Lucent selects Marvell's switching chips for next-generation metro networking systems

July 2, 2001
July 2, 2001--Marvell, a technology developer of extreme broadband communications solutions, announced that Lucent Technologies has selected Marvell's GalNet-3 converged voice/video/data switch processors for its ADM 16/1c WaveStar SDM Multiplexer and Transport System.

Marvell (Nasdaq:MRVL), a technology developer of extreme broadband communications solutions, announced that Lucent Technologies has selected Marvell's GalNet-3 converged voice/video/data switch processors for its ADM 16/1c WaveStar SDM Multiplexer and Transport System. This is a milestone for Marvell as it marks the Company's entry into the high-end emerging MAN (Metropolitan Area Networks) market.

Based on Lucent's Wavestar ADM 16/1, the Wavestar ADM 16/1c is a compact and cost-effective product for Synchronous Transport Module (STM) applications, capable of multiplexing PDH and SDH bit rates to higher levels up to 2.5 Gb/s and transporting ATM/IP traffic. The system provides direct interfacing to data equipment and flexible bandwidth mapping of Ethernet LAN traffic in the SDH payload. This allows business customers to directly connect to LAN interfaces or interconnect LANs of geographically separated buildings or networks. The system can operate in both synchronous as well as asynchronous environments.

Marvell's GalNet-3 GT-48510A is a member of the GalNet-3 family and provides eight ports of 10/100 Mb/s Layer 3/4/5 switching. The GalNet-3 switch processors support quality of service, bandwidth provisioning, service level agreement (SLA) policing and billing services, as well as full wire-speed IP/IPX routing and full wire-speed Ethernet switching, all of which are required for emerging carrier-class IP networks.
