Forget WHITE BOX, it's time for JUNK BOX NETWORKING

It's not that unusual

After all if you don't need top notch equipment, second hand is much cheaper and the boxes need to be redundant anyhow.

For example I work at a VoIP provider and most of our networking gear in the production network was bought used.

Not everybody needs multi 10 gig networking.
