What is the QuantaMesh Bare Metal Switch (QuantaMesh BMS)?

The QuantaMesh Bare Metal Switch has no network OS (NOS) loaded on them. Instead they are preloaded with the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) which allows end-users and channel partners to install their target network OS. The network OS installation is a part of the data center provisioning, similar to server provisioning. The ONIE is analogous to a Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) for switches.
