Vitesse's ViSAA Technology Revolutionizes Mobile Access and Cloud Service Delivery in Ethernet Networks

Vitesse's ViSAA Technology Revolutionizes Mobile Access and Cloud Service 
Delivery in Ethernet Networks 
Industry's Only Service-Aware Architecture, Purpose-Built for
Carriers to Monetize Delivery of MEF CE 2.0 Services 
CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/13 --  Vitesse Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC
solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, introduced Vitesse
Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA(TM)) technology, exclusively
available in its portfolio of Carrier Ethernet Switch Engines.
Integrated into the Ethernet switching layer silicon, ViSAA provides
a scalable, hardware-based, efficient solution for enabling MEF CE
2.0 Carrier Ethernet service delivery in networking equipment,
including Ethernet Access Devices (EAD) and Network Interface Devices
(NID), used for small cell and macrocell backhaul in fiber and
wireless networks.  
Generic Ethernet switches are not service aware, meaning that OEMs
are forced to augment traditional switching silicon with expensive
external hardware components that could include FPGA, NPUs, or both.
Supporting true carrier-class service delivery also often requires
complex software additions that impact performance, and ultimately,
carrier opex and revenue. Implementation is further challenged by the
growing demand for Carrier Ethernet services for cloud access and
mobile backhaul. Recent analyst reports show this market grew from $7
billion in 2007 to $30 billion in 2012, and forecast further growth
to $48 billion by 2016. As future services ramp, it becomes
imperative for carriers to dramatically increase efficiencies in
their network equipment. 
"ViSAA's hardware-based service aware technology overcomes the
typical performance and implementation issues involved in delivering
Carrier Ethernet services using an Ethernet switch," said Uday Mudoi,
product marketing director at Vitesse. "Vitesse's approach radically
simplifies how OEMs can enable carriers to establish, monitor and
monetize Ethernet services for mobile access and cloud networks." 
ViSAA: Unique Hardware-Based Service Layer for Scalable, Wirespeed
Performance
 ViSAA simplifies Ethernet business service provisioning
and monitoring. Its layered approach, combined with multiple hardware
accelerators, delivers: 


 
--  Wirespeed Performance and Scalability: Embedded in Vitesse's Carrier
    Ethernet Switch Engines, ViSAA delivers carrier-grade Ethernet
    services, including QoS, management, and performance monitoring at
    wirespeed, including multi-operator OAM and service activation testing
    capabilities. The silicon-based solution enables easy scaling to
    multi-port Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and 10 GE equipment without any
    compromises in wirespeed performance;
--  Simplified Service Provisioning: Complemented by Vitesse
    CEServices(TM) software, ViSAA simplifies provisioning of Carrier
    Ethernet services by supporting dedicated service-based resource
    pools;
--  LowPower and Cost: Tight integration of the service layer with
    switching silicon delivers up to 80% power savings with Vitesse's
    Carrier Ethernet Switch Engines versus competitive solutions. ViSAA
    also eliminates the need for any external processing components to
    deliver CE 2.0 services.

  
When combined with Vitesse's Intellisec(TM)-enabled PHYs, only ViSAA
can enable the secure, high performance and reliable networks
required to move mission-critical Enterprise applications to the
cloud. ViSAA technology is already embedded throughout Vitesse's
Carrier Ethernet Switch Engine portfolio, including previously
announced Serval(TM), Caracal(TM), Jaguar(TM), and LynX(TM) families.
