We need a switch that have at least 17 ports with at least 16 or them with SERDES. Seems like only parts that will meet this requirement are those with very high port count and embedded processor.
Please recommend for suitable BRCM switch to fit this requirement.
Suggest can you double check the BCM5396 Switch?
BCM5396 supports 16 SerDes giga port and one GMII/RGMII interface connect with external CPU for management port.
Please double check it if it meets within your requirement.
BCM5396 switch doesnt fit customer's requirement.
Customer wants 17 SGMII ports or 17 RGMII ports.
They dont want management port.
Which model can fulfill their requirement?
Per your updated descriptions and requirement, currently we do not have single switch chip supports 17 SGMII/SerDes port or 17 RGMII ports.
Suggest please double check with CSG support team if their chip support your customer requirement.
Thanks for the info.
Can you share with me CSG support team email address for me to drop them an email to check?
Suggest firstly please check your local distributor or below website for the contact information.
