There is a recent paradigm shift from fixed data plane functionality to programmable networking hardware, driven by shifting application workloads to the cloud, a migration to DevOps, the performance needs for carrier network function virtualization (NFV), and the prospective efficiencies of processing IoT data in transit and at the edge. The shift has the potential to kick off another transformation in networking, increasing diversity and innovation in Ethernet silicon. Central to this transformation is the work of the community supporting the P4 language specification, which defines a protocol-independent method for devices to process packets. Early market pioneers are now offering Ethernet platforms leveraging P4 in which programmable Ethernet network adapters include SoCs or general-purpose CPUs. This webinar explores the networking transformation enabled by programmable silicon, describes example NFV and enhanced network telemetry use cases, and provides guidance for strategists planning network architectures.
