Broadcom Corp. has introduced a broad portfolio of enterprise switch products that extend the scalability and multilayer intelligence of stackable Ethernet switches for maximum network uptime, security, and ease-of-management.

Superior multilayer intelligence enables faster, more efficient and cost-effective migration to next-generation enterprise and metropolitan networks. With the new StrataXGS II switch family, system vendors can easily leverage their current investments in products based on StrataXGS switches to address the convergence of voice, video, and data traffic in the enterprise.

Today's enterprise networks require reliable, multilayer intelligence at wire-speed performance, enhanced security to prevent sophisticated network attacks, and the ability to scale while reducing the total cost of management. The new Broadcom BCM5675 enhanced StrataXGS II fabric enables systems to scale from 96Gbps to beyond 1Tbps in bandwidth, providing the availability and redundancy that is essential to enterprise applications. Broadcom's BCM5695, BCM5674, and BCM5665 switch processors add advanced multilayer intelligence to the already feature-rich StrataXGS Layer 2/3 switch family.

Service provider networks are migrating from circuit-based access to next-generation packet-based access that will require highly reliable intelligent switching. The new StrataXGS II switch processors enable these services through advanced quality of service (QoS), granular rate limiting, double VLAN tagging and multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) features.

To keep intruders at bay and prevent sophisticated virus attacks in the network, the new BCM5695, BCM5665 and BCM5674 switch processors support multilayer intelligence in the form of integrated security, MAC-based user authentication, and wire-speed access control lists.

The BCM5675, BCM5695, and BCM5665 are sampling to customers today. The BCM5674 will be sampling in the third quarter of 2004. Pricing is available upon request.
