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 4×10Gbps.

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.
