Vitesse Semiconductor has successfully taken part in the 2010 Carrier Ethernet interoperability tests that took place in the Ethernet Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC).

VSC7428 Caracal 1 Ethernet Switch Engine Circuit

Vitesse showed precise and realistic performance metrics by utilizing the Caracal Carrier Ethernet switch engine series, for the comprehensive multi-vendor testing scenarios. Vitesse, in particular, monitored the Ethernet performance in IP/MPLS, MPLS-TP, and Ethernet aggregation settings.

Vitesse was the only semiconductor supplier that took part in the EANTC, which included over 20 device suppliers. The company demonstrated the high-levels of support for Synchronous Ethernet, Ethernet Ring Protection Switching, and OAM, by using the Caracal-2 (VSC7429), and Caracal-1 (VSC7428) Carrier Ethernet switches.

The first week of the EANTC was committed to hot staging and attaining real-world results. In the second week, vendors stopped the executions and optimized the performance for a sample network.

Vitesse’s Product Marketing Manager, Jack O’Neill stated that the company’s Carrier Ethernet switch engine series have emphasized on aspects such as fast failover switching and Synchronous Ethernet. He added that the company’s Caracal solutions are ideal for applications requiring enhanced support for Synchronous Ethernet, 1588v2, Ethernet Ring Protection Switching, and OAM.
