F5 BIG-IP Administrator

f5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) provides intelligent traffic management for rapid application deployment, optimization, load-balancing, and offloading. BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) ensures to entail deep understanding of network’s application traffic and control over and how it should be handled. It is designed to modify and transform the chaotic volume of network traffic into logically assembled streams of data. It then makes intelligent traffic management decisions thereby, selecting the right destination based on server performance, security, and availability. These courses give network professionals a functional understanding of BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) introducing students to both commonly used and advanced LTM features.

f5 BIG-IP Administrator Certification includes;

Exam 101 – Application Delivery Fundamentals
Exam 201 – TMOS Administration
