It is a unique network development platform, designed to bring the twin pillars – performance and programmability – together for the first time in the history of networking. The combination of the Tofino programmable switch chip, the P4 programming language and Capilano tool set are revolutionary.
Barefoot Tofino™ – the world’s fastest switch silicon, that happens also to be programmable.
P4 – Programming Protocol-independent Packet Processors – www.p4.org exists now as an independent entity to develop a rich open source ecosystem. Unlike human languages, a programming language such as P4 can unambiguously specify the behavior of network forwarding behavior. A programmer can describe the behavior once, then compile theprogram to run on a variety of different platforms.
Capilano – the compilers and development tools needed to compile and debug programs to run on Tofino.
A ready-to-use NOS, SONiC – a collection of networking software components required to have a fully functional L3 device.
