In this paper we examine how a network processor can be modeled using object-oriented techniques. We examine the Intel IXP 1200 network processor and discuss how the object-oriented language POOSL was utilized to allow an evaluation of a system before implementing it with hardware and software components. With the case study of the IXP 1200, we illustrate the suitability of object-oriented languages for system level modeling and design exploration.
