Trellis Introduction
This talk will introduce ONF's Trellis, an open-source multi-purpose leaf-spine switching fabric for data-center networking, built using bare-metal (whitebox) switches with support for multiple merchant-silicon ASICs. We will discuss the use of Trellis in CORD, as well as it's use independent of CORD.

Production OpenFlow Switches Now Available - Building CORD using OF-DPA Based Switches
In this talk, Broadcom will cover the evolution of OF-DPA from its inception to the present day. We illustrate how OF-DPA makes it possible to map OpenFlow Logical Switches to configurable switching pipelines that are available in production quantities today.  We also discuss the role of TTPs and other features of OpenFlow (like open specifications and extensibility) that acted as the catalyst for this transformation in networking.

Trellis Fabric on XPliant Architecture (XPA)
XPliant’s Packet Architecture (XPA) is a programmable switch architecture deployed at several cloud scale data center fabrics. In this talk we will describe how XPliant’s OpenFlow profile(s) leverages this cloud scale packet architecture to enable Trellis fabric and CORD use cases. We will discuss specific components of Trellis and CORD integration, general availability of the solution in the CORD/Trellis ecosystem, and demonstrate key aspects of the XPliant fabric that uniquely brings value to CORD ecosystem.

Programmable data planes, P4, and Trellis
Programmable data planes are a reality. Today one can use software to define the forwarding behavior of programmable switching silicon that offers the same (or more) throughput than fixed-function chips. In this talk we will give an overview of programmable data planes, P4 (a domain specific language to program such planes), P4 Runtime (the API to control them), and how today ONOS supports P4 and P4 Runtime. Finally, we will discuss the plans and possibilities of a P4-based CORD fabric.

Trellis Tutorial
In this session, we are going to introduce several basic features that Trellis supports, including bridging, routing, VLAN, L3 DHCP relay and vRouter.Taking a two-by-two leaf-spine topology as an example, we will explain each feature in detail and walk through all configurations that are required to enable each feature.
