Vitesse Delivers New Paradigm for Secure Cloud Applications

Vitesse Delivers New Paradigm for Secure Cloud Applications 
Industry's First GE & 10GE PHYs Enabling Cost-Effective, End-to-End
MACSec Encryption & IEEE1588v2 Network Timing Synchronization Over
Cloud and Multi-Operator Networks 
CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/13 --  Continuing its drive
to strategically advance Carrier and Enterprise Ethernet technology,
Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS) introduced the
latest generation of its SynchroPHY(TM) Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and
10GE portfolio which delivers a new paradigm to cost-effectively
secure cloud applications. The industry's first to enable
network-wide Layer 2 MACsec encryption and preserve nanosecond-level
IEEE 1588v2 network timing accuracy, the new physical layer
transceivers are ideal for securing cloud network applications
including e-commerce, database, collaboration, video, and enterprise
or government communications.  
Enabling this are technologies exclusively available from Vitesse

--  VeriTime(TM): the industry's highest accuracy IEEE 1588v2 Precision
    Time Protocol implementation for nanosecond-accurate network timing
    and synchronization; and
--  Intellisec(TM): the industry's first PHY technology to enable IEEE
    802.1AE MACsec encryption end-to-end over any network, for
    cost-effective network-wide link layer encryption.

"Vitesse's approach enables a paradigm shift in mobile, cloud, and
other critical infrastructure networks," said Richard Interrante,
product marketing director at Vitesse. "VeriTime delivers the
industry's de facto highest accuracy IEEE 1588v2 network timing and
now, we've again moved beyond our competitors with this latest
generation incorporating Intellisec. Delivering low latency security
while preserving network synchronization simply isn't possible with
traditional link-based MACsec technology. Network-wide Layer 2
security is now a realistic and affordable option for carriers and
other cloud providers." 
New Generation of PHYs Enabling Seamless End-to-End Cloud Security 

--  MACsec Networkwide: Intellisec dramatically extends MACsec to support
    secure access to multiple cloud services. Until now, MACsec PHYs have
    traditionally been limited to link-based box-to-box applications
    primarily within cloud service data centers;
--  Network Synchronization Preservation: Synchronization is critical for
    mobile, smart grid, financial, and industrial networks. Vitesse's
    Intellisec-enabled devices surpass the reach of competitive MACsec
    PHYs by working seamlessly with Vitesse's VeriTime technology to
    deliver security with nanosecond-level IEEE 1588v2 accuracy;
--  Simple, Low-Cost, Scalable: Intellisec enables a realistic and
    affordable Layer 2 MACsec security solution with a simple PHY upgrade,
    without any changes required to network equipment ASICs, switches or
--  Strong Encryption: Intellisec offers 256-bit encryption support,
    versus the 128-bit encryption typically used in today's alternatives.
