Software-Defined Networking Solutions

In recent years, an explosion of data and services has stretched traditional networks to their limits. Networking architectures have evolved to support requirements of high bandwidth, low latency and network agility. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies and industry initiatives aim to reduce operational and capital expenses for data center and service provider operators.


SDN is an innovative networking paradigm that uses approaches such as decoupled control and data planes, centralized control and intelligence, virtualized infrastructure and programmability of network elements and disaggregation of networking switches.

Broadcom's industry-leading infrastructure and networking products portfolio provides reference designs and hardware/software building blocks that enable advanced SDN implementations, targeting data center and carrier/service provider applications.
