CIN-WS282 - Programmable ASICs: Why Hardware Matters in the Age of SDN and Virtualization - 1 Hour

Session Description

Does hardware still matter in the age of Software and Virtualization? It sure does!

Flexible application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) are key to allowing networks to evolve, letting you enable new protocols, new functions, and new solutions for your organization. Traditional silicon technologies are fixed-function – fast, but not flexible. Cisco pioneered the Programmable Silicon field four years ago with the Catalyst 3850, where the amazing Cisco Unified Access Data Plane (UADP) chip was first introduced.

Now, Cisco is enabling the next generation of solutions with the Catalyst 9000 Series of switches – powered by UADP 2.0 and Cisco IOS XE. In this Webcast, you will discover how we build silicon – why flexible silicon is so important to the future of networking – and the latest set of innovations Cisco is delivering with the next evolution of the UADP chip family. And most importantly, we will discuss why these capabilities matter for you, and your business.

Topics to be discussed include:

• Introduction – Why Flexible ASICs Matter
• What is an ASIC?
• Primer – Overview of ASIC Development
• The Importance of Flexible Silicon
• Network Innovation – UADP Overview
• Introducing UADP 2.0 – Younger, Stronger, Faster!
• I Want It! How Can I Get Some?
• Network Innovations Delivered by UADP
• Summary – Why Hardware Matters More than Ever!
