F5 Networks, Inc. engages in developing and providing software-defined application services. The company’s main technology is a full-proxy, programmable, massively-scalable software platform called TMOS (Traffic Management Operating System). The TMOS platform supports a range of application services, including local and global traffic management, network and application security, access management, Web acceleration and various other network and application services. These services are available as software modules that can run individually or as part of an integrated solution on its BIG-IP appliances and chassis-based VIPRION systems; or as software-only Virtual Editions that run on all major hypervisors. Its cloud-based Silverline offerings allow customers to subscribe to online denial-of-service protection and application security services. In conjunction with its BIG-IQ management software, the availability of the company’s application services as software on its purpose-built hardware, software-only and cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) gives customers the flexibility to create a dynamic hybrid infrastructure with policies and centralized management across private and public clouds, as well as traditional data centers. The company’s hardware products include its BIG-IP family of appliances and its line of scalable VIPRION systems. The company launched its cloud-based Silverline SaaS platform that allows customers to deploy enterprise-grade application services across hybrid environments without upfront investments in IT infrastructure and support. The company offers a range of services, including consulting, training, installation, maintenance and other technical support services. Solutions The company’s integrated family of TMOS-based network and application services are available as software modules on its purpose-built hardware, as virtual (software-only) editions or virtual editions that run on standard hypervisors, and as online services on its Silverline SaaS platform. These products function as strategic points of control in Internet protocol networks, inspecting, modifying and directing traffic to optimize the security, availability and delivery of applications and data to any user, anywhere, anytime and on any device. Its Traffix Diameter signaling and routing solutions address the complex needs of service providers and complement its TMOS-based products by enabling communications among the elements of their legacy infrastructures and their evolving packet-based 4G/LTE networks and data centers. The company offers solutions that include application security, secure remote access, firewall protection, WAN optimization, access policy management, carrier grade network address translation, Diameter signaling policy enforcement, and fraud detection, opening up large opportunities in various adjacent markets. Software The core of the company’s application delivery technology is TMOS, its Traffic Management Operating System. The full-proxy characteristics of the TMOS architecture enable the company’s products to intercept, inspect and act on the contents of traffic from every type of Internet protocol-enabled application. TMOS TMOS includes various features and functions that are unique to its products: iApps is a set of portable, customizable, reusable templates that enable the rapid and predictable deployment of the company’s products in front of dozens of applications from vendors, including Microsoft Devices Group (Microsoft), Oracle, VMware, Citrix, BEA, and SAP. iApps also allows customers and partners to create templates that simplify the deployment and provisioning of their own applications. iCall is a control plane scripting framework that provides the ability to define data plane events, such as threshold breaches and adjust the behavior of its products accordingly. iCall enables administrators to react to specified data plane events by executing services on the management plane. It can also be used periodically to manage backups or repopulate DNS, or to provide regularly scheduled services, such as configuration audits. iRules is a built-in scripting language tha
