Unlock the Full Potential of Programmable Networking with P4! Join us for an exclusive online P4 training program, led by P4 expert Vladimir Gurevich, and master the intricacies of P4 development for Intel Tofino Switches. 

ICA-XFG-001 is free, 1-unit preparatory, instructor-led course that provides a quick introduction to the exciting technology of high-speed programmable packet processing. This course is recommended to anyone who wants to attend the introductory academy courses such as ICA-XFG-101 to learn about P4 Language, Intel® P4 Studio, and Intel Tofino™ Family of Intelligent Fabric Processors (IFP) and would like to obtain more background knowledge about the underlying technology and its applications.

ICA-XFG-001 Introduction to Data Plane Programmability

Starting 14th November, at 07:00 PST / 15:00 BST / 16:00 CET – sessions will last for approx. 2 hours

Course Goals:

Upon the completion of the course, the students will:

1. Understand the general architecture of telecommunication systems with the emphasis on the role of the data plane in system functionality and performance
2. Understand the concept of data plane programming and its benefits
3. Understand the typical functionality offloaded to the data plane programs
4. Understand the role of the control plane and control plane APIs
5. Get a roadmap for future education and exploration

Detailed Schedule

The course consists of a 2-hour-long lecture (presentation) with one break. There are no labs due to the introductory nature of the course.
