CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions mobilizing Internet of Things (IoT) networks, introduced the latest generation of its energy efficient SimpliPHY Gigabit Ethernet (GE) portfolio -- VSC8501, VSC8502, and VSC8514 single, dual and quad PHYs -- targeted at IoT networks transitioning to Gigabit Ethernet speeds. Featuring Vitesse's Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) EcoEthernet 2.0 technology, the new physical layer transceivers are ideal for a variety of low-power, small-form factor IoT devices, such as digital signage and IP cameras.
Ethernet is the most widely used networking interface in today's wired and wireless networks, with virtually all data, voice and video traffic traversing multiple Ethernet links. Emerging IoT networks are transforming everyday devices into a new category of sensor-laden intelligent end-points that can communicate and process information. According to BI Intelligence, IoT devices will grow from 1.9 billion today to an estimated nine billion devices by 2018. Vitesse is well positioned in this expanding market, as many of the high-value capabilities that Vitesse developed for the Carrier Ethernet market, such as its nanosecond-accurate VeriTime IEEE 1588v2 timing synchronization and IntelliSec IEEE 802.1AE MACsec security encryption technology, will be imperative in IoT networks as they adopt Gigabit Ethernet speeds.
"Vitesse is already experiencing strong demand for network infrastructure equipment designs that will support IoT traffic," said David Grant, senior product marketing manager at Vitesse. "With the VSC8501, VSC8502 and VSC8514, we broaden our market reach into industrial IoT applications using low-power, small-form factor end-point devices connected via Gigabit Ethernet."
