SDN Solutions Overview
CONTACT US

Pica8 products are deployed in different networking environments to solve a wide variety of customer challenges. Hybrid cloud VPN, fiber-to-the-premise, and services gateways at the network edge are examples of how customers are using SDN technology to deliver competitive differentiation. A tunable network platform based on open protocols and disaggregation is the key to this flexibility.

Our customers leverage PicOS, our Linux network OS for white box switches, to build networks with different scale and performance densities, construct different network topologies or use software APIs including OpenFlow and OVSDB to integrate with business-critical applications. These are the most common solutions where we see Pica8 products today.

Pica8 Switch-Based Point of Sale Security

In an industry first, Pica8 has developed a unique new SDN flow control plane, known as CrossFlow™ that can be programmed to allow uninterrupted normal L2/L3 packet flow for “White Listed Protocols” and either divert or drop only packets not conforming to the White List to enable an additional layer of switch-based security. This, combined with Access Control Lists implemented in the Switch silicon, delivers a new, enhanced security layer in each Ethernet switch.
