Does anyone have concrete examples of this with certain vendors, chipsets, HALs, SALs, etc.? This is an area that I’m interested in and don’t have much direct experience with. Any other data that can be shared would be great. Feel free to leave a comment or write in privately.
On a related note, I know someone *cough* (@networkstatic) *cough* who is dying to get access to the new Unified Access Data Plane (UDAP) ASIC that offers a programmable data plane onboard the new Cisco 3850 Converged Access Layer switches. Will this be opened up to the public?
Vendors need to unleash the beast to really show off hardware programmability.
