With all of the new rich applications and technology in the world today load balancing is becoming more complicated. Traditional load balancers are not able to handle asynchronous messaging such as diameter. F5’s BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager ™ (LTM) is built to handle complex protocols such as SIP and Diameter. Furthermore, F5 designed their BIG-IP Application Delivery Controller to handle asynchronous traffic flows. BIG-IP LTM provides the ability to allow: • aggregated messages • asynchronous messaging • server-client messaging This video in the Service Provider Series shows the challenges other load balancers face while showing how to tackle these challenges using BIG-IP LTM to create solutions for fast, reliable, efficient IP networks.
