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?
