P4 Programmable Data Planes Labs For NETLAB+

By / February 3, 2022 / , / 0 Comments

NDG is pleased to announce the following lab library has been added to our supported curriculum content options for NETLAB+ VE. 

Introduction to P4 Programmable Data Planes – New Labs Now Available

The Introduction to P4 Programmable Data Planes lab series introduces programmable data plane switches and their role in the Software-defined Networking (SDN) paradigm. The labs provide a hands-on introduction to the Programming Protocol-independent Packet Processors (P4), the de facto programming language used to describe the behavior of the data planes of programmable switches. 

The development of this lab series was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation Award 1829698 “CyberTraining CIP: Cyberinfrastructure Expertise on High-throughput Networks for Big Science Data Transfers” at the University of South Carolina (UofSC).
