Vitesse is a technology leader with over three decades in business, focused on designing innovative ICs for Carrier and Enterprise networking, and increasingly, industrial Internet of Things (IoT) networking. Vitesse IC solutions enable the fastest-growing network infrastructure markets including Mobile Access/IP Edge, Cloud Computing, SMB/SME Enterprise and IoT Networking.
Globally, networks are undergoing a massive transition. For most networks, this means a migration to packet-based Ethernet technology. Originally conceived as a Local Area Networking (LAN) technology, Ethernet is the dominant networking technology for today's IP traffic in Carrier and Enterprise networks. Ethernet is now also proliferating to a myriad of other networking applications such as Industrial Process Control, Smart-Grid Energy Distribution, Transportation, Automotive, Storage and more.
To address the technical and operational challenges driven by the explosive growth of video bandwidth requirements in Carrier networks, Vitesse Ethernet switch, physical layer and signal integrity ICs, are widely used in Mobile Access equipment including base stations, small cells, fiber and microwave wireless backhaul, as well as Cloud Access equipment such as network interface devices (NIDs) and Ethernet access devices (EADs) used for delivering business services.
Like the Carrier networks, Enterprises also face networking challenges for voice and data services within the organization itself. Increasingly, Enterprise networks also include broadband connections to Carrier networks for the broader communication of voice and data outside the Enterprise, particularly for access to cloud-based services. Vitesse Ethernet switch, physical layer and signal integrity ICs, as well as its Intellectual Property cores, address a variety of Enterprise network equipment including blade server and data center switches and routers, cloud-managed switches, Layer 2 and Layer 3 managed Ethernet switches, high-density routers, HDTV video, storage and more.
While proprietary protocols have long dominated networking communications within industrial IoT applications, the increased networking and higher bandwidth requirements of IoT networks makes Ethernet the ideal upgrade path. Vitesse is leveraging its Ethernet expertise and the R&D synergies between IoT networking and its traditional Carrier and Enterprise markets to deliver a portfolio of Ethernet switch and physical layer ICs for Ethernet-based IoT networks such as industrial process control, smart grid energy distribution, transportation, automotive, and others.
