Microsemi's Carrier Ethernet (CE) switch family offers the highest performance, market-ready solution for MEF CE 2.0 service delivery. The VSC7436 Serval-2 Lite device targets IP Edge demarcation and access equipment to deliver Enterprise and mobile backhaul. VSC7436 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 services. VSC7436 also integrates VeriTime IEEE 1588, Microsemi's patent-pending timing technology that delivers the industry's most accurate IEEE 1588v2 network timing and synchronization implementation. The VSC7436 CE switch contains four 10/100/1000 Mbps ports (up to two copper ports), four 10/100/1000/2500 Mbps ports, and two 10G ports. VSC7436 provides a rich set of CE switching features such as hierarchical QoS, hardware-based OAM (Ethernet and MPLS/MPLS-TP) and SAM, protection switching, and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE). Using provider bridging (Q-in-Q) and MPLS/MPLS-TP technology, VSC7436 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. VSC7436 supports IPv4/IPv6 Layer-3 (L3) routing and IPv4/IPv6 L3 multicast groups. L3 security features include source guard and unicast Reverse Path Forwarding (uRPF) tasks. VSC7436 supports Microsemi's application programming interface for easy integration with third-party application software. The device also supports Microsemi's CEServices software application, dramatically reducing customer time-to-market.
