Broadcom Unveils Gigabit Ethernet Switches For Unified Communications

The StrataXGS devices will give developers an effective tool to deploy secure unified communications infrastructures, Broadcom said.

Broadcom on Wednesday introduced a line of Gigabit Ethernet network switches that are designed to help businesses deal with the security issues and traffic jams caused by the rush to unified communications.

Based on 65-nanometer technology, the StrataXGS 200 series enables providers to pack more memory and logic into a single piece of silicon. In addition to reducing systems costs for data centers, service providers, and the local area networks they utilize, the new StrataXGS devices will give developers an effective tool to deploy secure unified communications infrastructures, Broadcom said.

Noting that the move to 65 nanometers, from 90- and 130-nanometer processes, provides obvious gains in lower power consumption and smaller component size, Broadcom added that the new process enables it to achieve higher yields and higher levels of integration.

"The series also integrates a 32-bit MIPS CPU processor optimized for running demanding network management applications," Broadcom said in a statement. "Advanced [quality of service] capabilities, including sophisticated metering, statistics and traffic management, prepare the network for the inevitable explosion of voice and video content."

Broadcom said the StrataXGS 200 series is the industry's first 65-nanometer Gigabit Ethernet switches.
