Replace Your Cisco DNA Center and Catalyst Switches With Pica8: The Software Cisco
Pica8 is the industry’s open networking software alternative to Cisco for the enterprise. Pica8’s AmpCon™ Controller and PicOS® Software Switches have successfully replaced Cisco DNA Center and Catalyst Switches for campus and access networks within Fortune 500 enterprises. Pica8 software makes enterprise white box networking a reality today.
Networking market demands are vastly outstripping market supply due to global chip shortages, with little signs of improvement in the near term. Networking automation products deployed on white box hardware can be a great option at a price point any finance executive will approve of, and with a host of features that network engineers will appreciate.

Cisco’s DNA Center and Catalyst licensing and deployment are so complex that the only line to profit for VARs is to employ engineers for pro services. Pica8’s AmpCon automation allows VARs to get into the switch networking market without the expense of having to staff a pro services team. Our Pica8 customers are the ultimate beneficiaries of time and money savings.Bill Rubin, President and CEO for Connect I.T. Solutions
Disaggregated networking software strategies on white box hardware is clearly the future. Every dollar we spend on white box technology today allows us to remain on the cutting edge of technology while future proofing our network.Dave Clark, President, Impulse Advanced Communications
Pica8 Is The Software Cisco
Many technology companies have understood the value of open networking on generic hardware for some time. It is a recent trend that other types of network consumers are catching on that heterogeneous network environments are not only an option to them, but probably a necessary one given market limitations such as hardware supplies and lead times.
Multinational retailers, Fortune manufacturing companies, industrial suppliers, and many others without the technical resources of a pureplay networking technology company are finding their infrastructure expansion plans are having to be changed, or in some cases halted, due to their enterprise vendor being unable to provide timely solutions. It is cases like this where Pica8 can provide an alternative, cost-effective upgrade path designed to work in tandem with any deployed systems and prepare for future expansion.
Pica8’s mission statement is a simple one: To be the only networking software vendor your enterprise will ever need–Today, tomorrow and beyond.
