Hi,
The high-speed Ethernet Network Processor (ENP) embedded in the S5720-HI, S5730-HI, and S5731-H is tailored for Ethernet. The chip's flexible packet processing and traffic control capabilities can meet current and future service requirements, helping build a highly scalable network.

In addition to capabilities of traditional switches, the S5720-HI, S5730-HI, and S5731-H provide fully programmable open interfaces and support user-defined forwarding behavior. Enterprises can use the open interfaces to develop new protocols and functions independently or jointly with equipment vendors to build campus networks meeting their own needs.

The ENP has a fully programmable architecture, on which enterprises can define their own forwarding models, forwarding behavior, and lookup algorithms. Microcode programmability makes it possible to provide new services within six months, without the need of replacing the hardware. In contrast, traditional ASIC chips use a fixed forwarding architecture and follow a fixed forwarding process. For this reason, new services cannot be provisioned until new hardware is developed to support the services one to three years later.

Enabling networks to be more agile for services


Thanks

to simplify the explanation, when you have an switch with an integrated ENP chip, you have more features like Native AC, full support of Openflow, and it also makes the switch programmable.
