P4 (Programming Protocol-Independent Packet Processors) is an open source project initiated by Professor Nick McKeown of Stanford University and Professor Jennifer Rexford of Princeton University, as well as Google, Intel, Microsoft and Barefoot Networks. P4 is a For high-level languages that program the underlying device data processing behavior, users can directly write web applications using the P4 language, and then compile the underlying devices to complete the user's functional requirements.

 P4's vitality and value have attracted more than 80 corporate members and 20 university research institutions to join the open source community, and everyone will jointly promote the construction and commercial application of the P4 language ecology. In the field of academic research, P4 results have been published at top web conferences such as SIGCOMM. In the industry, Barefoot Networks, one of the founding members of P4, also released the world's first programmable 6.5Tbps switch chip "Tofino" last year. At the same time, a number of typical network applications such as INT and SRv6 emerged in the data center and other scenarios.


In October 2016, P4 technology exchange was successfully held in Nanjing, Beijing and Shenzhen, attracting the attention of many users. The "P4 2017 China Summit" was held in Beijing on May 8, 2017. Liu Yunjie, Dean of Jiangsu Future Network Innovation  Institute , Professor Nick McKeown, one of P4's founders, Craig Barratt, CEO of Barefoot Networks, Yu Yingtao, President and CEO of H3C Group,and such as  Cai Yiqun, vice President of Alibaba participated in the P4 technology and development prospects. 

In November 2018, we will hold the "P4 2018 China Summit" in Beijing. The conference will invite more academicians, Internet technology elites, equipment manufacturers to discuss programmable data plane chips, P4 language, network innovation applications and other hot issues. To jointly promote the P4's landing applications and product solutions to maturity.
