Broadcom to eat Brocade?

By Shaun Nichols, 31 Oct 2016

Brocade could become the next networking giant to agree to an acquisition deal.

A report from Bloomberg cites sources familiar in reporting that the company is in "advanced talks" with Broadcom to hammer out a deal, though the negotiations are not final and could still fall apart.

The deal would give Broadcom a larger reach into the networking hardware market and potentially help the chipmaker expand into parts of the data center space as well.

The reports come on the heels of Level 3 agreeing to a $34bn acquistion at the hands of Telco giant CenturyLink. ®
