Each partner brings unique expertise:

  • PLVision has adapted Community SONiC for OpenLAN Switching, addressing its specific needs. They have also created a standard build pre-loaded onto OLS Whiteboxes, enabling secure, internet-based Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) for factory-fresh units, streamlining deployment.
  • Shasta Cloud’s expertise lies in cloud integration for SONiC switches. They enable untrusted ZTP, unified management with OpenWiFi access points, and introduce a new Cloud Gateway for large-scale deployments.
  • Leveraging their extensive experience in commercializing SONiC Switches, Edgecore is leading the charge with their innovative OLS line, including the ECS4650-54P(TS).

PLVision has successfully developed an extended OLS client with Community SONiC support and is collaborating with Edgecore to enable it on the ECS4650-54P(TS) model. Further updates are planned in the future.

Additionally, PLVision has expanded the hardware compatibility list for SONiC Lite, a complete, scalable, and sustainable solution specifically designed for more economical networking equipment. It utilizes fewer resources like RAM, CPU, and storage, making it ideal for cost-effective deployments. Maintaining the open-source philosophy of SONiC, SONiC Lite provides the freedom to choose your preferred hardware vendors without limitations. You get access to essential L2/L3 networking, robust security tools, granular QoS control, integrated PoE support, and intuitive management utilities – all optimized for edge and campus deployments.
