Broadcom boosts performance of NAS devices with new SoCs

TAIWAN: Broadcom Corp. announced a new line of high-performance processors for wired and wireless network attached storage (NAS) devices and routers.

The StrataGX BCM5862X Series offers a 10x increase in performance with the ARM-based FlexSPARX engine,1 while integrating enhanced security and storage features to support hybrid cloud services. The new offering also delivers Gigabit connectivity speeds on wired and wireless connections with support for 5G WiFi, based on the latest IEEE 802.11ac standard. Broadcom will preview the technology at Computex in Taipei, Taiwan on June 4-8, 2013.

With the latest consumer and small-to-medium business (SMB) NAS devices supporting secure hybrid cloud storage while enabling secure remote access of files or media content, the new StrataGX Series delivers highly secure anytime, anywhere access via a line-rate encrypted connection.

More users are connecting to their content through a combination of cloud and personal storage, with Gartner predicting that by 2016, more than a third of consumers' digital content will be stored in the cloud. Broadcom's StrataGX devices deliver highly secure and faster connections to the cloud via a wired or wireless network to allow the rapid flow of multimedia information.

"Our latest StrataGX portfolio expansion integrates an innovative FlexSPARX engine along with dual SATA interfaces to address the unique requirements of NAS devices," said Ed Redmond, Broadcom VP and GM, Compute and Connectivity. "With our comprehensive StrataGX solution that includes reference security software and hardware acceleration features, we can now deliver secure access to consumer content -- whether stored in the cloud or stored locally in the home."
