Data Center

Broadcom understands that the equipment deployed in Internet and corporate data centers must provide high-port density and a large quantity of high bandwidth ports to manage converged compute, data and storage traffic. The next generation data center powered by Broadcom employs a converged 10GbE fabric and promotes energy-efficiency, manageability and a flexible use of computing resources through network virtualization. Future data centers will look toward faster speeds of 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit Ethernet to continue to keep pace with increasing demand for bandwidth.
