Broadcom Showcases Industry-Leading Hyperscale Solutions at the 2022 Open Compute Project Global Summit

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Broadcom Inc. (NASDAQ:AVGO) today announced its continued commitment to open computing by demonstrating a host of industry-first solutions addressing AI/ ML workloads at scale at the 2022 OCP Global Summit, being held October 18-20 at the San Jose Convention Center. A long-time supporter of open, standards-based technologies, Broadcom is dedicated to developing high-performance, scalable connectivity solutions optimized for AI/ML in hyperscale data centers.

“Our broad industry-leading portfolio exemplifies our significant contribution into open standards, clearly demonstrating Broadcom is passionately committed to OCP and empowering this burgeoning community,” said Charlie Kawwas, Ph. D., president, Semiconductor Solutions Group, Broadcom. “Broadcom is driving the innovation and standardization of RoCE congestion control as an open technology supporting AI/ML versus other methods that are proprietary. Our industry-leading, standards-based solutions will benefit the demands of hyperscale workloads at scale.”

Recently, Broadcom announced the availability of the industry’s first open end-to-end networking solution optimized for Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over converged Ethernet (RoCE). Hyperscaler and enterprise data center operators can now deploy fully optimized systems, using open-standard RDMA. Connected by Broadcom, RoCE-optimized systems enable Cloud, high performance computing, and AI/ML providers to deploy industry-leading, ultra-low latency Ethernet.

Having a strong commitment to networking, Broadcom also recently introduced the Tomahawk 5 Ethernet switch. Critical to enabling efficient use of the massively shared infrastructure in large data centers, Tomahawk 5 provides AI/ML workload virtualization with features such as single-pass VxLAN routing and bridging. As one of the industry’s largest contributors to SAI and the SONiC network operating systems, Broadcom is contributing specifications for features enabling AI/ML deployments to the community. The Tomahawk reference design will be showcased on the show floor. Broadcom also will be highlighting the industry’s first 5nm 1.6T (2x800G) MACSec/IPSec PHY BCM85344, which extends our contribution to PAI use cases.
