F5 BIG-IP 12000 series Application Delivery Controller platforms 12250v

F5 BIG-IPApplication Delivery Controller (ADC) platforms can manage even the heaviest traffic loads at both layer 4 and layer 7.


F5 BIG-IP 12000 series Application Delivery Controller platforms 12250v


F5 BIG-IPApplication Delivery Controller (ADC) platforms can manage even the heaviest traffic loads at both layer 4 and layer 7. By merging high-performance switching fabric, specialized hardware, and advanced software, F5 provides the exibility to make in-depth application decisions without introducing bottlenecks.


With the high performance you get from BIG-IP platforms, you can consolidate devices— saving management costs, electricity, space, and cooling—and still have room to grow. 


BIG-IP hardware includes:

• SSL hardware acceleration—Offload costly SSL processing and accelerate key exchange and bulk encryption with best-in-market SSL performance.

• Hardware compression*—Cost-effectively of oad traffic compression processing from your servers to improve page load times and reduce bandwidth utilization.

• OneConnectTM connection pooling—Aggregate millions of TCP requests into hundreds of server-side connections. Increase server capacity and ensure requests are handled ef ciently.

• Embedded Packet Velocity Acceleration (ePVA)*—Provide specific application delivery optimizations, support for low latency and tunneling protocols, and denial-of-service (DoS) protection. ePVA uses eld-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology tightly integrated with TMOS and software to deliver:

  • High performance interconnect between Ethernet ports and processors.

  • L4 offload, enabling leading throughput and reduced load on software.

  • Hardware-accelerated SYN ood protection.

  • More than 65 types of DoS attacks detected and mitigated in hardware.

  • Native network overlay (VXLAN/NVGRE) support. 


2.benefits& advantages

Consolidate your infrastructure with purpose-built hardware

BIG-IP hardware platforms are designed specifically for application delivery performance and scalability. One device can be configured for server load balancing, global data center load balancing, DNS services, web application rewall, access management, web performance optimization, and WAN optimization. 

Offload application servers

BIG-IP platforms feature high-performance SSL and compression hardware, as well as advanced connection management, so that you can remove processing-intensive tasks from application servers, consolidate devices, and use these resources more ef ciently. 

Secure your network

Instantly add layer 3–7 protection with ICSA Certified BIG-IP platforms that provide default deny security, a full packet filter engine that limits access in a granular way, and an industry- leading web application rewall. 

Reduce your operating costs

Spend less time on configuration, upgrades, and maintenance with the simple-to-manage BIG-IP hardware, featuring out-of-band management, front-panel management, warm upgrades, remote boot, and USB support. Lower power and cooling costs in your data center with 80 Plus Gold and Platinum certified high-efficiency power supplies.

Maximize uptime

Ensure your critical infrastructure is built on reliable hardware with hot-swappable components, redundant power supplies, redundant fans, compact ash, multi-boot support, and always-on management. Appliances can be deployed in traditional active/standby configuration or horizontal clusters (active/active) to achieve high availability and application-level failover.
