Ethernet Switches and Switch Fabric Devices

Broadcom offers a wide selection of switch and switch fabric products from Fast-Ethernet to 2.5 Gigabit-Ethernet Switches.

Roboswitch Ethernet Switch Solutions
Offered in 5-24 port configurations supporting both Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), Broadcom's Roboswitch Ethernet Switching solutions are highly integrated, cost effective, and smart-managed based on a field-proven, industry-leading architecture. These Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet solutions combine all of the functions of a high-speed switch system including packet buffers, PHY transceivers, media access controllers (MACs), address management, port-based rate control, and a non-blocking switch fabric into a single CMOS device.

StrataConnect™ Switch Solutions
StrataConnect 16-24 port Gigabit switches represent the industry's most highly integrated, feature rich and cost-effective connectivity solution. The family also includes unmanaged software which provides a codesize-optimized and memory-footprint-optimized software solution for bringing up StrataConnect silicon when no dedicated internal or external CPUs are present; this offering essentially initializes the silicon, sets up registers and PHY drivers, while enabling forwarding without the need for an operating system.
