Hi Farina,

This is Steven.
I'm not sure what kind of PoC you are preparing for, so maybe I cannot give you very specific tips, but there are some general ones that you may consider.

1. The target of your test.  
What is your main purpose of this test, to prove a particular feature, to confirm performance/stability, etc?

2. What needs to be prepared?
This part will help you clarify what kind of things you need to prepare, maybe just an NGAF appliance, or maybe additional components like VMs.
And usually, you need to tell your clients/customers how to support you in the PoC, e.g., get ready for downtime, provide the previous NGFW configuration guide, etc.
Read the documents in this post to let you know more about the PoC best practices.

3. Get every ready and follow the best practice.
After you get ready for everything, go on-site and follow the best practice for the setup and test.

At last, the most important and maybe the most helpful tip, you don't always need to handle PoC all alone. If you are not familiar with Sangfor NGAF PoC yet, feel free to contact Sangfor local office, Sangfor Service Center to get help!

Hope this answer will help you~
