The worldwide proliferation of wireless and Internet-enabled devices has led to the rapid depletion of IPv4 addresses. Communications service providers need to manage IPv4 address depletion and optimize network performance by seamlessly migrating to IPv6. BIG-IP Carrier-Grade NAT (CGNAT) offers a broad set of tools that enables service providers to successfully migrate to IPv6 while continuing to support and interoperate with existing IPv4 devices and content.

- Gain a flexible set of tools to facilitate your IPv6 migration plan
With multiple deployment options to manage IPv4 address depletion and IPv6 migration, you can ensure compatibility in your network between legacy IPv4 and IPv6 endpoints and content. BIG-IP CGNAT gives you the flexibility to choose which migration strategy best fits your timeline.
- Get best-in-class performance and scalability
Maintain optimal, carrier-grade performance, scalability, and service uptime during your migration to IPv6. With BIG-IP CGNAT, you can scale up to 480 million concurrent sessions and up to 320 Gbps throughput at Layer 7. High-speed logging (HSL) capabilities further improve performance.
- Reduce server costs and management complexity
Reduce CapEx and OpEx by optimizing your existing network infrastructure and consolidating core elements. Based on an intelligent services framework, BIG-IP CGNAT integrates functionality onto a unified, easy-to-manage platform.
- Network address translation
BIG-IP CGNAT provides network address translation (NAT) that enables you to continue delivering IPv4 connectivity and handle high amounts of concurrent sessions as you manage IPv4 address depletion and plan for a seamless migration to IPv6.
- Application-layer gateway support
Application-layer gateway (ALG) support enables you to seamlessly translate services such as SIP and RTSP without disruptions in video and voice calls.
- Scalable and flexible logging
Extensive, flexible, and highly scalable logging capabilities can generate millions of logging records and export them to a system logging server.
- Tunneling with DS-Lite
For service providers that have implemented an IPv6 network, yet need to support legacy IPv4 endpoints and IPv4 content, BIG-IP CGNAT offers a DS-Lite tunneling solution. You can deploy an IPv6-only access and aggregation network while still providing service to IPv4 destinations.
- Security defense throughout the network
BIG-IP CGNAT incorporates carrier-grade security into high-performance platforms for the core network, data center, and control and signaling plane.
- Platform consolidation
Rather than deploying multiple point products from separate vendors, you can consolidate important functions such as traffic steering, network/Gi firewall, policy enforcement, and control plane scaling on a unified platform.
- Improved business flexibility
With the F5 iRules scripting language, you can read and modify all traffic in any direction, prioritize critical traffic during sudden traffic bursts, and filter out unwanted traffic - all without impacting real-time services.
- Increased business responsiveness
F5 iApps gives you a powerful set of features to unify, simplify, and control your entire application delivery network. You get a contextual view of your application services and can easily configure your network for translation and tunneling services.
