List P4 enabled chips

Hello all!

I tried to go trough the threads on that mailing list - but with no luck to answer my questions.

We're looking for a P4 HW vendor that is willing to cooperate with us in a decision process(prototyping, tests, etc) to justify additional organizational overhead to onboard the P4 technology stack. We're building our own platform of SDN switch/router to satisfy our own needs for expanding and modernization our telco infrastructure. Currently we're finishing the FPGA-based platform and we're investigating our options for next-gen iteration of that project.

I've been trying to find some kind of list of P4 Hardware targets - ASICs, NPUs or any other merchant silicon chips that one can buy to prototype a P4 - compatible HW platform. I found that link: https://github.com/hesingh/p4-info/blob/master/README.md But it's not exactly what I'm looking for - Barefoot doesn't really exists anymore, and I'm not sure if Intel is selling Tofino chips to anyone nowadays. Can anyone point me a direction where to look or who to ask? This is still early phase and we're trying to compare the traditional FPGA approach (that we have experience with) with some smarter(imo) approaches like programmable chips. From the development perspective we're specifically interested with P4 compatible chips.

Cheers,

Michal

Dear Michal,

I cannot tell you for all the vendors, but let me assure you that Barefoot
Networks, an Intel company is doing well and is open for business. To tell
you the truth, I am not sure what is the basis for the information about
Barefoot that you relied upon, but it does not look correct to me.

For more information, I recommend you visit https://barefoortnetworks.com
-- this website is fully functional.

If you would like to send a message, you can use the "Contact us
https://www.barefootnetworks.com/contact-us" page on the same site:
https://www.barefootnetworks.com/contact-us/  and let us know that you'd
like to become a customer and purchase the devices. I will be also happy to
pass your information to our Sales Team.

Note, that in many cases it might be easier to start with a ready made
system first. You can find the information about the companies, providing
such systems on the "Getting started
https://www.barefootnetworks.com/products/getting-started/" page (
https://www.barefootnetworks.com/products/getting-started/). This should
not in any way preclude you from designing your own if you would like to.

Best wishes,
Vladimir Gurevich
