Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:VTSS), a leading provider of
advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks,
expanded its widely deployed E-StaX-III™ Enterprise Ethernet
switch family with the VSC7431,
the industry’s lowest power and scalable 28-port Gigabit Ethernet
(GE) switch with Layer 3 (L3) managed routing capabilities.
“Our new VSC7431 sets a new bar for functionality and trumps the
competition with unique slow power, integration and functionality,” said
Harpreet Chohan, director of product marketing at Vitesse. “Vitesse
continuously redefines the capabilities of its Ethernet technology to
address the evolving demands of the Enterprise network. Our superior
technology makes it easy for our OEM and ODM customers to deliver fully
managed L2 switching and L3 routing support while realizing
unprecedented BOM cost savings.”
Targeted at high-performance small and medium Enterprise network
applications, the VSC7431 demands 50% less power while integrating
must-have features for the Enterprise market: up to 50% more packet
buffer memory and a significantly larger L3 router table. The VSC7431 is
also the industry’s only GE solution scalable to 56 ports of direct
connectivity to 100Mbps and 1Gbps optical modules, using only two switch
chips in a single design.
VSC7431: Feature Rich with Compatible Software API
The VSC7431’s support of 1000 IPv4 host or prefix entries is
double that of the nearest competitive device, while the support of 128
router legs or 128 IPv4 multicast groups is similarly twice the size of
the competition’s 64 legs and groups. The switch integrates a MIPS CPU
for supporting control-plane tasks, and uses a common software API to
Vitesse’s existing family of SparX-III™ and E-Stax-III™ switches,
allowing design reuse and a faster time-to-market for customers.
Complemented by Vitesse’s SimpliPHY™ products, such as the
industry’s highest density 12-port PHY, the VSC8512,
Vitesse’s bundled GE solutions lower overall BOM cost and board real
estate compared to the competition.
