Manages links to distribute inbound and outbound traffic with greater efficiency and resiliency.
Application availability is critical, but unresponsive ISP connections can bring the whole system to a grinding halt. BIG-IP Link Controller manages and reroutes connections based on link type and quality, ensuring that users have a better experience while reducing downtime.
* Currently not available in the United States.
Comprehensive link monitoring provides an overall view of inbound and outbound link performance. With better visibility, BIG-IP Link Controller quickly responds to connection demands at any given moment, redirecting traffic as needed and keeping your application available.
BIG-IP Link Controller works with the iRules scripting language, so you can customize how traffic routes over multiple WAN links and defined TCP/IP parameters. iRules lets you implement policies based on application type, service quality, and client types, resulting in more reliable connections and a better user experience.
“Applications are 30% faster. This means we can successfully process a lot more transactions.”

BIG-IP Link Controller tests link performance, then routes users to the best possible connection. This active monitoring adjusts to variables like throughput, traffic flow, and ISP availability, increasing application performance and redistributing traffic to reduce link saturation.
Efficient bandwidth saves money and improves performance. By classifying and prioritizing traffic, BIG-IP Link Controller lets you determine how traffic resources are used. Identify critical traffic or applications for special handling by upstream routers, set spike and burst limits, and aggregate inexpensive links to lower bandwidth costs.

BIG-IP virtual editions have the same features as those that run on F5 purpose-built hardware—and you can deploy them on any leading hypervisor or select cloud providers.
Silverline services are 100 percent managed by F5 experts, so you can deploy enterprise-grade app services across environments—without upfront investments in IT infrastructure and support.
F5 application services work exactly the same way in the public and private cloud as they do in the data center.
Optimize connections for better application performance.
Route traffic based on user location and predefined policies.
Reduce file size for better use of WAN link bandwidth and optimized connection types.
Eliminate deployment barriers and reduce the cost of multi-homing via Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).
