PA-7000 Series Firewall Network Processing Cards with Double the Session Capacity
Two new Network Processing Cards (NPCs) are now available to double the session capacity of previously released NPCs.
  • PA-7000-20GXM
    —Doubles the memory of the PA-7000-20G NPC, enabling support for eight million sessions (up from four million). This NPC has twelve RJ-45 10/100/1000Mbps ports, eight SFP ports, and four SFP+ ports.
  • PA-7000-20GQXM
    —Doubles the memory of the PA-7000-20GQ NPC, enabling support for eight million sessions (up from four million). This NPC has twelve SFP+ ports and two QSFP ports.
For example, installing ten PA-7000-20GXM NPCs in a PA-7080 firewall enables support for up to 80 million sessions.
All PA-7000 Series NPCs are compatible with each other, so you can install any combination of them in a PA-7050 or PA-7080 firewall.
You must upgrade the firewall to PAN-OS 7.1 before you install a PA-7000-20GXM or PA-7000-20GQXM NPC. For more information, refer to the PA-7000 Series Hardware Reference Guide.
