Vitesse Delivers SDN/NFV-Ready Carrier Ethernet Switch Engine

Vitesse Semiconductor introduced its Serval-2 Lite (VSC7436) Carrier Ethernet switch engine for service provider IP Edge and Ethernet/MPLS access applications, including mobile backhaul and business-class service delivery. The chipset and software is aimed at small form factor, low-power network interface devices (NIDs) and lower port count customer premise equipment (CPE) to connect the Enterprise to Carrier networks.

Serval-2 Lite features Vitesse Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA) for delivery of MEF CE 2.0 services in packet-based mobile and cloud access Ethernet networks. When combined with Vitesse's CEServices software, Serval-2 Lite delivers a turnkey SDN-ready solution for touchless provisioning and remote control of MEF CE 2.0 services over Carrier networks.

Key attributes include:

  • Vitesse Service Aware Architecture delivering hardware-based advanced fault detection, service activation test and performance monitoring features for business-class Ethernet service delivery;
  • VeriTime IEEE 1588 timing technology, the industry's only 1588 solution that meets and exceeds the new stringent ITU specifications for 4G TD-LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless networks;
  • Hierarchical QoS (H-QoS) for robust support MEF CE 2.0-compliant delivery of SLA-based Carrier Ethernet services.


"Vitesse's turnkey solutions will be imperative for Carriers to keep up with the network demands of the future and enable SDN/NFV service automation," said Uday Mudoi, vice president of product marketing at Vitesse. "Vitesse's service-aware portfolio is unique in the industry and designed to help service providers efficiently scale network capabilities with traffic demand and improve business agility. We have customers using OpenDaylight today in conjunction with our solution to remotely provision and control services in Carrier deployments. This is vital for Carriers to realize the full benefits of #SDN and #NFV in their networks."

Sampling is expected in January.
