In your XSL, on the stylesheet or transform element declare the namespace with
whatever prefix you desire.  That will allow you to use that prefix in your
XPath statements.  So:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  xmlns:client="http://somecompany.com/box/client"
  xmlns:box="http://somecompany.com/box"
>

Now in your XPath:

/client:box-client/client:network/box:components
