    F5 Networks

    by F5 Networks

    The demand for the internet is overwhelming and IP address availability is becoming more limited. IPv6 fixes the problem but migrating from the current standard of IPv4 can’t happen overnight. F5 has a solution that allows both IPv4 and IPv6 to work simultaneously during the migration without causing an interruption to your services or more importantly, your customers. By using BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager ™(LTM) you can: • create an IPv6 DNS entry for your F5 LTM that compliments your IPv4 DNS entry • access your network with either IPv6 or IPv4 and still get to any of your backend servers • enable live sessions between customer devices and back-end core services The following video in the Service Provider Series explains the necessity of switching from IPv4 to IPv6 and how F5 can help manage the migration using BIG-IP LTM.
