Use Case: Configure Active/Active HA with Route-Based Redundancy

The following Layer 3 topology illustrates two PA-7050 firewalls in an active/active HA environment that use Route-Based Redundancy. The firewalls belong to an OSPF area. When a link or firewall fails, OSPF handles the redundancy by redirecting traffic to the functioning firewall.
