BIG-IP Link Controller
Prevent Internet Service Disruptions
Enterprises rely on their Internet connections. Connection problems, however, can occur anywhere at anytime. Something as simple as a backhoe cutting into a buried cable could take a service provider offline.
That’s why most enterprises maintain multiple Internet connections. BIG-IP Link Controller (LC) intelligently controls the flow of traffic across those connections, preventing problems and making sure the fastest available connection is always in use.
Reliable Network Connectivity
BIG-IP Link Controller detects errors across an entire link to provide end-to-end, reliable WAN connectivity. It monitors the health and availability of each connection, detecting outages to a link or ISP. In the event of a failure, traffic is dynamically directed across other available links so users and external customers stay connected.
Maximize Bandwidth and ROI
The BIG-IP Link Controller’s optional compression module enables you to intelligently compress traffic, reduce WAN link bandwidth for lower ISP costs, and cut down on bandwidth bottlenecks for faster application delivery. Regardless of the link type or provider, BIG-IP LC can aggregate smaller, less expensive lines to lower your bandwidth redundancy costs, while minimizing the amount of money spent on dark fiber or unused standby lines.
BIG-IP Link Controller is available as a standalone version, and also as a product module for BIG-IP.
