17 ports switch

Hi, 

 

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. 

 

Thanks.

Re: 17 ports switch

Hi, 

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.

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi Ryan, 

 

BCM5396 switch doesnt fit customer's requirement. 

BCM5396 supports 16 SerDes giga port and one GMII/RGMII interface connect with external CPU for management port.

Customer wants 17 SGMII ports or 17 RGMII ports. 

They dont want management port. 

Which model can fulfill their requirement? 

 

Thanks.

Re: 17 ports switch

Hi,

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,

Ryan
