Netcope P4 Announces Support for Intel® FPGA PAC N3000

16/10/19

We’re pleased to announce that Netcope P4 now also supports Intel® FPGA PAC N3000. Netcope P4 compiles the packet processing program written in open-standard P4 language into 100 Gbps FPGA firmware, allowing unprecedented flexibility and rapid development of high-speed network applications.

Intel-FPGA-PAC-N3000_small-(1).jpgUsing the powerful Arria 10 FPGA, and being in mass production state, Intel® FPGA PAC N3000 is the platform of choice for the acceleration of many bandwidth and latency-sensitive virtualized network applications, such as vRAN,  vEPC, vBNG and others. Netcope P4 brings the possibilities to a whole new level. Instead of tedious and error-prone HDL coding, the card can be programmed in the open-standard P4 language.

Netcope P4 is now specifically optimized to take advantage of the N3000 unique features, offering large capacities of lookups in off-chip DDR memories and achieving line-rate packet processing with low latency and resource utilization. With Netcope P4 and N3000, your fully custom 100 Gbps packet processor built with COTS hardware is just hours away. For more contact us.

Viktor Puš, CTO of Netcope Technologies says:

"Now that Intel® FPGA PAC N3000 is programmable in P4, the development of packet processing FPGA accelerators is easier than you could have imagined. With Netcope P4, you can get a fully custom 100 Gbps packet processing pipeline in hours. Using industry standards such as DPDK, integrating with existing tools and ecosystems is straightforward."
