Maximum number of virtual wire on PA 500

Hi all,

   I try to found the suitable PAN model for support my environment.  I design PAN to support 2 virtual wire and 1 NAT network. I'm not sure that PA 500 will support 2 virtual wire. I prefer throughput and session number that support by PA500.

Thank you
