Broadcom Corp., a manufacturer of broadband communications ICs, has acquired a substantial portion of the assets of Gadzoox Networks Inc., a provider of storage networking technology.

With the addition of the Gadzoox technology to its product portfolio, Broadcom now has a complete suite of networking products for the storage industry including multiport gigabit fiber channel serdes, GbE and iSCSI controllers, ServerWorks SATA controllers and I/O bridges, multiprotocol gigabit switch fabrics, and SiByte broadband network processors.

"Availability of proven Fibre Channel technology is a significant barrier to entry in the storage networking industry," said Alan E. Ross, president and CEO of Broadcom. "The acquisition of Gadzoox technology and the company's experienced engineering team will allow Broadcom to change the economic dynamics of storage networking."
