The VSC7431 – the new one in the StaX-III™ family


VITESSE SEMICONDUCTOR CORPORATION a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, expanded its widely deployed E-StaX-III™ Enterprise Ethernet switch family with the VSC7431, the industry's lowest power and scalable 28-port Gigabit Ethernet (GE) switch with Layer 3 (L3) managed routing capabilities.

The VSC7431 superior technology makes it easy for customers to deliver fully managed L2 switching and L3 routing support while realizing unprecedented BOM cost savings

Targeted at high-performance small and medium Enterprise network applications, the VSC7431 demands 50% less power while integrating must-have features for the Enterprise market. Up to 50% more packet buffer memory and a significantly larger L3 router table. The VSC7431 is also the industry's only GE solution scalable to 56 ports of direct connectivity to 100Mbps and 1Gbps optical modules, using only two switch chips in a single design.

VSC7431: Feature Rich with Compatible Software API

The VSC7431's support of 1000 IPv4 host or prefix entries is double that of the nearest competitive device, while the support of 128 router legs or 128 IPv4 multicast groups is similarly twice the size of the competition's 64 legs and groups. The switch integrates a MIPS CPU for supporting control-plane tasks, and uses a common software API to VITESSE'S existing family of SparX-III™ and E-Stax-III™ switches, allowing design reuse and a faster time-to-market for customers.

Complemented by VITESSE'S SimpliPHY™ products, such as the industry's highest density 12-port PHY, the VSC8512, VITESSE'S bundled GE solutions lower overall BOM cost and board real estate compared to the competition.
