Vitesse Service Aware Switch Engines Simplify Service Delivery in Mobile and Cloud Access Networks

Vitesse Service Aware Switch Engines Simplify Service Delivery in Mobile and 
Cloud Access Networks 
MEF CE 2.0 Ready Serval-2 With ViSAA Enables 10G Scalability for
Bandwidth Intensive Network Applications 
CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/13 --  Vitesse Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC
solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, expanded its
Serval(TM) Carrier Ethernet Switch Engine portfolio with Serval-2(TM)
(VSC7438), the industry's first silicon optimized for high bandwidth
IP Edge and Ethernet/MPLS access applications, including mobile
backhaul, cloud access and business service delivery. Featuring
Vitesse Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA(TM)) -- also announced
today -- Serval-2 radically simplifies carrier delivery of MEF CE 2.0
services in packet-based mobile and cloud access Ethernet networks. 
According to IEEE, communications networks will need to support an
average of 58% compound annual growth rates in bandwidth. Operators
are moving quickly to packet-based networks to meet opex/capex goals
as they try to address this traffic explosion and control network
build-out costs. Operators that provide new revenue generating
services over private or public cloud networks require new Carrier
Ethernet features, including multi-operator OAM and Service
Activation Testing to support maintenance and billing. Operators must
also deliver these services in a ubiquitous, reliable and secure
manner over these new 4G LTE and cloud-based networks. 
"Serval-2 revolutionizes the way in which Carriers can deliver
services over Ethernet for high bandwidth mobile backhaul, video
distribution, cloud access and more," said Uday Mudoi, product
marketing director at Vitesse. "Vitesse Service Aware Architecture
enables efficient delivery of these services. Serval-2 represents
Vitesse's continued focus on delivering solutions for a new
generation of network access equipment for mobile/IP Edge and cloud." 
Serval-2: Feature-Rich and MEF CE 2.0 Ready  
Adding to Vitesse's widely adopted Serval-1(TM) and Serval-Lite(TM)
Switch Engines, the Serval-2 family features include: 

--  MEF CE 2.0 ready with per connection feature control and resource
    allocation. Each Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) can utilize
    dedicated policers and shapers, statistics, queues, and
    tagging/marking schemes. Further, each connection may use built-in
    service activation testing when first provisioned; dedicated OAM
    functions ensure fault-free and SLA-compliant operation;
--  Scalable support of multiple 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and 10 GE ports
    without the need for additional external components. Current
    solutions, which typically involve external FPGAs or NPUs to enable
    Carrier Ethernet features, suffer major performance hits when scaling
    to the higher bandwidth needs of today's demanding consumers. In
    contrast, Serval-2 executes performance-critical functions including
    OAM and protection switching, and maintains wirespeed performance for
    even the most demanding service delivery functions;
--  VeriTime(TM) nanosecond-accurate IEEE1588v2 timing technology that
    meets LTE and LTE-Advanced network requirements, including those of
    variable-rate and asymmetric millimeter wave and microwave links;
--  Support of multi-operator OAM&P and Service Level Agreements for
    Ethernet management, enabling RAN sharing and third-party backhaul
--  Hierarchical QoS (H-QoS) support for high bandwidth, media rich
    traffic delivery over 4G networks.

When combined with Vitesse Intellisec(TM)-enabled PHYs, the Serval
family enables a secure network for Layer 2 VPN services at a price
point that is 50% lower than alternative solutions.
