Open networking describes a network that uses open standards and commodity hardware. In other words, open networking is the ability a computer system has to be open in terms of component compatibility — in both hardware and software — expandability and extendibility.
There are many names for this Open Networking Hardware you might see COTS (completely off the shelf), white boxes, commodity hardware and many more, but the concept remains the same.
While Open Networking Hardware very often relates to hardware in the Core of a Network, a Data Center or in the Edge, very often a counterpart is needed that is connected next in line towards the end customer device, very often called the CPE (customer premise equipment).
