Due to the lack of IPv4 addresses, IPv6 deployements have recently
gained in importance in the Internet.
Several transition mechanism exist that allow translating IPv6
packets into IPv4 packets, thus enabling the coexistence
and interoperability of both protocols.
This thesis describes an implementation of the transition mechanism
NAT64 implemented in P4. Using the P4 programming language
a software emulated switch was created that translates IPv4 to IPv6 and vice versa.
Due to the target independence of P4 the same code can be compiled
for and deployed to on the FPGA hardware platform ``NetFPGA''.
Within the NetFPGA the NAT64 implementation achieves a stable throughput of
9.29 Gigabit/s and allows in network translations without a router.
