Industry's First 2.5G Managed Ethernet Switch Reference Design For 802.11ac Applications, Enables 50% Lower Power/Costs Than 10GCTIA SUPER MOBILITY WEEK - LAS VEGAS - According to Forrester Research, nearly two-thirds of all data traffic will move from wired to wireless connections by 2017. BYOD and user demand in the Enterprise are driving the next wave of network upgrades to deliver on the Gigabit capabilities of 802.11ac. To enable these WLAN upgrades within existing infrastructures, Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier, Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, and RubyTech announced availability of the industry's first 2.5G managed switch reference design for 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi applications.Based on Vitesse's recently introduced SparX-IV™ Ethernet switch family (VSC7442, VSC7444 and VSC7448) and software SDK, the 2.5G turnkey reference design is ideal for Wave 2 802.11ac deployments, which can support access point uplink speeds up to 1.3G into the Enterprise LAN. Upgrading 802.11ac access aggregation to 2.5G is the optimal choice for Enterprises, delivering up to 50% lower power and cost versus 10G. "2.5G is really about giving Enterprises flexibility and finding the easiest and most cost-effective way to connect the new .11ac access points within current infrastructures using Cat5 cable," said Larry O'Connell, product marketing director for Vitesse. "Access equipment with 10G uplinks is a clear cost and power overkill. Vitesse and RubyTech's joint 2.5G reference design provides Enterprises a painless migration path to fully benefit from .11ac's Gigabit speeds, while avoiding a complete network upgrade."Vitesse at CTIA Super Mobility Week Vitesse will showcase its 2.5G managed switch reference design and latest IC solutions and technologies for base station and mobile backhaul applications in Booth #4163, Mobile Backhaul Pavilion at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas from September 9-11, 2014. CTO Martin Nuss will speak at 4G World, co-located with CTIA Super Mobility Week, in the Enterprise Mobility track, "4G Mobile Network and Device Security" session on September 11 at 2:15 pm local time.

Newest enhancement to WatchGuard Dimension visibility solution allows admins to see policy misconfigurations and optimise traffic9 September 2014 - WatchGuard® Technologies has announced the industry's first interactive, integrated policy mapping capability for Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) appliances. Available in the latest version of its real-time network security visibility solution, WatchGuard Dimension™, Policy Map provides a comprehensive view of traffic flow and policy impact across the entire network, with the ability to quickly filter or drill down for additional detail and analysis. Security policies are central to firewall operation and according to a 2014 Verizon Report[1], there's a strong correlation between a badly configured firewall and the likelihood of a security breach. Dimension Policy Map aggregates disparate information about policies, interfaces, applications and related traffic flows, and presents it in a simple, intuitive and interactive visualisation dashboard. It can be used for policy audit, to find active and misconfigured policies, identify unusual or abnormal traffic patterns, visually check if firewall policies or configuration changes have the intended impact on traffic patterns and much more."Security policies are the brains of a firewall and dictate the effectiveness of any firewall configuration and directly impact our customers' network protection," said Dave R. Taylor, vice president of corporate and product strategy at WatchGuard Technologies. "Given the tremendous customer uptake for Dimension on a global basis, we recognised an opportunity to improve their security management and help eliminate errors by giving network administrators a powerful tool for visualising policy analysis. They can now see policies like never before and instantly evaluate the impact on the network or user."Beyond Policy Map, the latest update to Dimension brings a variety of additional insightful reporting and new dashboard features that includes information on zero-day malware, details about website visits and traffic disposition, enhanced navigation, and consolidated CA certificate management. And it comes free on any WatchGuard UTM or NGFW platform.WatchGuard Dimension has been gaining rapid market adoption since it was first launched in late 2013. Customers have used the network security visibility tool to monitor and gain critical and timely insights about network security threats, bandwidth and Internet usage, as well as related traffic trends.
