Virtual EuroP4 Workshop and CoNEXT 2020

We are proud and excited to be sponsoring the upcoming virtual 3rd P4 Workshop in Europe (EuroP4).

The P4 programming language is the most significant step change for the Networking industry in decades. Still in its infancy, P4 (Programming Protocol-independent Packet Processors) is at the core of APS Networks’ vision for programmable networking. It quite literally opens up the ability to redefine (in software) what your network is, does and how efficiently it does it.

The EuroP4 Workshop will be hosted online on the 1st of December as part of the CoNEXT 2020 virtual event. 

Presented by the P4 Language Consortium and the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), the workshop will showcase some of the latest bleeding-edge innovations in programmable networking, with comprehensive presentations and papers on P4-based network protocol research.

The organizers are keen to welcome new interest and promote growth in the P4 community, and a limited number of registration grants are available (with a focus on traditionally under-represented groups, students and recent graduates, early-career researchers in industry and non-affiliated). 

APS Networks is a supporter of P4 technology and an official sponsor of the EuroP4 2020 workshop. Further information about the @P4 Language Consortium, the event and the registration process can be found at https://p4.org/events/2020-12-01-euro-p4-workshop/

  • 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.
