
feature the Falcon series products small cell backhaul demonstration at Mobile
World Congress, February 25-28, 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. Fibrolan is located
in Hall 5, Stand 5i94.

Fibrolan’s µFalcon-S, Falcon-M and Falcon-X platforms deliver a low power,
highly accurate IEEE1588 (1588) timing and synchronization solution for small
cells, critical for backhauling LTE/LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) traffic. Powered by
Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Switch engines with VeriTime™ and CEServices™
software stack, the Falcon was recently certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum
(MEF) as Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) compliant. The Fibrolan platform
delivers the most comprehensive solution for small cells backhaul including:

  *Wirespeed performance up to 128Gbps bandwidth, including 10G links;
  *High accuracy 1588 implementation, including Transparent Clock;
  *High availability;
  *OTT content and application aware optimization and caching;
  *Advanced and flexible QoS and SLA management;
  *Real time measurement and monitoring;
  *MPLS/MPLS-TP support; and
  *Low power, including ability to do Power over Ethernet (PoE).

“Carrier-grade performance at low power is a must for 4G LTE backhaul
solutions, particularly for small cells,” said Shamir Stein, CEO of Fibrolan.
“Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Chipset and CEServices software were the clear
choice as the platform for Fibrolan’s second generation Falcon series, as they
delivered an industry-leading timing solution, required in mobile networks,
with a quick path to CE 2.0 certification of our equipment.”

“Small cells become critical for carriers to grow both coverage and capacity
in their 4G LTE networks as demand for LTE-capable devices surges,” said Uday
Mudoi, product marketing director at Vitesse. “With Vitesse’s CE 2.0-ready,
low power device and software solutions enabling carrier-grade small cell
backhaul, we are that much closer to true ubiquitous 4G mobile connectivity.
Fibrolan’s technology demonstration and CE 2.0 certification of their
equipment is clear indication of the maturity of Vitesse’s solution.”
