Today at Cisco Live!, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Broadcom Corporation unveiled its fiber channel over Ethernet (FCoE) offload solution on a converged network adapter (CNA) platform with performance speeds of up to 1.7 million input/output operations per second.

Enterprise data centers demand 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) bandwidth and FCoE connectivity to support server virtualization, consolidation and convergence. Broadcom’s FCoE-based converged network solutions allow IT professionals to unite data and storage networks on a common 10GbE fabric, while reducing the cost of power, cooling and cabling.

Broadcom’s fully qualified FCoE solution, as tested by EMC E-Lab, expands multiprotocol support including Level 2 (L2) networking, Network Attached Storage (NAS), Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) offload, and now FCoE offload connectivity.

Broadcom has also successfully completed extensive EMC E-Lab interoperability testing with EMC’s full suite of storage arrays along with Cisco Nexus switches, Cisco Unified Computing System, Brocade 8000 switches, and Dell Blade servers.
