The BCM56210 is the sixth generation of the highly integrated and cost effective Broadcom StrataXGS product line. It is a single-chip solution with a high-performance 32-bit MIPS CPU and 28/52 GbE ports, where two of the GbE ports can also be run as 2.5 Gb uplinks.The BCM56210 series is a member of the Evalue GbE product line. The BCM56210 series switches integrate a high-performance 32-bit MIPS CPU, ideal for low-cost SoCs in fixed or stackable configurations. The highly integrated BCM56210 series is cost-optimized for system level BOMs. BCM56218 (48 GbE + 4 x 1 Gb/2.5 Gb + integrated CPU) BCM56214 (24 GbE + 4 x 1 Gb/2.5 Gb + integrated CPU) BCM56216 (16 GbE + 4 x 1 Gb/2.5 Gb + integrated CPU)The BCM56210 series incorporates GbE ports that can operate at 10/100/1000 Mbps; two of them can operate at 2.5 Gb, ideal for low cost stacking or uplink. The HGL uplink interface is used to connect to other devices via low-cost standard CAT-7 cables in the BCM56210 series to create a larger stacking system.With high integration and high-port density, the BCM56210 series is ideal for enterprise applications in stand-alone and stackable configurations. The BCM56210 series enables cost-effective Gigabit Ethernet to the desktop in the enterprise. The BCM56210 series is also ideal for embedded switch applications like a blade server switch, ATCA chassis, IPDSLAM, 3G wireless base station, and others. The BCM56210 series supports policy-based L3 forwarding for cost-effective highly manageableenterprise networks.
