PicOS can run in two different modes:

  • L2/L3 Mode
  • OVS Mode

L2/L3 Mode

In the L2/L3 (Layer 2 / Layer 3) mode, PicOS can run switching and routing protocols, as well as OpenFlow applications. In this mode, L2/L3 daemons are running, but OVS can also be activated if CrossFlow is enabled.

OVS Mode

In the OVS (Open vSwitch) mode, PicOS is optimized for OpenFlow applications. In this mode, L2/L3 daemons are not running, and the system is fully dedicated to OpenFlow and OVS.
