Optimizing Ethernet networks for mobile access and cloud service delivery

Demand for Ethernet networks is growing. It is driven by mobile backhaul and cloud access. The service revenue is forecast to reach $48 billion by 2016 (Ovum, Sept.2012).

Speaking at the 13th Global Electronics Summit at Santa Cruz, USA, Uday Mudoi, Product Marketing director, Vitesse, said that carriers are making a lot of money by providing Ethernet based services. It is required to provide services to enterprises.

Businesses need cloud access. There were multiple solutions. Some were processor based, while some were Ethernet switches or FPGAs. Vitesse has introduced the service-aware switch engines. Vitesse has introduced ViSAA, which is integrated into the Vitesse switch engine.

ViSAA delivers CE networking and MEF services. It has a rich, granular set of per-connection feature control and resource allocation. There is hardware offload of performance-critical functions such as OAM and protection switching. Besides, there is switch resource allocation for support of the internal network operations, independent of service.

ViSAA matters because of wirespeed performance and extremely low power (less than 1.6W for CE access switches). It also offers many services with MEPS and service allocation.

Vitesse has enabled a new generation of access devices. It is an MEF CE 2.0 compliant hardware and software for mobile and cloud. The CE Services software is complementary to ViSAA and simplifies the service provider management.

The Vitesse CE Services software reduces complexity, TTM and development cost for OEMs. It enables rapid deployment of the standardized and differentiated service offerings by the operators. Many of Vitesse’s customers are already CE 2.0 certified.

Vitesse has also introduced the Serval-2 for higher bandwidth mobile backhaul and cloud service delivery. It allows a simple upgrade path to higher speeds, density and scale. When combined with the Vitesse Intellisec-enabled PHYs, the Serval family enables a secure network for L2 VPN services at 50 percent lower cost than alternative solutions.
