Routed Mode Essentials
In routed mode, a threat defense acts like a Layer 3 hop. Each interface on a threat defense can be connected to a different subnet, and the threat defense can act as the default gateway for that subnet. The threat defense can also route traffic between different subnets, like a Layer 3 router.
Figure 4-1 shows how a host interacts with a threat defense as its next Layer 3 hop. In routed mode, each threat defense interface connects to a unique subnet.
