"Microsemi's Carrier Ethernet switch family offers the highest performance, market-ready solution for MEF CE 2.0 service delivery.The VSC7430 switch targets IP Edge demarcation and access equipment to deliver Enterprise and Mobile Backhaul. VSC7430 is based on Virtual 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 Carrier Ethernet services. VSC7430 also supports VeriTime™, Microsemi's patent-pending timing technology that delivers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588v2 time stamping. Combined with PTP software and an advanced Servo algorithm, Microsemi offers the most accurate 1588 solution.The VSC7430 Carrier Ethernet switch contains four 10/100/1000 Mbps ports (up to two copper ports), and two 10/100/1000/2500 Mbps ports. VSC7430 provides a rich set of Carrier Ethernet switching features such as hierarchical QoS, hardware-based OAM (Ethernet and MPLS/MPLSTP) and SAM, protection switching, and Synchronous Ethernet. Using provider bridging (Q-in-Q) and MPLS/MPLS-TP technology, VSC7430 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."
