Best Solution for New Design

L1 Bithead


first time for me write in PaloAlto forum I hope to find my answer here.


first, we have purchased PaloAlto 3020, and need the best design for the network securityز


My network content "1" switch L3 and "2" switches L2 


and we have VLANs  for users and voice and guest and printers


and also we have WIFI for staff and WIFI for the guest and every WIFI have VLAN tags, the staff user has an account on Active Directory and authenticate from Radius Server

The guest can access the internet through Cisco AP internal Radius through 


ok now we will implement the PaloAlto, what is the best design for User staff and the guest and BYOD?


and it will be a difference between the wifi and wired connection in the police? or the same policy will be applied on wifi will be applied on the Cable connection?

There are many different ways to implement a secure solution. Perhaps it would help if you can answer the following:

  1. How are the devices connected now, physically and logically.
  2. Where do the current vlans terminate, on the L3 switch?

By getting to know your current network layout a bit, will help us suggest a layout that incorporates the PAN. No reason to rebuild everything if you dont have to.
