In this talk he will be presenting the evolution of switching engines. Hardware based packet processing has always been fast changing, due to new technologies disrupting the status quo. While speeds and feeds are very visible, fundamental transitions in the market were driven by new technologies and architectures. He will be covering our journey so far from L2, L3 to L4-L7 switching and the path forward with flexible switching.
