Vitesse Powers Carrier Ethernet 2.0 Access with 1588v2

Vitesse Semiconductor introduced a new Network Interface Device/Ethernet Access Device (NID/EAD) reference design based on its CEServices software and Serval (VSC7418) Carrier Ethernet switch engine.

Significantly, the NID/EAD platform supports MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0, which is becoming a requirement in many RFPs from network operators.  Vitesse said its design exceeds many of these requirements today, including line rate support for essential service creation and assurance features such as RFC2544, Y.1564, multi-operator OAM and Hierarchical Quality of Service (HQoS).  The reference design also integrates Vitesse’s VeriTime timing synchronization for mobile access deployments.

"This reference design delivers a proven path to future-proof IP Edge and cloud networks for real-time service delivery,” said Uday Mudoi, product marketing director at Vitesse. “Service-awareness and manageability are key to guarantee the security, performance and access required for business cloud services. Vitesse remains committed to advancing carrier-class networking for IP Edge and cloud computing.”

Pulsecom is introducing its new SuperG Ethernet NID platforms using Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Switch Engine. The CE 2.0-compliant SuperG access/aggregation platforms are designed for mobile backhaul, business services, as well as access and aggregation network and demarcation applications.

Pulsecom, whose customers include many of the large U.S. operators, said it is seeing a definite requirement for Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and IEEE 1588v2 capabilities.
