Today's routers need to perform packet classification at wire speed in order to provide critical services such as traffic billing, priority routing and blocking unwanted Internet traffic. With everincreasing ruleset size and line speed, the task of implementing wire speed packet classification with reduced power consumption remains difficult. Software approaches are unable to classify packets at wire speed as line rates reach OC-768, while state of the art hardware approaches such as TCAM still… CONTINUE READING
