Vitesse Semiconductor introduced its Jaguar-2 single chip solution for MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 business services over public and private cloud networks.
Jaguar-2 features 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 24 2.5G ports, up to four ports of direct connectivityto 10G optical modules and Layer-3 routing support. Sampling is expected to begin later this quarter.
Jaguar-2 leverages Vitesse Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA) to enable advanced Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) and Service Activation Testing (SAT) capabilities, including wirespeed RF2544 and Y.1564.
Highlights of the Jaguar-2 family:
- 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;
- VeriTime, which is Vitesse's high accuracy IEEE 1588v2 Precision Time Protocol implementation for nanosecond-accurate network timing and synchronization.
