BIG-IP Carrier-Grade NAT (CGNAT)

Stay ahead of the IPv4 to IPv6 migration.

IPV4 and IPV6

Migration Challenges

IPv4 addresses are a finite resource—one that is quickly running out. With global IP addresses at their limit, it’s best to make the shift to IPv6 sooner rather than later. BIG-IP Carrier-Grade NAT (CGNAT) supports both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses, without costly hardware upgrades. IPv4 packets are encapsulated in an IPv6 tunnel and sent to an external IPv4 destination.

Logging Efficiencies

Working smarter, saving money

BIG-IP CGNAT supports iPFIX to compress NAT logging, leading to high-speed logging capabilities. It reduces the amount of data per log entry, minimizing overall costs. BIG-IP CGNAT also enables high-speed log generation of individual security events.

Network Address Translation

The name says it all

NAT functionality includes:

• NAT44 to extend the use of IPv4 addresses.
• NAT 64 to allow IPv6 endpoints to access IPv4 content and destinations.
• DNS64 which uses DNS AAAA records so IPv4 addresses can be seen as IPv6.
