P4: A platform for FPGA implementation of protocol boosters

  title={P4: A platform for FPGA implementation of protocol boosters},
  author={Ilija Hadzic and Jonathan M. Smith},
Protocol Boosters are functional elements, inserted and deleted from network protocol stacks on an as-needed basis. The Protocol Booster design methodology attempts to improve end-to-end networking performance by adapting protocols to network dynamics. We describe a new dynamically reconngurable FPGA based architecture , called the Programmable Protocol Processing Pipeline (P4), which provides a platform for highly-exible hardware implementations of Protocol Boosters. The prototype P4 is… CONTINUE READING
