A Message from Our Sponsors

googlelogo color 272x92dp pngGoogle has pioneered Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in data centers for over a decade. With the open sourcing of PINS (P4 Integrated Network Stack) two years ago, Google has ushered in a new model to remotely configure network switches. PINS brings in a P4Runtime application container to the SONiC architecture and supports extensions that make it easier for operators to realize the benefits of SDN. We look forward to enhancing the PINS capabilities and continue to support the P4 community in the future.

Intel logo 2023 svg  pngP4 is here to stay. It started with programmable Ethernet switches and is scaling through IPUs and FPGAs.  Direct support of P4 within the Linux kernel is another important use case we see emerging.  As an unambiguous way of specifying requirements, the future for P4 is bright and our commitment & investment at Intel is continuing to grow.
