Ethernet energy-efficiency (EEE) is in demand today. Design engineers increasingly build energy-efficient technologies directly into Ethernet network equipment to deliver energy savings and cost efficiency to end-users. Broadened public awareness, a surge in network usage and adoption of global legislation has increased demand for networking equipment that operates more efficiently and results in a positive impact for businesses, consumers and the environment.

Vitesse was the first Ethernet silicon supplier to deliver green innovative features that provide energy savings of up to 80-percent compared to 1000BASE-T full data rate in any network infrastructure device or consumer premise equipment incorporating its widely adopted SimpliPHY and SparX Ethernet IC portfolios. It continues its commitment to green innovation with its latest generation of EcoEthernet™ functionality.

Vitesse's EcoEthernet 2.0 is the latest generation of its award-winning EEE technology, delivering unprecedented energy-efficiency for Ethernet networks. With its unique features such as ActiPHY automatic link-power down and PerfectReach intelligent cable algorithm, Vitesse's Ethernet ICs now offer IEEE 802.3az idle power savings, temperature monitoring, smart fan control, and adjustable LED brightness.

Regardless of the network speed, EcoEthernet 2.0 optimizes performance for the greenest Enterprise LANs, data centers and carrier networks possible. Coupled with the cost and performance gains of 65-nm CMOS technology, EcoEthernet 2.0 is a competitive differentiator for your products. Together, we can make green the color of your networking innovation.
