Vitesse Transforms Carrier Model to Monetize Ethernet Business Services

Vitesse Transforms Carrier Model to Monetize Ethernet Business Services 
Jaguar-2 Carrier Ethernet Switch Engine With ViSAA Is Industry's Only
Silicon Solution Architected for Service Delivery in Cloud Access
CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/22/13 --  Vitesse Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC
solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, broadened its Carrier
Ethernet Switch Engine portfolio with Jaguar-2(TM) (VSC7468), a
turnkey, single chip solution for MEF CE 2.0-compliant delivery of
business services over public and private cloud networks. Jaguar-2,
with Vitesse Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA(TM)), delivers the
industry's most advanced Operations, Administration and Maintenance
(OAM) and Service Activation Testing (SAT) capabilities, including
wirespeed RF2544 and Y.1564, to remotely provision Ethernet-based
business services on demand, monitor and troubleshoot issues. This
highly granular level of control enables carriers to readily monetize
their service offerings. 
The ability to support MEF Carrier Ethernet specifications is a now
checklist item for service provider equipment in today's networks.
Jaguar-2 delivers on these requirements by embedding these
functionalities in hardware, radically changing how carriers can
differentiate and monetize their service offerings in an increasingly
crowded marketplace. Recent market analysis highlights Ethernet as
the preferred protocol for business connectivity, with global
Ethernet bandwidth surpassing legacy data bandwidth in 2012.
According to Vertical Systems Group, the Ethernet services market is
forecast to exceed $49 billion by 2017. Driving this growth is the
demand for dynamic, high speed bandwidth for cloud-based applications
and data services in industries ranging from education, healthcare,
financial services, and government to more traditional IT and
Enterprise services. 
"Ethernet business services are a strategic revenue driver for
service providers, whether they're telecom carriers, cable MSOs, or
Carrier Ethernet retailers, and the market is increasingly
competitive," said Erin Dunne, director of research services at
Vertical Systems Group. "Service providers are looking for ways to
differentiate their offerings, including faster service turn-up and
meeting a widening range of SLA requirements." 
"As businesses increasingly outsource applications and data services
to the cloud, their Ethernet connection becomes more critical than
ever," said Uday Mudoi, vice president, product marketing at Vitesse.
"Representing the third-generation in Vitesse's Carrier Ethernet
switch engine portfolio, Jaguar-2 with ViSAA enables unprecedented
levels of remote provisioning, monitoring and troubleshooting
capabilities on service provider network access equipment. This
granular level of control fundamentally changes how service providers
can monetize their services and create new revenue opportunities." 
Jaguar-2: Turnkey Solution Adding More Scale and Services for
Aggregation and Edge 
Supported by Vitesse's CEServices(TM) software applications, the
Jaguar-2 family delivers a complete turnkey solution including: 

--  MEF CE 2.0 readiness with per Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC)
    feature control and resource allocation support for 1 Gigabit Ethernet
    (GE) and 10GE applications;
--  Hierarchical service OAM and performance measurement including up and
    down MEP OAM and Service Activation Testing for maintenance and SLA
    assurance purposes;
--  Hierarchical QoS on a per-service basis, versus the port-level QoS
    available in competitive solutions; and
--  VeriTime(TM), the industry's highest accuracy IEEE 1588v2 Precision
    Time Protocol implementation for nanosecond-accurate network timing
    and synchronization.

Jaguar-2 features 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 24 2.5G ports, up to four
ports of direct connectivity to 10G optical modules and Layer-3
routing support. Jaguar-2 is sampling in calendar Q4 2013. Learn more
