Customer Service

Our hardware-agnostic, Debian-based, and OpenFlow-supporting switching operating system—PicOS™—is loaded onto commoditized, or "white box" bare-metal switches purchased from our ODM (original design manufacturer) partners. In a single package, you can leverage white box economics and our open operating system with Pica8® providing full assistance for both.
