Pica8 Inc., the one-stop source for white box networking, today announced that it has extended its leadership in SDN and OpenFlow programmability with the first white box NOS to support OpenFlow 1.5 through OVS 2.5. Available in PicOS 2.8, OpenFlow 1.5 adds support for egress tables, user-defined ordered lists, and QoS features that enable network operators to program their switching environment to better integrate with SDN applications.

“There are an increasing number of production SDN deployments, and they are gaining in scale and the level of control and automation,” said Sudhir Modali, director of product management at Pica8. “In PicOS 2.8, we’ve again raised the bar by being the first mainstream NOS to support OpenFlow 1.5, greatly increasing the richness of tools available for building solutions, for system integrators, enterprises and carriers.”

In addition to OpenFlow, PicOS 2.8 also introduces:

• New YANG data models to provide seamless operations via NETCONF information on PicOS-enabled switches for SDN deployments.
• Expansion of Pica8’s TTP implementation to include support for multicast and further optimization of the use of router tables on the switch for finer control of SDN traffic.

With PicOS 2.8, integrators, carriers, and CSPs can build SDN solutions using standard protocols and methodologies, drastically reducing the time required for customization and time to market.

For example, Pica8 has worked with Luxar Tech and Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity to deliver an integrated actionable analytics platform built with an SDN monitoring fabric. This solution includes network packet brokers and controllers from Luxar Tech, the Net Sensor network probes and the Net Reporter analytics system from R&S, and combines these with OpenFlow and TTP for granular flow management along with the economics of white box switching. Now customers can actively monitor their production networks without a performance impact, while getting greater visibility into performance and statistics. The openness and programmability of PicOS simplifies the integration of the hardware, software controller, application, and other solution components.

“PicOS, with its extensive OpenFlow support, has dramatically simplified the integration of our network packet broker and controller products into real production environments,” said Henry Fung, Vice President of Networking Products at Luxar Tech. “Integration is the key to building solutions that customers want, and programmability with open protocols for the NOS is critical.”

“Together with Pica8 and Luxar Tech, we’ve enabled integrators and carriers to use SDN to build state-of-the-art traffic analytics solutions based on R&S Net Sensor and R&S Net Reporter in a simple and seamless way,” said Dirk Czepluch, VP Business Unit Network Analytics, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity.

In addition to performance monitoring for carriers, other customers are taking advantage of the programmability of PicOS to build SDN solutions for different use cases such as cloud service portals, live IP media broadcast networks, and access network solutions.

“The maturation of the SDN ecosystem is an indicator that programmability and standard, open interfaces will be the key to building and taking solutions to production. Pica8 has taken a leading position with the programmable open NOS and OpenFlow, and this is a critical component of building production SDN solutions with a flexible stack” said Paul Parker-Johnson, principal analyst at ACG.

These solutions will be demonstrated at Pica8’s booth at the SDN World Congress in The Hague, Netherlands, October 10th 14th, 2016. PicOS 2.8 is currently in limited beta release and will be available for GA in early November.
