Vitesse Introduces IP Cores for Consumer, Enterprise and Industrial Applications

Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced a portfolio of Gigabit Ethernet (GE) intellectual property (IP) cores for simple and efficient integration of Gigabit switch functionality into Ethernet IC solutions for consumer electronics, gaming, printers, smart grid, industrial and other applications.

Ethernet is the most broadly deployed networking technology in the world. According to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, global Internet traffic will quadruple from 2010 to 2015 with video comprising 62% of all consumer Internet traffic in 2015. Further, mobile video is expected to increase 16-fold between 2012 and 2017, accounting for over two-thirds of the world’s mobile data traffic by the end of 2017. Vitesse’s latest IP cores deliver essential features in consumer and professional audio/video markets where Ethernet networking connectivity is used to deliver digital information, such as audio or video data, directly to end points in performance-sensitive applications. The cores also support the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet standard for low-power networking designs.

“Ubiquitous Ethernet connectivity is becoming a reality, from multi-player gaming and on-demand video in home entertainment consoles, to smart grid and industrial applications,” said Brian Jaroszewski, senior product marketing manager at Vitesse. “Broadening Vitesse’s IP core portfolio strategically aligns with our goal to grow licensing opportunities and expand our footprint into high-volume, adjacent markets.”

Easier Service and Traffic Management

The non-blocking Ethernet switch core IP is capable of content-aware TCAM-based classification, enabling affordable, fine-grained traffic differentiation for rich implementations of packet prioritization and security in networking applications. Additionally, Quality-of-Service (QoS) and latency-sensitive applications have access to granular traffic management with IEEE 802.1Qbb priority flow control, dual-leaky bucket policing and multi-stage traffic shaping providing per port and per queue shaping on egress ports.

Product Availability and Information

Two versions of the core are now available:

  • VSC9953-01, 13 Gbps GE Switch IP, and
  • VSC9954-01, 13 Gbps GE Switch IP supporting Audio Video Bridging (AVB) including the IEEE 802.1AS-2011 timing and synchronization protocol

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
