Barefoot Networks

19th Sep 2017

Barefoot Networks launched in 2016 after two years of developing the most programmable and – at 6.5 Terabits/second – the fastest switches ever built; twice as fast of the previous record. By enabling organizations to define the network data plane in software, Barefoot empowers network owners and their infrastructure partners to design, optimize, and innovate to meet their specific requirements and gain competitive advantage. In combining the P4 programming language with fast programmable switches, Barefoot has also created an ecosystem for compilers, tools, and P4 programs to make accessible to anybody.
