The worldwide proliferation of wireless and Internet-enabled devices has led to the rapid depletion of IPv4 addresses. One of the five RIRs (Regional Internet Registries) has exhausted its IPv4 allocations, and the rest are expected to deplete their pools within a few years; meanwhile, IPv6 adoption has been slower than predicted. Service providers need a solution that will help them manage IPv4 address depletion and increase network optimization by seamlessly migrating to IPv6.
F5 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. BIG-IP CGNAT offers service providers tunneling solutions with Dual-Stack Lite capabilities as well as native network address translation solutions, such as NAT44 and NAT64. It provides carrier-grade scalability by offering a very high number of IP address translations, very fast NAT translation setup rates, high throughput, and high-speed logging.
