Welcome to Pica8’s Documentation, Warranty, PICOS Downloads, and License Portal

Pica8 is far more than just another networking vendor. As the first to bring stable, Linux-based networking software on white box hardware to the market, we knew we had to step up far beyond “traditional” support models to help knock down all the Fake News about our industry. And that’s exactly what we’ve done. We’re obsessively dedicated to providing world-class support to our all of customers – no matter how big or small they are — 24 x 7 x 365. Everyone here at Pica8 is an advocate for all of you.

As we migrate to our more secure and customer friendly “Single Sign On” infrastructure we request our customers to drop us a quick email at to activate their new SSO IDs that will enable them to self-maintain their user profiles.

Once the SSO ID has been created for you by PICA8 you can set your password.

  1. Click on the “Single Sign On Profile” button
  2. Click on “I forgot my password” link
  3. Provide your email address.
  4. Upon receiving the reset email update your password

Initial response and target resolution times range from a few business days to as little as 1 hour based on:

Pica8 has a growing library of online support resources designed to answer the majority of our customers’ questions, including:
