Verifying Software Defined Networking
by Daniel Payne on 02-22-2019 at 12:00 pm

I’ve designed hardware and written software for decades now, so it comes as no surprise to see industry trends like Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) growing in importance. Instead of designing a switch with fixed logic you can use an SDN approach to allow for greatest flexibility, even … Read More

FPGA-Based Networking for Datacenters: A Deeper Dive
by Bernard Murphy on 08-10-2017 at 7:00 am

I’ve written before about the growing utility of FPGA-based solutions in datacenters, particularly around configurable networking applications. There I just touched on the general idea; Achronix have developed a white-paper to expand on the need in more detail and to explain how a range of possible solutions based on their … Read More

Softly Defined Networks
by Paul McLellan on 06-11-2014 at 4:26 am

Software defined networks were a technique developed around 6 years ago. The original structure of IP based network scaled by using additional routers that would forward packets based on partial information about the network topology. Inside each router was a dataplane, where the packets themselves flowed through, and a control… Read More
