In this proposal, we seek to develop methods for packet classiﬁcation that can deliver high performance (e.g. wire speed processing at 10 Gb/s) while being reasonably cost-eﬀective (e.g. memory-eﬃcient and having low hardware complexity). In particular, we discuss a new approach involving extended TCAMs. This new approach eliminates the problems that preclude TCAMs from being considered viable solutions to the packet classiﬁcation problem.
