NetXtreme E-Series Single-Port 100G Adapter

Currently Viewing:

As virtualization technologies continue to expand server CPU demand, network performance requirements scale accordingly. This growth demands a new breed of Ethernet connectivity solutions.  The BCM57454 NetXtreme® E-Series Ethernet controller ASIC is designed for high-performance computing, networking and storage applications that include machine learning, network function virtualization (NFV), and enterprise and cloud storage. Expanding upon previous generation 25G/50G Ethernet controllers, the BCM57454 combines a high bandwidth Ethernet controller with a unique set of highly optimized hardware acceleration engines that enhance network performance.
