RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- LVL7 Systems, Inc., the leading provider of production-ready networking software to communication system manufacturers around the world, has announced FASTPATH® software support for Broadcom’s industry leading StrataXGS III™ switching silicon family.

The latest version of FASTPATH software leverages the advanced capabilities of the Broadcom® StrataXGS III silicon to enable new generations of Ethernet networking systems featuring higher densities, increased speeds, and integrated support for security, IPv6 routing, advanced Quality of Service (QoS), and wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). These new Ethernet systems can deliver new levels of reliability, security and performance for the communication of voice, video and data traffic.

To showcase the networking potential represented by this new software+silicon combination, LVL7 will host demonstrations during Networld+Interop at the LVL7 suite at “THE Hotel at Mandalay Bay.” Highlights of the FASTPATH-StrataXGS III showcase include: fabric stacking over Broadcom HiGig™ stacking technology, front-panel stacking over Gigabit Ethernet network ports, IPv6 routing, Denial of Service prevention, and multicast video with QoS. Also planned are advanced views of new FASTPATH networking software for the small-and-medium business (SMB) marketplace and a FASTPATH-powered chassis-based system, also integrated with Broadcom silicon.

“The rapid integration of LVL7’s FASTPATH software and Broadcom’s StrataXGS® silicon clearly demonstrates continued growth in the working relationship between our companies,” said Dr. Ford G. Tamer, Group Vice President and General Manager of Broadcom’s Networking Infrastructure Group. “The seamless migration from the StrataXGS II to StrataXGS III product family via the Broadcom switch API accelerates our customers’ delivery of advanced switching products to market.”
