In Prisma Access, Americas, APAC, and Europe are three different theaters worldwide. Each theater is assigned multiple IP pool blocks. When a tenant has to on-board a new client, it picks an IP pool block from one of these theaters depending on the region from where the tenant on-boards the client. The clients are assigned IP addresses from the pool until the last one in the block is used. Each theater contains mappings to the different Prisma Access locations that fall within its geographical boundary.
