The Network Is Changing

Academia & Research Program

Programmable Networking is the new focus for innovation in computing. As traditional compute power struggles to keep pace with network speeds and data volumes, the only sustainable solution is to offload some of the burden onto more intelligent networking solutions.

Over the next decade, networking technology will become an even more vital part of competitive advantage across a swathe of industries. But in contrast to past waves of network innovation, the programmable data plane is being developed through open collaboration.

  • Smart Cities: A Deeply Connected Network Fabric

    A Smart City is a city that is deeply connected by network devices throughout its fabric. This is a city that has the potential to reconfigure itself to suit changing needs. Our range of switches answer these needs. We use the P4 network programming language in our devices to allow network operators to develop intelligent network topologies.

  • ONF and P4 - A (packet) match made in heaven

    P4, the open source programming language (which sits at the heart of APS technology) has found itself a new home within the Open Networking Foundation (ONF). We all know, any choice of home is about ‘location, location, location’ - and we think the ONF offers the most exciting new neighbourhood for this project.

  • Why it's Time for Accuracy at the Heart of the Network

    Time has always been at the core of our devices. Our current range of switches have a time accuracy of four nanoseconds; that's only slightly longer than it takes light to travel a meter. But we feel light is tardy and takes _far_ too long to get places. Our next generation switches will enable astonishing levels of time accuracy, enabling a whole new generation of time-sensitive applications.

  • Why Program a Switch?

    With the emerging generation of programmable switches you maintain the normal switching protocols; we are not reinventing the wheel here. But you can overlay your own network logic to be executed simultaneously, at blistering wirespeed throughput.
