PICOS SDN includes the same Debian Linux distribution, again with an unmodified kernel for maximum DevOps programmability. It also offers support for all major OpenFlow controllers, including OpenStack Neutron ML2, ONOS, Open Daylight (ODL), HPE’s VAN, NEC’s Programmable Flow Controller, and Ryu.
At Pica8, we don’t take our “infinitely programmable” claim for PICOS lightly. MPLS, GRE, NVGRE and VXLAN tunnels can all be easily controlled using PICOS SDN. The product also takes advantage of OpenFlow 1.5’s User-Defined Fields, allowing PICOS SDN to look deep into the packets for next-generation real-time analytics, security and remediation.
Both PICOS SDN and PICOS Enterprise editions couple Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) with ONIE (Open Network Install Environment) making them the easiest open, disaggregated NOS offerings on the market.
