Vitesse Adds MPLS-TP Capability to Turnkey Carrier Ethernet Software Suite

New CEServices Module Supports Rising Service Provider MPLS-TP Deployments for Business-Class Ethernet Service Delivery from Access to Core

LAS VEGAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 9, 2014CTIA SUPER MOBILITY WEEK – Market demand for higher capacity Carrier Ethernet connectivity to services such as high-definition video surveillance, cloud computing, mobile backhaul and data backup/disaster recovery continues to shape the global WAN infrastructure. According to Vertical Systems Group, Carrier Ethernet business-class service bandwidth is expected to surpass 75% of total global business bandwidth by 2017. Service providers increasingly rely on MPLS-TP to connect Carrier Ethernet access networks to existing IP/MPLS core networks for delivery of business-class MEF CE 2.0 services.

To support this mounting service provider need, Vitesse Semiconductor announced availability of an MPLS-TP protocol software module for its CEServices™ software. Combined with the industry’s only service-aware architecture (ViSAA™), exclusively available in Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet switch engines, CEServices provides a complete turnkey solution for Carrier Ethernet access network equipment. Access equipment based on MPLS-TP can deliver capabilities such as enhanced protection and connection-oriented packet switching, ideal for the ongoing transition from TDM to packet-based backhaul infrastructure.

“We see MPLS-TP as a growing market requirement over the next few years – according to our global service provider research, over half of operators have deployed or plan to deploy MPLS-TP in the next two years,” stated Michael Howard, principal analyst for carrier networks and co-founder of Infonetics Research. “MPLS-TP is emerging as a must-have technology for service providers deploying an Ethernet Virtual Circuit-like architecture end-to-end over their network. Vitesse’s ViSAA technology building blocks can enable MEF CE 2.0 feature-full service delivery over Ethernet and MPLS-TP networks.”

Enabling Rich Service Delivery of MEF CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet Services

Vitesse’s offering includes advanced Operations and Maintenance (OAM) supporting service provider end-to-end provisioning, monitoring and managing of their Ethernet Virtual Circuits (EVCs). Vitesse Serval-2, LynX-2 and Jaguar-2™ Carrier Ethernet switch engines are the only merchant silicon solutions available today which can support both ITU (Y.1731) and IETF standards (BFD) for MPLS-TP OAM in hardware, enabling line rate performance.

“The potential capex and opex advantages of using an EVC-like architecture end-to-end over carrier networks are largely untapped today,” said Craig Pasek, software product marketing manager at Vitesse. “MPLS-TP gives Ethernet service delivery robustness, greater scale, stronger layering and protection. Turnkey solutions like Vitesse’s that readily enable MEF CE 2.0, feature-rich service delivery over Ethernet and MPLS-TP networks will be essential for carriers to fully leverage those capex/opex benefits.”
