The growth of the Internet of things (IoT) has an enormous impact on network providers. One of the consequences of the IoT is an increase in the number of Ethernet ports on networking devices. Network switches and routers are among the largest IC designs being developed, reaching beyond a half billion gates. Verification of such complex designs before silicon availability is a daunting task. Verification Consultant, Lauro Rizzatti, outlines how to speed up the verification of networking design.
