Support IPv6 over SD-WAN

L0 Member



I am a Palo Alto newbie and working on a project to migrate from MPLS to Prisma SD-WAN and we are at the beginning stages of design.  We support IPv6 to the edge today (i.e. IPv6 on servers and desktops).   Is there design documentation available on how to support IPv6 over SD-WAN.  Do we tunnel it inside IPv4, If out transport provider (i.e. MPLS or Broadband Internet) can give us IPv6 native can we utilize that like IP4?   Something clear and with pictures would be appreciated as we have to brief Executive


Thank you,

Hello @hh4534


Prisma SD-WAN does support IPv6 for underlay as well as overlay. You will not have an issue if your service provider give you native IPv6 connection.

Unfortunately, I have not found from publicly available resources any presentation you asked for. If you have Palo Alto sales contact I would reach them for presentation or request demo from here (scroll to the bottom).


Kind Regards

Thank you.  Is there something publicly available for how overlay would work that we could use explain how IPv6 could be transported over it (our current requirement is IPv4 only underlay as we cannot get commitment from all providers for IPv6 Global addresses)?   I have not had much luck with the Account Team.
