Custom hardware not only matters, it’s the future of software-defined networking. Programmable application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC) deliver software flexibility for today’s high-powered networks. Learn more about these innovations at the heart of today’s most sophisticated network devices?

This episode of TechWiseTV discusses all things ASICs, with guests Peter Jones, Principal Engineer for Cisco Unified Access Data Plane (UADP), and Distinguished System Engineer, Dave Zacks.

Episode includes:

• How modern ASICs are designed, tested, and manufactured
• Why miniaturization increases performance as it lowers costs
• What makes ASICs programmable, and how are they able to support protocols that haven’t been invented yet
• A look at the new UADP 2.0, and what it brings to the Cisco Catalyst 9000 Series and Cisco Software Defined Access
