The time to transition is now.

In reality, IPv4 is already outdated. With global IP addresses at their limit, it’s best to make the shift to IPv6 sooner rather than later. But what are the costs of switching? With BIG-IP Carrier-Grade NAT (CGNAT), not much.

Upgrade without sacrifice.

We’re in a strange place right now: IPv4 is spoken for and IPv6 is already in play, gaining more ground as we move forward. Simply switching to IPv6 opens you up to interoperability issues with IPv4 devices, websites, and services.

But with BIG-IP CGNAT, you don’t have to choose. You can easily communicate with new IPv6 addresses, with flawless IPv4 backwards compatibility.
