I could be wrong but with their aquisition of Traffix Systems (another Israeli company) it seems they have moved into the Wireless Company Division.

F5 has been able to enhance the performance of Diameter messaging in ways similar to those it uses for other traffic. With Traffix integration, it has the potential to go beyond this to become an
enforcement point that can control subscriber access and experience. This integration would have Traffix controllers signaling F5 equipment as a subscriber's service requests are processed. The F5 gear would then manage that user's traffic flows according to the terms of their service agreements. It could also tag traffic to pass service and user information on to other applications in order to build enhanced services.


While F5 Networks has primarily been a data networking vendor,
as much as 25% of its business has been with carriers and telcos
looking to manage growth and scale. The next generation of
wireless networking, 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE), sports a new
control plane protocol named Diameter to manage the additional
service density that this convergence can deliver. While F5 had
some capability in this market, it has acquired Traffix Systems to
give it depth in management and control in what it sees as an
expanding frontier in networking.


I dont believe they have deployed 4G lte in the IT infastructure yet :)
