Broadcom Introduces StrataDNX™ Switch SoCs for Carrier and Data Center Networks

broadcom-logoThe Broadcom® StrataDNX products are the world’s first to provide 800 Gbps packet processing per device at a high interface bandwidth while integrating a scalable multi-terabit switch fabric, hierarchical traffic manager, external packet buffer memory and advanced packet processing. This unique combination enables equipment makers to deliver network equipment with a higher port density, lower power consumption and greater subscriber scale in a smaller physical system size.

The 28 nanometer (nm) StrataDNX switch family offers the following device options:

  • BCM88370 – A single-chip switch delivering 800 Gbps Ethernet for compact carrier Ethernet and data center top-of-rack switches
  • BCM88670 – A 720 Gbps packet processor and traffic manager with DNX fabric interfaces for carrier Ethernet switch router, data center chassis, and enterprise campus applications
  • BCM88770 – A high density switch fabric device providing 3.6Tbps throughput per device enabling over 100Tbps switching capacity in a single stage system when combined with BCM88670

The StrataDNX family supports pre-standard implementation for 25 and 50 Gigabit Ethernet, enabling direct connectivity to the Broadcom BCM56960 Tomahawk switch SoC, the industry’s first high- density 25/100 Gigabit Ethernet switch for cloud-scale networks.  In addition, the devices support port speeds of up to 400 Gbps, enabling the world’s largest interconnect pipes and roadmap to 400 Gigabit Ethernet. Integrated accelerators for carrier service management provide visibility and control for carrier networks and distributed data centers traversing a wide area network (WAN).

Broadcom’s new switch SoCs are ideal for optical transport, carrier Ethernet, edge and core routers, data center cloud and enterprise campus market segments.
