Ethernet and POE Solutions

Globally, networks are undergoing a massive transition. For most networks, this means a migration to packet-based Ethernet. Originally conceived for use in Local Area Networks (LANs), Ethernet is the dominant networking technology for today's IP traffic in carrier and enterprise networks. Ethernet is also increasingly the common denominator in a myriad of other networking applications such as industrial process control, smart grid energy distribution, intelligent transportation, automotive, storage and more.

Microsemi is an innovator and thought leader in Ethernet technologies with a broad portfolio – including Ethernet ICs, systems, software and ecosystem solutions – specifically architected for Ethernet networking applications in multiple settings including carrierenterprise and industrial IoT.

  • ICs & Systems: Microsemi’s flexible Ethernet solutions portfolio includes ICs such as Ethernet switches and PHYs, and Power over Ethernet (PoE), complemented by signal conditioners and timing and synchronization solutions. Unlike traditional Ethernet switch IC providers, Microsemi focuses on low bandwidth, high feature IC switch architectures that deliver sizable low power, reliability and scalability advantages. For network infrastructure deployment, Microsemi also offers systems such as PoE midspans / injectors for powering indoor and outdoor deployment scenarios, as well as grandmasters and network time servers.
  • Software: To reduce your development costs and time to market, Microsemi’s comprehensive software choices include IEEE 1588 timing, as well as mature, flexible and fully supported Ethernet software stacks.
  • Ecosystem: Through Microsemi’s ecosystem, customers may also access our MEF CE 2.0-certifiable ODM turnkey solutions.
