With a healthy growth outlook predicted for the SDN market for the next seven years, here are 10 of the coolest software-defined networking tools of 2020.

Pica8 Threshold

Palo Alto, Calif.-based Pica8 is a provider of open-standards-based operating systems on white-box network switches. The channel-friendly company was launched in 2009 and immediately took aim at IT market heavyweight Cisco.

Pica8 last year introduced Threshold, an open networking offering for modernizing education, government and Fortune 1000 enterprise networks. The company said Threshold can replace Cisco campus networks, including chassis switches, automation tools and small branch office switches. Threshold offers a centrally managed, intelligent network that uses white-box switches that run on Pica8’s PICOS open networking software suite.
