Tiivistelmä

Packet parsing is the first step in processing of packets in devices such as network switches and routers. The process of packet parsing has become more challenging due to the increase in line rates and emergence of Software Defined Networking which leads to new protocols being adopted. In this paper, we present a novel architecture for parsing of packets. The architecture is fully programmable and is not tied to any specific protocol. It can be programmed to parse any protocol making it suitable for Software Defined Networks. Compared with the parser used in the Reconfigurable Match Tables, our parser improves supported throughput by a factor of 3.2. Moreover, to achieve the target throughput of 640 Gbps, our parser needs only 2 percent of the number of gates used in the parsers of Reconfigurable Match Tables.
