DirectFlow runs alongside the existing layer 2/3 forwarding plane, enabling a network architecture that incorporates new capabilities, such as TAP aggregation and custom traffic engineering, alongside traditional forwarding models.

DirectFlow does not require a controller or any third party integration as flows can be installed via the CLI.
