    Converged Storage Infrastructure for VMware vSphere 4.1 With Broadcom 10GbE and 1GbE iSCSI C-NICs

    Enterprise and cloud/data center storage requirements, costs, and management investments continue to increase exponentially. With the availability of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) technology and its favorable economics, IT managers are no longer able to justify a completely separate Fibre Channel (FC) capital expenditure (CAPEX)/operation expenditure (OPEX) network investment just for...

    3G Converged-NICs: A Platform for Server I/O to Converged Networks

    Infrastructure consolidation is a key data center initiative because it simplifies operations and saves money. That's why IT organizations routinely standardize infrastructure to consolidate training, deployment, and management. This practice extends to host connectivity where standardizing on one type of hardware platform and one driver image is common for LAN,...

    Connectivity in the Virtualized Datacenter: How to Ensure Next-Generation Services

    Virtualization is changing the economics of the datacenter by making computing resources more flexible and efficient. To capitalize on these benefits, most datacenters must make fundamental changes to their Top-of-Rack or End-of-Row network architectures. A virtualization strategy is more likely to succeed if the performance of the datacenter network can...

    Broadcom Ethernet Network Controller Enhanced Virtualization Functionality

    Networking is an essential component inside a virtualization environment. Similar to other hardware resources found in the system, a network adapter is virtualized to the Virtual Machine (VM). VM vendors utilize hypervisor, also called virtual machine monitor (VMM), based architecture that hides the physical characteristics of the computing platform and...

    Improving the Quality of Communications With Packet Loss Concealment

    In digital transmission of speech and audio signals, lost or corrupted frames and packets can severely degrade audio quality at the receiver. A special technique known as Packet Loss Concealment (PLC) is used to compensate for these quality-robbing effects. This white paper introduces the PLC technologies developed by Broadcom for...
