Broadcom Announces New Trident-II+ Series to Deliver Enhanced 10G Ethernet to Enterprise Data Centers

Broadcom Corporation announced the next-generation of its StrataXGS Trident Ethernet switch portfolio, the Trident-II+ Series. Optimized to meet the bandwidth, scalability and efficiency demands of 10GbE virtualized data centers, the highly integrated devices offer 1.28 terabit per second (Tbps) switching performance, 30% lower power and double the performance for data center virtualization overlays, such as VXLAN. Broadcom's Trident-II+ Series enables networking OEMs to deliver a full portfolio of enterprise-optimized, feature-rich, high-density 10GbE top-of-rack (ToR), blade and aggregation switches to serve this transition. Built on Broadcom's StrataXGS architecture, the 28 nanometer (nm) Trident-II+ Series provides a simple, drop-in power and efficiency improvement for the switch silicon, with a comprehensive set of feature and performance upgrades. Designed for enterprise data centers of all sizes, the Trident-II+ Series delivers the industry's most comprehensive and field-proven feature set for network virtualization. This includes single-pass VXLAN routing that doubles gateway performance in all network topologies, as well as support for pre-standard GENEVE overlays. Power consumption and cooling is also a top priority in modern data centers. The Trident II+ Series reduces power dissipation of existing Trident-II designs throughout the network - by up to 30% for each typical ToR switch chipset. For an enterprise data center hosting 300 ToR switches, this can lead to annual power savings of well over 100 megawatt hours (MWh), resulting in greater IT energy efficiency and lower operating expenses.
