Adapt your network to a 5G world.

5G networks offer opportunities to broaden the value that your network brings by connecting more people and more IoT devices in more ways. With the sheer number of devices projected, there’s immense pressure to scale networks while maintaining reliability and performance. And of course, with more connections, come more threats. Properly securing networks in a 5G world is complicated, yet vital.

F5 offers solutions to help you scale and secure your network, expand your service portfolio, quickly launch new services, and experiment without impacting your entire network. Our solutions cover your network from the edge through the core, from the data center to the cloud.

Protect your network infrastructure at every layer.

Increasing and evolving threats require a multi-faceted approach. Security measures should be applied across every domain in service provider networks, as well as between users and the applications they are accessing across your network. F5 solutions provide multi-layer and multi-domain protection.

F5 and NEBS compliance.

Equipment deployed in a provider network needs to be safe, reliable, and easy to deploy. Critical F5 service provider products are Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS) compliant. The NEBS standards in GR-63 (minimum spatial and environmental criteria) and GR-1089 (Electromagnetic Compatibility and Electrical Safety) provide uniform criteria for equipment design intended to reduce the cost of deployment and maintain reliability of the network, even in extreme conditions. These standards are why telephones work after an extreme event, like an earthquake or a severe thunderstorm. NEBS requirements are utilized all over the world for a host of commercial, utility, and defense applications.
