Your Innovation Engine for Embedded Networking Software Development

On-demand expertise in Networking software development

Looking for a cost-effective way to extend software capabilities of your hardware product and win new customers? You can benefit from our embedded software development services. Powered by our hands-on experience with 90% of merchant switch silicon families and a strong SDN and NFV skillset, you will be able to:

  • Extend the set of use-cases for your hardware product
  • Keep up with technological trends to focus your product’s features on specific end-customer needs
  • Reduce hardware product adaptation cost for end-customers with ready-to-use software.

"We’re happy with their output and the quality of their work. They have a methodical, design-oriented approach to solving problems. They use a product development perspective rather than just executing what you tell them."

Embedded Systems
Embedded Systems
  • BSP and SDK development and integration
  • Embedded software development for ASIC, SoC and FPGA
  • Linux integration, drivers development, white-box platforms integration
  • Switching silicon and Network processor integration
  • Wide range of Layer 2, Layer3 Protocol Stack development (Ethernet, LLDP, VLAN, MPLS, BGP, RSTP, OSPF, etc.)
  • Overlay network protocols implementation (VXLAN, GRE, NVGRE)
  • Third party network stack protocols integration (Quagga, OpenSwitch, MetaSwitch, Aricent)

 

SDN & NFV
SDN & NFV
  • Hardware offloading and VNF acceleration (DPDK, SR-IOV)
  • Network operating system integration and development (OvS, OVN, OCP, SAI, FBOSS, SONiC, OpenSwitch, Linux Switchdev)
  • South-bound interface development and integration (P4 Runtime, OpenFlow, SNMP, NETCONF, OVSDB)
  • North-bound API and Cloud integration; management and orchestration (OpenStack, OPNFV, Kubernetes, Azure)
  • SDN application and controller development (OpenDaylight, ONOS, CORD)

Benefit from P4 - one of the hottest trends in Networking! In contrast to OpenFlow, it takes network switch management to the next level by bringing programmability to the forwarding plane. PLVision has already started applying P4 in a Networking project for a large global semiconductor vendor.
