Link Street SOHO

The Marvell Link Street family of integrated networking devices are specifically designed for the Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) and Small to Medium Business (SMB) markets.  Link Street Gigabit and Fast Ethernet switches offer ideal switch configurations and functionality for products where cost, ease-of-use and flexibility are of paramount importance.

Link Street Gigabit Switches integrate a high-performance non-blocking gigabit switch fabric with four or eight priority queues, a high-speed lookup engine, multiple GMII Gigabit Ethernet interface ports, and 1 or 2 Mb of packet memory. Other advanced features include IEEE 802.1p/IPv4/IPv6 traffic classification and port-based VLANs.

The Link Street Fast Ethernet switches integrate multiple independent Fast Ethernet Media Access Controllers (MACs), Fast Ethernet or Gigibit Ethernet PHYs, a high-speed non-blocking switch fabric, a high-performance address lookup engine, and embedded frame memory. These devices enable PCs and IP phones to connect through a broadband Internet access pipeline (DSL modem, cable modem, or fiber Wide Area Network [WAN]) to the Internet, with all ports switched at wire full speed.

The Marvell SOHO switches with integrated PHYs build upon proven Marvell physical layer (PHY) technology, incorporate the advanced features such as smart power management, which dramatically reduces power consumption by more than 50% and Virtual Cable Tester (VCT™) technology, which performs cable diagnostics to reduce overall network support costs.  These enhanced features make these switches ideal for applications such as standalone switches, media converters, IP phones, firewall appliances, wireless and wired gateway routers, and wireless access points and industrial automation.

For applications that require extended temperature range support, such as aggregators, gateways and network terminals that are placed outdoors and are subjected to harsh environments, Marvell also offers a range of Industrial Grade switches that can operate between -40°C and +85°C.
