Titolo: Programming programmable network devices
Abstract: Ethernet networks deliver unprecedented volumes of increasingly diverse traffic. Network devices not only must process billions of packets per second, but must also provide a wide variety of network services, ranging from low latency services for real-time traffic to very high-volume data exchange. This talk will describe how to design very high-speed programmable network devices to fulfill the requirements of current-generation networks. In particular, the talk will describe two research activities: (i) designing a domain-specific VLIW processor tailored to execute network functionalities and (ii) defining a workflow to translate Linux eBPF network functions to FPGA-based high-speed network processing pipelines.
