CAMARILLO, Calif. -- March 5, 2013

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of
advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced that
Martin Nuss, chief technology officer at Vitesse, will join other industry
experts in a technical panel discussion at OFC/NFOEC 2013 taking place at the
Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Dr. Nuss will join experts from NSA, Ciena, and the Department of Defense on
the technical panel “Network Security,” (NTh3J) on Thursday, March 21 at 1
p.m. local time. The panel will address specifics of security for the
communications sector transport networks. With most security services designed
to operate at layers three and higher, they may not be directly applicable to
transport networks. A future network with dynamic network services and
frequent resource optimization may result in more exposed interfaces and
higher network complexity, but can also increase vulnerabilities, while
resource virtualization can help limit exposure. Potential topics to be
considered include types of threats, technologies available to mitigate
threats, the value proposition of security, and vendor/carrier/government
perspectives.

With more than 20 years of technical and management experience, Dr. Nuss is a
Fellow of the Optical Society of America and a member of IEEE. Dr. Nuss also
serves on the board of directors for the Alliance for Telecommunications
Industry Solutions (ATIS) and holds a doctorate in applied physics from the
Technical University in Munich, Germany.
