Barefoot Networks to Present the Power of P4-Programmability with Barefoot Tofino™ and Barefoot Deep Insight™ at HPE Discover 2018

Barefoot’s P4-programmable forwarding plane technology, Barefoot Tofino, and its revolutionary real-time network visibility application, Barefoot Deep Insight, to be showcased at HPE Discover 2018 in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At HPE Discover 2018, taking place June 19-21, 2018, Barefoot Networks will showcase P4-programmability with its Barefoot Tofino series of Ethernet switch ASICs and Barefoot Deep Insight scale-out software application, which provides real-time, per-packet visibility at nanosecond granularity.

Barefoot enables programmable packet forwarding planes that can be defined using the open-source networking domain-specific P4 programming language. The presentations will cover Barefoot’s products and common programmability use cases for different market segments including enterprise, service provider and cloud operators.

Barefoot’s technology empowers network owners and infrastructure partners to meet their specific requirements and gain a competitive advantage unmatched by solutions based on fixed-function silicon. With P4 data plane programmability, operators can take control of their network and maximize investments by achieving higher table scale, real-time per-packet telemetry with In-band Network Telemetry (INT) and Barefoot SPRINT™, and feature differentiation.

Barefoot’s session, “Using Programmable Forwarding Planes and P4 to Design, Build and Operate Your Network,” will be presented at the Pathfinder theater on Wednesday, June 20 from 10:00–10:30 a.m. PT and Thursday, June 21 from 11:00–11:30 a.m. PT. Led by Arkadiy Shapiro, product line manager at Barefoot, the session will highlight innovative use cases enabled by Barefoot’s technology for building highly-available, highly-scalable and resilient networks.
