Istio Ingress can operate at the L4 and L7 layers to manage and secure traffic at the edge in cloud-native applications. It supports various network protocols such as HTTP, gRPC, TCP, etc.

Without proper documentation to implement Istio Ingress in the enterprise, DevOps and architects can find themselves in a soup while adopting Istio service mesh in their Kubernetes ecosystem.
