"The VSC7435 Serval-TE™ switch targets IP Edge demarcation and access equipment to deliver Enterprise and Mobile Backhaul. VSC7435 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 wire-speed performance for even the most feature-rich Carrier Ethernet services. VSC7435 also integrates 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 VSC7435 Carrier Ethernet switch contains four 10/100/1000 Mbps ports (up to two copper ports), and two 10/100/1000/2500 Mbps ports. An integrated DPLL simplifi es system design, and provides proven interoperability between switch and DPLL. VSC7435 provides a rich set of Carrier Ethernet switching features such as hierarchical QoS, hardware-based OAM (Ethernet and MPLS/MPLS-TP) and SAM, protection switching, and Synchronous Ethernet. Using provider bridging (Q-in-Q) and MPLS/MPLS-TP technology, VSC7435 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.VSC7435 supports IPv4/IPv6 Layer-3 (L3) routing and IPv4/IPv6 L3 multicast groups. L3 security features include source guard and unicast Reverse path Forwarding (uRFP) tasks. VSC7435 supports Microsemi's application programming interface for easy integration with third-party application software. The device also supports Microsemi's CEServices application software, dramatically reducing time-to-market."
