TAIPEI, Taiwan -- June 2, 2014

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of
advanced IC solutions for Carrier, Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT)
networks introduced the latest generation of its SparX-III™ Ethernet switches
– VSC7420-04, VSC7421-04 and VSC7422-04 – optimized for industrial IoT
applications, including building automation, manufacturing automation,
intelligent transportation, smart energy, and video surveillance/security.
Leveraging Vitesse’s newest SparX-III family, turnkey Ethernet hardware and
software reference system and ODM model enables nearly 70% faster
time-to-market over traditional methods.

“We see industrial IoT networks standardizing on Ethernet, which introduces a
host of new requirements including low power, security and stringent
reliability,” said Andy Ebert, senior product marketing manager at Vitesse.
“OEM design and development costs typically skyrocket due to the variety of
industrial systems and applications they must support. Vitesse offers a way to
serve highly-diverse IoT market needs with a finite set of hardware and
software solutions, generating significant OEM savings in development,
inventory and certification costs.”

Next-Generation Ethernet Switches Aligned With IoT Networking Demands

Vitesse’s latest SparX-III Ethernet switches support a variety of port counts,
combinations of multiple interfaces, and advanced feature sets either using a
single device, or a combination of multiple devices with compatible
footprints. SparX-III family features include:

  *Energy Efficiency: Featuring Vitesse's EcoEthernet™ 2.0, the SparX-III
    Ethernet switches, combined with the industry’s only 12-port i-temp PHY –
    VSC8522 – enable a broad range of energy efficient Gigabit Ethernet
    platforms, ranging from single chip, 10-port to 2-chip, 24-port count
  *Rugged I-Temp Support: Vitesse’s SparX-III Ethernet switch family is
    available with i-temp support, readily meeting systems requirements for
    rugged industrial and outdoor environments;
  *Unmanaged to Lightly Managed Intelligence: For optimal network control and
    delivery of differentiated services, Vitesse’s SparX-III Ethernet switches
    deliver basic VLAN, Q-in-Q, Quality of Service (QoS) and rate limiting

Sampling now, the family includes:

  *VSC7420-04: 10-Port Layer-2 Gigabit Ethernet switch with eight fully
    integrated copper PHYs
  *VSC7421-04: 17-Port Layer-2 Gigabit Ethernet switch with 12 fully
    integrated copper
    PHYs; and
  *VSC7422-04: 25-Port Layer-2 Gigabit Ethernet switch with 12 fully
    integrated copper PHYs
