About Pica8

Pica8 pioneered the modern disaggregated open networking alternative to
tightly coupled legacy switches and routers by releasing the industry's
first Debian-based Linux network operating system (NOS), PICOS®, running
on a wide variety white box and brite box switches, back in early 2012.
Today, over 900 customers in 30+ countries depend on Pica8's unique
ability to manage every port in a network with both L2/L3 and SDN
control planes. This tight coupling of control planes enables real-time
granular control of enterprise applications; deep and dynamic traffic
monitoring; and even attack mitigation to now take place directly on the
switches themselves. This proven, mainstream alternative to proprietary
legacy infrastructure is available directly from Pica8 and through a
variety of strategic global partners. For more information, visit
