IP Address Sharing in Large Scale Networks: DNS64/NAT64 (BIG-IP v10: LTM)

This deployment guide details how to configure the BIG-IP LTM to address the looming IPv4 global address depletion dilemma, as well as for large organizations who want to deploy a large IPv4 private network or global IPv6 network internally (NAT64 and DNS64). 

While there are a number of possible ways to configure F5 devices to address these issues, this document focuses on two solutions that are
straightforward and easy to implement. This guide is broken up into two sections that give step-by-step guidance on how to configure the BIG-IP LTM for configuring the BIG-IP LTM for the private IPv4 network, and configuring the BIG-IP LTM for global IPv6 with DNS64 and NAT64.

The following diagram shows the scenario for configuring the BIG-IP LTM for global IPv6 with DNS64 and NAT64 described in the deployment guide.
