Application Traffic Management

Application traffic management refers to the methodology that F5 pioneered for intercepting, inspecting, translating, and directing Web traffic to the optimum resource based on specific business policies. It allows network administrators to apply availability, scalability, security, and performance standards to any IP-based application, significantly increasing overall network application performance.

The F5 BIG-IP® product family optimizes the filtering and routing of any IP traffic to the best application or Web service, based upon content encapsulated in a packet's header or payload. The result is a dramatic gain in operational efficiency as well as cost savings.
