Learn about how to configure circuits in Prisma SD-WAN.
Circuits consist of circuit categories which
are used in policy rules to identify paths allowed for an application.
By default, there are a few pre-defined circuit categories in the
system that you can use when configuring circuits.
circuits, use the optimum parameters for the circuit based on the
circuit category. For example, when using metered circuit categories
in circuits, ensure that you minimize metered LTE
