Switching

Marvell switching solutions have been driving a change in networks from the traditional methods of simply moving bits to delivering exciting services and applications. By delivering a stream of technical innovations through a diverse set of fast-growing product lines, Marvell technology is powering the next-generation network.

Service Providers & Carriers

Service providers depend on key innovations around high availability and resiliency to build mission critical networks without compromising on the desired service-level agreements. In addition, intelligence is needed to support and interoperate with legacy transport and circuit switched technologies along with newer last mile access media. Along with the classic access and aggregation systems, new solutions are beginning to use Ethernet as an embedded switching and control fabric. New control plane and security protocols along with a wide variety of interface requirements are also driving the adoption of multi-core CPUs and custom system-on-chip solutions. The Prestera DX and Prestera EX packet processors are an integral part of a complete portfolio of solutions for service providers and carrier systems.

Campus and Enterprise

Modern day enterprise network clients are more heterogeneous than before. Desktops, notebooks, smartphones, and other wireless devices place productivity, collaboration, security, and mobility demands on the network infrastructure. And businesses strive to streamline operations while reducing costs. Marvell’s market-leading, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Prestera DX and Prestera EX packet processors are key building blocks for new enterprise network architectures.

Small Medium Enterprise and Small Medium Business

Simplification and convergence is the foundation of any successful small business solution. With Marvell’s Prestera DX packet processors, the small business owner and solutions provider can enable applications on a single platform, with capabilities previously available only in high-end enterprise solutions. Centralized management simplifies operation and reduces operation cost while increasing productivity.

Datacenter

Data centers are fast becoming a strategic investment as well as a business growth engine for hosting services. A variety of applications ranging from high-speed financial transactions to search engines to high-definition content streaming are placing unprecedented demands on management, flexibility, on-demand compute capabilities, and service-level security. Increased computing capabilities also create power and cooling challenges. The Prestera CX family of 10GbE and 40Gb packet processors are key technologies in the data center of tomorrow.

Connected and Digital Home

Video and audio stream and digital pictures are stored and consumed across the residential network. IP gateways and set-top boxes provide high-bandwidth connectivity to external content. Marvell provides integrated networking devices that are specifically designed for the digital home. Solutions such as networked attached storage, media centers, IP phones, residential firewalls, wireless and wired gateway routers, access points, and standalone switches can be enabled by the Link Street family of switches.
