Microsemi’s Carrier Ethernet switch family offers the highest performance, market-ready solution for MEF CE 2.0 services.The VSC7468 Jaguar-2™ device targets IP Edge demarcation and aggregation equipment to deliver Enterprise and mobile backhaul services. VSC7468 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 (CE) services. VSC7468 also integrates VeriTime™, Microsemi’s patent-pending distributed timing technology that delivers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588v2 timing implementation to meet today’s LTE/LTE-A requirements. The VSC7468 Carrier Ethernet switch contains up to thirty-two 10/100/1000 Mbps SGMII/SerDes ports, twelve 10/100/1000 QSGMII ports, and four 10 Gbps XAUI/SFI ports. VSC7468 provides a rich set of Carrier Ethernet switching features such as hierarchical QoS, hardware-based OAM (Ethernet and MPLS/MPLS-TP) and Service Activation Testing, protection switching, and Synchronous Ethernet. Using Provider Bridging (Q-in-Q) and MPLS/MPLSTP technology, VSC7468 delivers MEF CE 2.0 EVCs. It features advanced TCAM classification in both ingress and egress. Per-EVC features include advanced L3-aware classification, a rich set of statistics, OAM for end-to-end performance monitoring, and dual-rate policing and shaping.
