Create a virtual server for web traffic over QUIC

You can create a virtual server on the BIG-IP system to manage web traffic that uses the transport-layer protocol QUIC instead of TCP. Once deployed, this virtual server causes the system to: listen for secure client web traffic sent over QUIC and UDP, decrypt the traffic, and forward the decrypted traffic to an application server pool over TCP.
