BCM53115

Smart GbE Switch

The BCM53115 architecture is the optimal solution for consumer switching needs with its support for high-performance line rate capabilities and ability to identify and prioritize different data packet types within the switch while simultaneously assigning voice packets a higher priority for outbound communications.

The BCM53115 is poised to drive GbE into the unmanaged and Smart switch, WLAN router, and CPE/Gateway markets with its comprehensive Layer 2 feature set, support for both DSL/cable modem and WLAN connectivity, and an industry-leading 5 Gb of switching capacity-all on a single chip.
