A flexible networking architecture that includes dynamic routing, switching, and VPN connectivity enables organizations to deploy Palo Alto Networks into nearly any networking environment.

Integrate into any architecture with flexible networking architecture.

L2/L3 networking: An L2/L3 architecture that leverages zone-based security enforcement, enables deployment in switched and routed environments.

Dynamic routing: Support for OSPF, RIP and BGP combined with full 802.1Q VLAN support is provided for both layer 2 and layer 3 deployments, so that all services can be enabled while seamlessly integrating with the existing routing or VLAN architecture.

Virtual Wire: Virtual Wire provides organizations with a true transparent mode by logically binding two ports together and passing all traffic to the other port without any switching or routing. Full inspection and control for all traffic is enabled with no impact on the surrounding devices and no networking protocol configuration. Multiple Virtual Wire pairs can be configured to support multiple network segments.


Multicast support has been extended beyond identification and control of multicast traffic to now include the ability to participate in multicast routing and group management through PIM-SM, PIM-SSM and IGMP support.

Safely enabling applications, users and content in IPv6 networks.

Organizations that are implementing an IPv6 infrastructure can deploy the same user-based enablement policies that have been deployed in their IPv4 environments. IPv6-based applications and content can be classified, controlled, inspected, monitored and logged, just as they are in IPv4 environments. IPv6 user information can be captured from all of the User-ID supported directories and terminal services as well as captive portal and the XML API. In addition, the User-ID to firewall communications protocol supports IPv6.
