CARRIER ETHERNET APAC 2012 – Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced availability of a new Network Interface Device/Ethernet Access Device ( NID/EAD) reference design delivering carrier-class networking for delivery of cloud-based business services. Based on Vitesse’s CEServices software and Serval™(VSC7418) Carrier Ethernet switch engine, the NID/EAD platform is designed to significantly reduce time-to-market and development cost for Vitesse customers. It exceeds MEF CE 2.0 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.” Vitesse at Carrier Ethernet APAC 2012 Vitesse CTO, Martin Nuss, will participate alongside industry experts from Telkom Indonesia, Vertel Australia, Adva Optical Networks and Accedian Networks in the "What is the business impact of CE 2.0 for mobile backhaul" panel. The panel is scheduled during the "Mobile Backhaul" stream on Wednesday, December 5, 2012, starting at 3:00 p.m. local time. Vitesse will showcase this new reference design, as well as its VeriTime portfolio, at Carrier Ethernet APAC 2012, Stand #9. Vitesse customer Pulsecom’s new SuperG Ethernet NID platform will also be available for viewing at Vitesse’s stand.
