Broadcom Ltd has begun volume production of its series of quad-core 64bit 2GHz ARM v8 Cortex-A57 communication processors aimed at various networking applications such as virtual CPE (vCPE) and NFV appliances, 10G service routers and gateways, control plane processing for Ethernet switches, and network attached storage (NAS). The StrataGX BCM5871x offers advanced computing, networking and virtualisation functions on a single SoC with the industry's first quad-core A57 CPU delivering 34,000DMIPS below 10W.

Next generation customer premise equipment (CPE) use virtualisation to collapse multiple dedicated appliances into single virtual CPE (vCPE) systems. These vCPE platforms run several virtual network functions (VNFs) such as vFirewalls and vRouters simultaneously in software. This allows service providers to more rapidly deploy services, thus increasing their revenues, and also reduces both their Capex and Opex by consolidating equipment and reducing maintenance costs. The BCM5871x integrates a server-class network interface controller with virtualisation, stateless offloads and packet processing capabilities, which significantly improves overall system performance when running multiple VNFs on chip, providing an industry leading vCPE platform.

Broadcom has begun shipping volume production quantities of the BCM58712 and BCM58713 and is accepting orders for these products.
