In Software Gone Wild Episode 52 Katerina Barone-Adesi explained how Igalia implemented 4-over-6 tunnel termination (lwAFTR) with Snabb Switch. Their solution focused on very fast data plane and had no real control plane.
No problem – there are plenty of stable control planes on the market, all we need is some glue.
Marcel Wiget implemented that glue, combined Snabb Switch lwAFTR implementation with vMX control plane, and open-sourced the glue, so you can use whatever Snabb Switch functionality with Junos control plane.
