VSC7416 Serval-Lite™ contains five 10/100/1000 Mbps SGMII/SerDes ports and two 2.5G SGMII/SerDes ports. VSC7416 is based on Virtualized Service Aware Architecture (ViSAA™), a silicon implementation that offers an unmatched level of Service Edge and Carrier Ethernet (CE) Networking features. ViSAA achieves wirespeed performance for even the most feature-rich CE services. The VSC7416 device provides a rich set of Carrier Ethernet switching features such as MPLS/MPLS-TP, MEF Ethernet services, hierarchical QoS scheduling, provider bridging, protection switching, OAM, and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE).For critical network timing applications, VSC7416 uses VeriTime™ IEEE 1588, Microsemi’s patent-pending distributed timing technology that delivers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588 network timing and synchronization implementation. VSC7416 supports advanced TCAM-based service SLA guarantees. Security is assured through frame processing using a TCAM-based content aware processor (VCAP). An embedded 416 MHz MIPS processor 32-bit CPU with DDR2/DDR3 external memory and DMA-based frame extraction and insertion supports VeriTime IEEE 1588 as well as injection of advanced data flows for service activation measurement (SAM) testing. VSC7416 is an excellent choice for Mobile backhaul and for service provider demarcation points in Edge and Access devices. A comprehensive application programming interface (API) and software package are provided for CE applications. The software package integrates easily with third-party software, preserving existing software investments while adding new, enhanced carrier functionality.
