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.
