The development of this lab series was supported with funding from the National Science Foundation Award 2118311, “Cybertraining on P4 Programmable Devices using an Online Scalable Platform with Physical and Virtual Switches and Real Protocol Stacks” at the University of South Carolina (UofSC). These labs provide hands-on practice with a variety of applications, stateful elements, and custom packet processing using P4 Programmable Data Plane switches in a Software-defined Networking (SDN) paradigm.
The P4 Programmable Data Planes - Applications, Stateful Elements, and Custom Packet Processing labs are supported using the P4 Programmable Data Planes ASECPP Pod.
