TouIX Leverages Pica8’s Network Operating System

Pica8® Inc. announced that TouIX is leveraging Pica8’s network operating system and white box switches to program and optimize its exchange fabric. Software defined networking (SDN) is aimed at giving network operators a fundamentally new way to operate, provision and manage the network. With Pica8’s software, TouIX avoids network outages and congestion caused by broadcast storms, thereby increasing customer satisfaction and uptime. The deployment is leveraging Ryu, the NTT Labs open-source controller, with parallel development underway for ON.Labs’ ONOS controller. Additionally, for this installation, developers used Pica8’s REST API as a means to communicate with a Graphical User Interface (GUI), simplifying common operational tasks.
