Learn about the PA-7000 100G NPC.
The following images show the PA-7000 100G NPCs and the table describes the NPC components.
SFP ports
Eight small form-factor pluggable (SFP/SFP+) 1Gbps/10Gbps Ethernet ports.
QSFP ports
Four quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP+/QSFP28) 40Gbps/100Gbps Ethernet ports as defined by the IEEE 802.3ba standard.
You can configure ports 25, 26, 27, and 28 as 40Gbps or 100Gbps. As of PAN-OS 10.0, you can breakout four ports from ports 9-24 at 10Gbps or 25Gbps each.
To properly breakout the QSFP ports, your transceiver must be either the PAN-QSFP-40GBASE-SR4 or PAN-QSFP28-100GBASE-SR4, and you must use an appropriate passive breakout cable.
LED dashboard
Five LEDs that provide NPC status. For details on the LEDs, see Interpret the PA-7000 100G NPC LEDs.
