Not just the domain of hyperscale data centers, white box networking can be deployed efficiently in the enterprise. BY Pica8. With hundreds or thousands of locations to be connected, managing network services in remote or branch offices can be a significant challenge. Network services support everything from internal and guest WiFi to internet access, internal data networking, Voice over IP phones and video. All of these services have to be delivered and managed in a cost-effective way, but many solutions require rolling an IT truck to each location (which is prohibitively expensive) or adopting expensive proprietary hardware along with onerous support contracts. There is a different solution—white box switches and networking software that support all the features a branch office needs with remote management, but without the high cost and without vendor lock-in.
