Enterprise-grade load balancing for fast application delivery Get load balancing that includes granular layer 7 control, SSL offloading and acceleration, and on-demand scaling.



The BIG-IP platform is a smart evolution of Application Delivery Controller (ADC) technology. Solutions built on this platform are load balancers plus full proxies that give visibility into, and the power to control, all the traffic that passes through your network.

Full proxy means full power

Performance optimization

Because BIG-IP LTM is a full proxy, you can inspect, manage, and report on application traffic entering and exiting your network. From basic load balancing to complex traffic management decisions based on client, server, or application status, BIG-IP LTM gives you granular control over app traffic. BIG-IP LTM can optimize the speed and reliability of your applications via both network and application layers. Using real-time protocol and traffic management decisions based on application and server conditions, extensive connection management, and TCP and content offloading, BIG-IP LTM dramatically improves page load times. 

Blazing fast SSL


The SSL performance of BIG-IP LTM lets you cost-effectively protect the end-to-end user experience by encrypting everything from the client to the server. It also scales on-demand and absorbs potentially crippling DDoS attacks. BIG-IP LTM includes levels of inspection necessary to block bad traffic and allow good traffic to pass through.traffic and allow good traffic to pass through. BIG-IP LTM is programmable, so you can take the visibility and control it provides and immediately act on it using iRules, F5’s event-driven scripting language. From defeating zero-day attacks to cloning specific app requests or dealing with custom application protocols, iRules let you adapt to application delivery challenges across any environment.

TCP Optimization

Scale and Speed

The highly optimized TCP/IP stack, TCP Express, combines TCP/IP techniques and improvements in the latest RFCs with extensions to minimize the effect of congestion and packet loss and recovery. Independent testing tools and customer experiences show TCP Express delivers up to a 2x performance gain for users and a 4x increase in bandwidth efficiency.     With BIG-IP LTM, you get a sophisticated, enterprise-class load balancer. You also get granular layer 7 control, SSL offloading and acceleration capabilities, and ScaleN technology that delivers on-demand scaling.


Keep your apps up and running with BIG-IP application delivery controllers. BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) and BIG-IP DNS handle your application traffic and secure your infrastructure. You’ll get built-in security, traffic management, and performance application services, whether your applications live in a private data center or in the cloud.


BIG-IP Diameter Traffic Management, BIG-IP Policy Enforcement Manager (PEM), and BIG-IP Carrier-Grade NAT (CGNAT) manage network resources to keep your applications performing at carrier-grade levels. They also help you identify ways to optimize and monetize your network, improving your bottom line.


Get the right platform for your business, whether you deploy your applications on-premises, in the cloud, or both. Hardware appliances include the new BIG-IP iSeries or our high-performing VIPRION chassis and blades. Software options are available through BIG-IP virtual edition or BIG-IP Cloud Edition.
