re: Broadcom rolls two-port 100G switch

@markhahn: it is probably because IB has not been successful in penetrating the datacenter market and remains a niche for HPC clusters. Secondly, switches with CXP/QSFP interconnects have fabric extenders that support downstream 10Gig RJ-45, a great advantage for legacy installations that IB doesn't serve. MP Divakar

hah, very droll! at two-port switch indeed! can the switch actually be configured to any use whose bandwidth sums to less than 240 Gb? such as 1x 100Gb and 14 10Gb? I personally have a hard time understanding the lassitude of the eth market - for those who actually care about latency and bandwidth, the IB world has been delivering 36-port 40 or 56Gb fabrics for quite a while. in what way does a mere 240Gb device "reset the market"?

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
