Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation, a provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, is now a member of the Broadband Forum, a leading industry consortium comprised of over 200 service providers, equipment manufacturers, and other organisations. The Broadband Forum shapes the future of packet-based Ethernet networks by helping service providers optimize their standards-based broadband network deployments.
Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum, welcomed Vitesse Semiconductor, saying: “We look forward to the contributions Vitesse Semiconductor will bring to the Broadband Forum, especially in light of the ever increasing Ethernet IP convergence in broadband networks. Vitesse’s input is welcomed as we evolve packet-based network management specification and optimisation.”
“Vitesse has a rich history developing technologies and solutions for communications networks,” said Martin Nuss, CTO at Vitesse. “As Ethernet permeates global broadband networks, we constantly seek ways to better understand and serve the needs of service providers and their customers. Our technical experts look forward to working with the other Broadband Forum members to standardise the technical specifications and best practices needed for tomorrow’s Ethernet-based broadband networks.”
