Broadcom Introduces World's Most Advanced Switch SoC for SMB Networks

Broadcom Corporation, a leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced the StrataConnectSeries of switch system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions for small-to-medium business (SMB) networks. Broadcom's new SoCs combine Layer 2 and Layer 3 (L2/L3) switching, 16 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) physical layer transceivers (PHYs), 10 GbE and high-performance central processing unit (CPU) onto a single piece of silicon, delivering enterprise-class features to the SMB network.

Many SMBs are adopting cloud services and deploying advanced IP-based applications. In fact, SMB spending on public cloud services is expected to grow to $32B by 2015.3 While this helps companies reduce capital expenditures and lower equipment maintenance costs, it requires more sophisticated networking capabilities and stringent security controls. Moreover, high bandwidth applications and next generation high-speed servers are driving the penetration of 10G in SMB networks. The StrataConnect Series allows customers to deliver "cloud-ready" networks and enable advanced high bandwidth applications that drive productivity.

The new StrataConnect Series includes advanced features for tighter security and application-based prioritization. The integrated CPU can scale processing power as necessary and includes added intelligence to enable cloud-based network management. In addition, advanced power management features deliver power savings that go beyond Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) to reduce energy costs.

"For small to medium businesses, cloud services have quickly become a critical way to deliver leading technology without the complexity of big IT," said Derek Lam, NETGEAR VP of Engineering, SMB Switching and Wireless. "As a result, scalable switching solutions with advanced features are now more important than ever. It is essential that semiconductor suppliers address these trends with products optimized for SMB networks."
