Pica8 pioneered the modern disaggregated open networking alternative to tightly coupled legacy switches and routers by releasing the industry’s first Debian-based Linux network operating system (NOS), PICOS®, running on a wide variety white box and brite box switches, back in early 2012. Today, over 900 customers in 30+ countries depend on Pica8’s unique ability to manage every port in a network with both L2/L3 and SDN control planes. This tight coupling of control planes enables real-time granular control of enterprise applications; deep and dynamic traffic monitoring; and even attack mitigation to now take place directly on the switches themselves. This proven, mainstream alternative to proprietary legacy infrastructure is available directly from Pica8 and through a variety of strategic global partners.
