Hello Syed,

I'd like to direct your attention to the website of Barefoot Networks
<https://barefootnetworks.com> (https://barefootnetworks.com), the company
I work for. If you search the Internet, using, for example, the term "p4
switch Barefoot" you will see that we've recently announced a
fully-programmabe 6.5Tbps switch and P4 is exactly the language that the
switch is programmed in.

You can also visit p4.org and learn about (and download if you like) the
behavioral model (BMv2) as well as a reference data plane program
(switch.p4) that was successfully integrated in a number of open-source
projects, including OpenSwitch and SONiC.

Happy hacking,
