In a highly digital world where every sphere of human action
is being digitalized,
) has been rigorously innovating new products and technologies to
stay ahead in a competitive industry.
The latest addition to the new products from Broadcom is a
multi-core communications processor, named XLP900 Series. This
processor carries by far the highest speed available in the
market, being manufactured in 28 nanometers (nm). Broadcom has
taken this initiative keeping in mind the growth potential these
high-speed processors bear due to the availability of high-speed
4G LTE/LTE Advanced services.
Being the first market player to offer such a high-speed
processor, Broadcom is likely to secure a larger market share
while attaining a leadership position in communication
technologies. Apart from having a first-mover advantage, this
XLP900 Series also offers high security, efficiency and
flexibility in its operations.
Broadcom also achieved another break-through by introducing a
product in the video network segment. Broadcom is in the process
of launching a headless video gateway for home internet protocol
(IP) and Quadrature amplitude video networks. As opposed to the
headed gateways, the headless gateways can serve without being
attached to the video outlet like a TV set.
This technology uses other technologies such as Multimedia
over Coax Alliance (MoCA) and Wi-Fi to transmit videos to devices
such as tablets, smart TVs and IP client set-top boxes. The TV
service providers can thus transmit videos to a number of
locations chosen with a single headless gateway, reducing
expenses. In addition to high-quality videos at a lower
bandwidth, the device also allows an all-IP video experience.
Both these products are still under sampling phase. Broadcom
currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Other stocks worth a
look in the semiconductor communications industry are
Nitto Denko Corporation
), carrying a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy); whereas
Marvell Technology Group Ltd.
) carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) each.
