Microsemi’s Carrier Ethernet (CE) switch family offers the highest performance, market-ready solution for MEF CE 2.0 service delivery.The VSC7436 Serval-2 Lite™ device targets IP Edge demarcation and access equipment to deliver Enterprise and mobile backhaul. VSC7436 is based on Virtualized Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA™, a silicon implementation that offers an unmatched level of Service Edge and Carrier Ethernet Networking features. ViSAA achieves wirespeed performance for even the most feature-rich Carrier Ethernet services.VSC7436 also integrates VeriTime™ IEEE 1588, Microsemi’s patent-pending timing technology that delivers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588 network timing and synchronization implementation.The VSC7436 CE switch contains four 10/100/1000 Mbps ports (up to two copper ports), four 10/100/1000/2500 Mbps ports, and two 10G ports. VSC7436 provides a rich set of CE switching features such as hierarchical QoS, hardware-based OAM (Ethernet and MPLS/MPLS-TP) and SAM, protection switching, and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). Using provider bridging (Q-in-Q) and MPLS/MPLS-TP technology, VSC7436 delivers MEF CE 2.0 EVCs.The Versatile Content Aware Processor (VCAP™) architecture is scalable and flexible for secure applications. It features advanced TCAM classification in both ingress and egress. Per-EVC features include a rich set of statistics, OAM for end-to-end performance monitoring, and dual-rate policing and shaping.
