RedFig Is a new breed of SI that provides expertise and development capability to help customers understand and realise the benefits of Network disaggregation with "SONIC" the Open source NOS and White label P4 enabled Barefoot Tofino ASIC RedFig's is here to help customers create long term strategies to integrate white box infrastructure into their current networks to significantly reduce cost and increase productivity.

RedFig Networks Different Approach

  • Most current Whitebox Network Operating Systems (NOS's) use Openflow controllers and Openflow Tables to control a propriety ASIC SDK e.g. Boardcom SDK
  • Moving to a P4 Data Plane requires different approach
  • Choosing a NOS provider means being locked into that NOS
  • Long term goal is for the entire infrastructure's Data plane to use P4
  • The P4 program and PD on the switch only needs to perform functions for the environment it is running in
  • No need for all functions to be loaded onto the switch as today
  • Simplifies entire lifecycle - Design, Dev, Test, Operate
