The Prisma SD-WAN Instant-On Network (ION) models of hardware and software devices enable the integration of a diverse set of wide area network (WAN) connection types, improve application performance and visibility, enhance security and compliance, and reduce the overall cost and complexity of your WAN.
Built with the intent to reduce remote infrastructure, Prisma SD-WAN enables the cloud-delivered branch. Enterprises have traditionally deployed multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks, using hardware routers, to connect branch offices to centralized data centers. With cloud adoption on the rise, end user applications like videoconferencing and office productivity solutions are increasingly delivered as cloud services.
Legacy WAN architectures have debilitating limitations when organizations attempt to migrate to the cloud or utilize commodity internet connections in their branch offices. For SD-WAN, you need a networking solution that: . Steers traffic and defines networking and security policies from an application-centric perspective, rather than a packet-based one.
At a Glance:
Minimizes manual operations and enables agile DevOps deployments via API integrations. Supports the cloud-delivered branch architecture by enabling all branch infrastructure, such as networking and security, to be delivered from the cloud. All aspects of configuration, management, and monitoring of ION hardware and software devices are performed from the multitenant Prisma SD-WAN cloud management portal, eliminating the need to individually configure devices at each location.
No additional servers or storage are required. Managed through the central cloud controller, ION devices include two modes of operation.
In analytics mode, the solution provides end-to-end visibility and analytics of your applications and networks, operating independently of the full suite of Prisma SD-WAN capabilities. ION devices are deployed in the network, at the WAN edge, and automatically begin examining application data on the network to identify the application and measure several key performance indicators of each session. Statistics from your network are stored securely in the Prisma SD-WAN cloud management portal, which can be used to configure ION devices, define applications and sites, and monitor end-toend application performance and availability.
In control mode, Prisma SD-WAN builds on the visibility and analytics foundation set by analytics mode and allows the ION devices to begin intelligently taking action based on policy for performance, compliance, and security. Routing functions, including path selection, prioritization, and security, can be integrated into the ION device to reduce the amount of hardware and operational expense associated with each remote office.
Prisma SD-WAN is licensed as a branch by bandwidth, or with unlimited bandwidth for data center deployments. A software subscription must be selected for each ION device deployed. Options for software subscriptions include 25 Mbps, 50 Mbps, 150 Mbps, 250 Mbps, 500 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and data center. Prisma SD-WAN ION devices offer:. Zero-touch provisioning and deployment: Gain the advantage of automatic configuration and device claiming.
Features and Benefits:
Instant visibility into application performance: Understand how applications are performing and identify the root cause of app performance issues. Cloud and SaaS application deployment confidence: Meet the performance and availability demands required, including remote office WAN high availability, bandwidth, consistent latency, and dynamic path selection.
- Alongside these benefits, take advantage of:. Deep SD-WAN analysis: Prisma SD-WAN provides unparalleled, actionable insights into the health and performance of your WAN application and links to help with network planning, problem resolution, and analytics.
- With instant visibility into application performance, you can better understand your network health and usage to determine more effective policy decisions on your network.
- Network DVR license: With this optional license, you can retain and access up to 90 days of statistics, policy, configuration, alarms, and alerts.
- Network DVR is licensed per ION device.WAN reporting license: With this optional license, you have access to auto-generated and downloadable reports giving network operators insight across various dimensions of their entire Prisma SD-WAN fabric; for example, utilization trends and hotspots to help customers determine if you need to do circuit upgrades or simply adjust your policies.

Zone-based firewall license: Prisma SD-WAN ION devices include an application-based, zone-based firewall (ZBFW) configured using the same top-down, applicationcentric policies used for performance and path selection, ensuring compliance across different network circuits and interfaces.
Our ZBFW is a lightweight security solution used for securing the WAN perimeter and segmenting traffic within a branch site. Further, ION devices can be configured to use on-premises security devices or external, hosted security services to provide further security for remote offices.
Prisma SD-WAN CloudBlades: The CloudBlades platform enables API-based integration of the branch CPE and provides a centralized platform for programming as well as an app-flow engine at the CPE, access to Prisma SD-WAN telemetry, and secure authenticated API access to Prisma SD-WAN CPE and systems.
As a result, businesses can easily enable the cloud-delivered branch and simplify management and operations.
High availability (HA): ION devices feature the industry’s only HA deployment model that can survive a device failure and still preserve 100% of WAN capacity at a branch site. It’s no secret that organizations worldwide are undergoing a network transformation. Cloud migration, the need for infrastructure automation, and the availability of cost-effective and high-performance broadband are all fueling this change.
With these three fundamental shifts, traditional wide area network (WAN) architectures that rely on multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks to connect branch offices to data centers have been rendered ineffective.
This has seen the rise of the software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), which promises to enable organizations to seamlessly embrace the benefits of network transformation and remove any limitations from legacy WAN architectures.
