PAN-OS supports BFD on PA-3000 Series, PA-5000 Series, PA-7000 Series, and VM-Series firewalls. Each platform supports a maximum number of BFD sessions, as listed in the Product Selection tool.

Supported BFD clients are:
  • Static routes (IPv4 and IPv6) consisting of a single hop
  • OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 (interface types include broadcast, point-to point, and point-to-multipoint)
  • BGP IPv4 (IBGP, EBGP) consisting of a single hop or multiple hops
