SDN technologies have received significant attention by the network community in the recent years. OpenFlow success has motivated further exploration of  the limits of network programmability both in the control plane, with platform like ONOS, as well as in the data plane, with the specification of the P4 language. In this presentation, I will discuss how programmable hardware platforms, like the NetFPGA project, have underpin network programmability. I will elaborate on the design and the programming model of the NetFPGA platform  and the capabilities of the P4-NetFPGA compiler.
