Montreal, Canada – December 16, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components founded in 1968 by Robert Miller, recently released an etech ALERT featuring the Ocelot Industrial IoT Ethernet Switch ICs from Microsemi.

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 offers a wide portfolio of Ethernet products including Ethernet Switches: Enterprise, Industrial and Carrier; Ethernet PHYs: 10GbE Fiber, 10Gb OTN, GbE/FE Multirate Copper and Fiber; Software: Device Drivers, Application Software and Board Support Packages; Signal Integrity: Signal Conditioners and Crosspoint Switches; Timing: SyncE and 1588 PLLs; and Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions.

Microsemi recently introduced the Ocelot family of Ethernet switch ICs for the Industrial IoT market. The introduction of this product adds a low-cost, 4-10 port GE / 2.5GE switch family to their overall portfolio. Top applications for the Ocelot family include: Industrial Automation, Smart Grid, Physical Security, Process Control and Intelligent Transportation Systems. In addition, Microsemi offers IStaX Linux application software to enable turnkey Industrial Ethernet managed switch solutions.
