Next-Gen Enterprise

The Challenge of Workforce Mobility and BYOD

As the number of connected devices and emergence of cloud-based applications continues to climb, demand for higher-bandwidth enterprise networks is growing at a rapid pace. With the trend toward Bring Your Own Device (or BYOD) in the workplace, enterprise IT managers must adapt with scalable, affordable, secure platforms in a unified infrastructure.

Broadcom's new StrataXGS® BCM56340 Series delivers a broad range of innovative features that simplify the provisioning and monitoring of mobile user traffic, while providing secure, seamless and high-speed connectivity to the data center and cloud-computing storage resources.
