How do we build custom SONiC-based products?

PLVision builds custom products based on the Community SONiC with new features added for specific use cases, providing further support, and network operators training.

We help you select your best-matched SONiC version, aligning it with the appropriate networking hardware, as well as configuring and testing specific SONiC features for your hardware setup. PLVision is vendor-neutral in platform and solution choices, delivering not a proprietary PLVision SONiC, but a version of open SONiC customized to your needs that you have total control of.

Who do we develop custom SONiC-based products for?

PLVision helps OEM & ODM vendors enable customized versions of Community SONiC on their networking equipment, while also developing specific features their users require.
