Pulsecom Selects Vitesse for Network Edge Ethernet Access Family

CARRIER ETHERNET APAC 2012 – Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced that Pulsecom is using Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Switch Engines in their next-generation Ethernet Access and Network Interface Device (NID) platform for broadband Ethernet service delivery in Access and Edge applications. Pulsecom, a subsidiary of Hubbell Incorporated (NYSE: HUBA, HUBB), selected Vitesse’s devices for their CE 2.0-compliant SuperG access/aggregation platforms, designed to support intelligent service-oriented networking capabilities for mobile backhaul, business services, as well as access and aggregation network and demarcation applications.

“We were looking for a solution with the intelligence and features to broaden our Carrier Ethernet offerings,” said Marco Mascitto, business development director at Pulsecom. “Vitesse’s devices were ideal for our SuperG Carrier Ethernet family with their highly accurate, integrated IEEE1588v2 timing and other Carrier-grade capabilities such as service aware classification, MEF-compliant policers, and ring and linear protection. This allowed us to quickly bring to market an advanced solution that delivers the intelligence, service availability and end-to-end performance management features required by today’s service providers.”

Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet Switch Engine family features VeriTime™, Vitesse’s unique timing technology that delivers the industry’s most accurate IEEE1588v2 timing implementation. The family also brings advanced Quality of Service (QoS) and Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) support, critical for service providers implementing multi-service delivery for mobile backhaul, cloud computing and business applications.

“Vitesse’s VeriTime technology enables customers such as Pulsecom to meet the stringent timing needs for Edge and Access broadband service delivery,” said Uday Mudoi, director of product marketing at Vitesse. “We remain committed to strategically advancing Ethernet with Carrier-class packet processing and timing for IP-based networking.”

Storage administrators find themselves walking a line between meeting employees’ demands to use public cloud storage services, and their organizations’ need to store information on-premises for security, performance, cost and compliance reasons. However, as file sharing protocols like CIFS and NFS continue to lose their relevance, simply relying only on a NAS-based environment creates inefficiencies that hurt productivity and the bottom line. IT wants to implement cloud storage it can purchase a...
After a couple of false starts, cloud-based desktop solutions are picking up steam, driven by trends such as BYOD and pervasive high-speed connectivity. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, cut through the hype and the acronyms, and discussed the emergence of full-featured cloud workspaces that do for the desktop what cloud infrastructure did for the server. He also discussed VDI vs DaaS, implementation strategies and evaluation criteria.
I’ve been thinking a bit about microservices (μServices) recently. My immediate reaction is to think: “Isn’t this just yet another new term for the same stuff, Web Services->SOA->APIs->Microservices?” Followed shortly by the thought, “well yes it is, but there are some important differences/distinguishing factors.” Microservices is an evolutionary paradigm born out of the need for simplicity (i.e., get away from the ESB) and alignment with agile (think DevOps) and scalable (think Containerizati...
There’s a lot of discussion around managing outages in production via the likes of DevOps principles and the corresponding software development lifecycles that does enable higher quality output from development, however, one cannot lay all blame for “bugs” and failures at the feet of those responsible for coding and development. As developers incorporate features and benefits of these paradigm shift, there is a learning curve and a point of not-knowing-what-is-not-known. Sometimes, the only way ...
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
How can you compare one technology or tool to its competitors? Usually, there is no objective comparison available. So how do you know which is better? Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA? Java EE or Spring? C# or Java? All you can usually find is a holy war and biased comparisons on vendor sites. But luckily, sometimes, you can find a fair comparison. How does this come to be? By having it co-authored by the stakeholders. The binary repository comparison matrix is one of those rare resources. It is edite...
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at Dev...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...

I read an insightful article this morning from Bernard Golden on DZone discussing the DevOps conundrum facing many enterprises today – is it better to build your own DevOps tools or go commercial? For Golden, the question arose from his observations at a number of DevOps Days events he has attended, where typically the audience is composed of startup professionals: “I have to say, though, that a typical feature of most presentations is a recitation of the various open source products and compo...
