Broadcom's Ethernet Club Revealed (Sort of)

Broadcom Corp. (Nasdaq: BRCM) still can't divulge most of its Ethernet-chip customers, and most of its customers won't admit they use Broadcom.

Yet at Interop this week, there were these big ol' racks with a bunch of different vendors' equipment in them. A bunch of systems names, just hanging out with Broadcom for no reason.

In case it's not obvious enough: These almost certainly represented OEMs that are using Broadcom, collected in one not-so-hidden place. Broadcom couldn't officially comment, of course.

Here's who was there. Any surprises?

Finally...the marketing reason behind Extreme's choice of using eye-catching color!

Don't forget Juniper's QFX3500.


Arista is actually on the record talking about the fact that they're using Broadcom's Trident+ chip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...


And Arista's 7500 series is based on Dune (acquired by Broadcom) chips: http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/20...

Cool - thanks for the input, everyone.


Are there any notable Marvell design wins we should be talking about?
