VPP: 100Mpps of MPLS on a Linux PC

In this talk, Pim will demonstrate high performance routing using open-source VPP and its underlying Data Plane Development Kit. This talk highlights the authors work on integrating the Linux Control Plane which makes BGP, OSPF, etc available with VPP, including smart ways to automate configuration of the router's data- and controlplane layers.

In 2023, Pim helped Adrian vifino Pistol to implement MPLS support in VPP's Linux ControlPlane plugin, and now folks can deploy a fully MPLS capable P-/PE router in excess of 100Mpps on a cheap PC.
