Bare metal switches provide various options for customization, making them popular amongst vendors. Unlike other switches, bare metal switches provide a choice to the users of network OS, drivers, applications as per their requirements.
Calsoft assists customers by customizing switches to fit their requirements by developing and testing specific network components and managing them.
Network OS Development
Other switches come already packed with a pre-installed OS, making them difficult for the user to modify the components as required. With bare metal switches, the user’s choice of OS can be installed and Calsoft helps in this process right from choosing the apt OS to its installation, upgrade, and management.
With the power of customization provided by bare metal, vendors experience increased complexities and likelihood of errors. Calsoft makes it easy by providing testing support for the protocol stack on bare metal switches.
Calsoft built an all-inclusive software that could be run on top of a white box switch. The idea was to use open-source components to demonstrate the SW architecture.
