Software-defined networking (SDN) may be a threat to Cisco and Juniper, but it's an opportunity for Broadcom (BRCM), since it could boost the usage of commodity switches running on Broadcom's network processors. The EE Times reports Broadcom  is working with app developers and two unnamed OEMs to create an API that would support both traditional networks and the popular OpenFlow SDN standard. During Broadcom's Q2 earnings call, CEO Scott McGregor claimed his company is "working with pretty much everybody in the SDN space."
