Abstract (40-Word Limit): The paper presents a novel network on-and-off chip approach for highly efficient and transparent intra-datacenter communications. The implemented FPGA-based network on-chip line card enables hitless adaptation between Ethernet and TSON, which is supported by a flexible network off-chip of AoD, demonstrating end-to-end high performance results.
