STORDIS P4 Switch Services

The SwitchON P4 Service is designed to help customers on their first steps with their P4 capable network switch. The aim of these training sessions are to guide you through the initial set-up and operation of your switch.

There are two different service options available that cover a different amount of topics. Each of them includes a fixed amount of hours that can be spend remotely together with a STORDIS certified Network Engineer, who will help and guide you, depending on your requirements.

SwitchON P4 Service (3 Hour Course)

The SwitchON P4 service is designed as a 3 hour course together with a STORDIS qualified Engineer’s time. The goal of this course is to take the engineer from un-boxing the switch to running a first test application, while demonstrating the major features of their first exposure to a P4 development platform.

SwitchON P4 Course Content
  • Un-boxing and checking parts
  • Racking and connecting
  • Console connection and first start up
  • Building the Barefoot SDE
  • bf_switchd startup
  • Compiling and running a P4 test application

Depending on how experienced the Engineer is (un-boxing and racking is a reflex action for most Engineers) the early stages can be skipped and we can move straight to the connection and set-up phase.
