Course Objectives

This course aims to enable participants to implement PONCAT3 / ALLEYCAT3 1G switches / Routers. Participants get a detailed understanding of the switch feature. Attendees will learn how to design a board based on this switch and connect 1G/10G PHYs. All stages between ingress port and egress port will be studied, particularly the utilization of TCAMs.

General Information

Prerequisites

  • Knowledge of Ethernet (802.3) and Bridging (802.1) is recommended
  • Courses on ARM CPU also available, including ARMv7-A, which is useful if low level programming is planned

Duration & Attendance

  • 5 days
  • Min/max number of participants: 3-15

Location

On site/intra

Target Audience

Engineers and technicians who develop systems based on Marvell PONCAT3 / ALLEYCAT3 1G/10G switches.
