Device Overview

Summary

VSC7429 Caracal-2 is the industry's first fully integrated 26-port Ethernet switch with 12 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) copper PHYs in a single package. In conjunction with Microsemi's 12-port PHY, 24/26-port switches can be designed using only two ICs. VSC7429 is based on Virtualized 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 CE services. VSC7429 is intended for Telecom and CE applications, supporting MEF service delivery and timing over packet solutions for IEEE 1588 network timing and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). VSC7429 uses VeriTime, Microsemi's patent-pending timing technology that delivers the industry's most accurate IEEE 1588 network timing and synchronization implementation. The device supports combinations of up to 26 SGMII ports consisting of 12G Cu PHYs, 12 SGMII interfaces, two of which support 1G/2.5G, and up to three QSGMII ports. One of the SGMII ports can be dedicated to the CPU for packet insertion and extraction. VSC7429 meets the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet requirements for green energy efficient Ethernet through Microsemi's ActiPHY and PerfectReach energy efficient modes. A powerful embedded 416MHz MIPS processor 32-bit CPU with DDR2 external memory and DMA-based frame extraction and insertion supports timing over packet, Ethernet OAM, and performance monitoring.VSC7429 is an excellent choice for Mobile backhaul and Microwave backhaul applications, and for service provider demarcation points in Edge and Access devices. A comprehensive application programming interface (API) and software package are provided for CE applications. The software package integrates easily with third-party software, preserving existing software investments while adding new, enhanced carrier functionality.
