Open Networking

The next generation of networking technologies

Traditional Networking VS Open Networking

Freedom of choice

Black Box stagnation
  • Closed system
  • High dependence on one vendor
  • Proprietary hard- and software
  • High purchase and support rates
White Box revolution
  • Open system
  • Flexible combination of hard- and software
  • Premium hardware from the biggest OEM manufacturers
  • Up to 50% saving on the same quality and performance

Open Networking Software

One of the greatest advantages of Open Networking is, that a switch can adapt to different roles just by changing the switch operating system.


  • Many Switch Operating Systems for different use-cases
  • Choose the SwitchOS that fits you best
  • Change the OS but keep the Hardware and reuse it
  • Full concentration on SW features, not on HW
  • Highly cost effective, especially for L2 / L3
  • Open Source OS offer adjustability
  • Commercial OS offer continious support and testing

Open Networking Hardware

With Open Hardware, the ability to use standard, un-coded peripherals (often from the same manufacturer) can reduce total network costs by five-figures in even small to medium enterprises.


  • Unlocked hardware
  • Built by Billon-Dollar OEM manufactures
  • Same Quality, half the price (no marketing, SW dev. etc.)
  • Switches for every use-case
  • Reusable by just installing another NOS
  • Warranty and support
