Broadcom Unveils New Line of Enterprise Switch SoCs For Growing BYOD and Mobility Requirements New StrataXGS® Products Deliver Breakthrough Innovation for Managing the Agile Enterprise PR Newswire IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- News Highlights: oAddresses evolving network requirements for secure unified wired, wireless and cloud connectivity oPowerful integration combines gigabit Ethernet switching/routing, CPU subsystem and 40G stacking oCustom engines deliver IP firewall, WLAN controller and network virtualization functionality oBreadth of device choices optimized for mid-size enterprise and large-scale Fortune 500 networks Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced a new line of switch system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions optimized to address workforce mobility and evolving network requirements in the enterprise. Broadcom's new StrataXGS BCM56340 Series delivers a broad range of innovative features that simplify the provisioning and monitoring of mobile user traffic while providing secure, seamless and high-speed connectivity to the data center and cloud-computing storage resources. For more news, visit Broadcom's Newsroom. As the number of connected devices and emergence of cloud-based applications continues to climb, demand for higher-bandwidth enterprise networks is growing at a rapid pace. With the trend toward bring-your-own-device (BYOD) in the workplace, enterprise IT managers must adapt with scalable, affordable, secure platforms in a unified infrastructure. "IT organizations are under increasing pressure to provide access to applications and data from anywhere, at any time, via any device,"said Matthias Machowinski, Infonetics Directing Analyst, Enterprise Networks and Video. "Bandwidth, integration and intelligent security features that scale to a large number of users are among the top requirements. Broadcom's latest innovation for the enterprise should strengthen the company's position as a leading supplier in this space." Built on the proven StrataXGS architecture, the BCM56340 Series delivers more than 120 Gbps of line-rate performance with large forwarding tables, to meet the needs of a growing mobile user base in enterprise campus networks. App-IQ security intelligence distributes enterprise firewall capabilities among all access ports, eliminating network bottlenecks and delivering increased application visibility. Control and provisioning of wireless access points (CAPWAP) tunnel port capabilities provide seamless unified wireless/wireline integration. These highly integrated products combine a 48-port gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switching core, a dual-core ARM A9 CPU, and energy-efficient 10GbE SerDes uplinks into a single chip solution. "Mobile device use in the enterprise continues to scale at a dramatic rate, straining the network in terms of bandwidth, data security, and connectivity to services. IT managers are seeking solutions to enable a considerably more agile and secure network," said Ram Velaga, Broadcom Vice President and General Manager of the Core Switching Group. "Our new StrataXGS devices are designed from the ground up to address these challenges, delivering maximum stackable port density and performance, distributed security intelligence, and unified switching across LANs, WLANs, and data centers – all in a single chip solution."
