[talks] 4:30pm Wed Apr 10 talk on NetFPGA platform in room CS 402

Jennifer Rexford jrex at CS.Princeton.EDU
Wed Apr 10 00:58:28 EDT 2013

Speaker: Andrew Moore (University of Cambridge) 
Title: NetFPGA: The Flexible Open-Source Networking Platform
Time: 4:30pm Wednesday April 10
Place: CS 402


The NetFPGA is an open platform enabling researchers and instructors to build high-speed, hardware-accelerated networking systems. The NetFPGA is the de-facto experimental platform for line-rate implementations of network research and it continues with a new generation platform capable of 4x10Gbps.

The target audience is not restricted to hardware researchers: the NetFPGA provides the ideal platform for research across a wide range of networking topics from architecture to algorithms and from energy-efficient design to routing and forwarding. The most prominent NetFPGA success is OpenFlow, which in turn has reignited the Software Defined Networking movement. NetFPGA enabled OpenFlow by providing a widely available open-source development platform capable of line-rate and was, until its commercial uptake, the reference platform for OpenFlow. NetFPGA enables high-impact network research.

This seminar will combine presentation and demonstration; no knowledge of hardware programming languages (eg Verilog/VHDL) is required.

A NetFPGA 10G card will be awarded as a door-prize amongst the seminar attendees.
