Evaluation of LTE-M towards 5G IoT requirements

March 1, 2018

LTE-M, a machine-focused variant of the 3GPP LTE standard, is designed to meet the high-coverage, low-cost, and lowpower consumption requirements of the Internet of Things (IoT). In January 2017, a group of more than a dozen industry players evaluated LTE-M’s coverage performance, and published a white paper which concludes that LTE-M supports the very deep coverage required for IoT applications [1]. This follow-up paper takes the next step to evaluate the message latency, battery life, and capacity performance for LTE-M category-M1 devices.

Cisco ACI and F5 BIG-IP Design Guide

whitePaper | May 12, 2022

The document discusses load balancer design considerations and deployment options in Cisco ACI, specifically with F5 BIG-IP from three aspects: network design, F5 design, and multi-tenant design. This document covers features up to Cisco ACI Release 5.2. One of the key considerations of the network design with load balancer is to ensure incoming and return traffic go through the same load balancer (one exception is direct server return (DSR), which doesn't have this requirement). There are various options you can use to insert the load balancer. One way is to use the load balancer as a gateway for servers or as a routing next hop for routing instances. Another option is to use Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) on the load balancer or use ACI Policy-Based Redirect (PBR) to make the return traffic go back to the load balancer.
