BCM56060 Series

160Gb/s Enterprise Ethernet Switch

Currently Viewing:

Features an integrated 1.25 GHz ARM® Cortex-A9™ processor, enterprise-scale buffer and table sizes, including Layer 3 functionality.
The BCM56060 family supports VNTAG and 802.1br to implement port-extender functionality. A port extender works in conjunction with a controlling bridge to implement a single point of control for consistent policy enforcement and management of Quality of Service (QoS).
Members of the family include 16x10GE, 24xGE + 4x10GE uplinks, and up to 20x 2.5G I/O


  • HD FastRTV™ channel change
  • UHF remote control for Remote User Interface (RUI) applications
  • USB 2.0 and 3D graphics support to enable dynamic and customizable user interfaces for flipping, rotating and moving images
  • Power management capable of managing and shutting down unused system components in real time


  • Set-Top Boxes
