GigaVUE® H Series by Gigamon

High-density, High-scale Traffic Visibility Fabric™ Nodes

A variety of systems are deployed throughout Enterprise and Service Provider infrastructure to provide visibility of the traffic traversing production networks. These systems are only as effective as the traffic and communications that they can see; limit visibility to the traffic, and the value of the monitoring, management or security system is equally limited. IT Managers therefore attempt to connect the systems at the most appropriate location within the environment, although the definition of “most appropriate” changes frequently due to the dynamic nature of the network and the systems that connect to that network.

As requirements on networking and infrastructure continued to demand more flexible, scalable and versatile solutions, Gigamon pioneered a new approach to deliver pervasive and extensible visibility into the network. Understanding the criticality and priority of one communication flow over another, one application over another, and one packet over another, created the foundation for the development of the Traffic Visibility Fabric. The Gigamon Visibility Fabric is a truly pervasive framework, able to see across the boundary of physical and virtual, and therefore able to see into the cloud and provide the clarity that is essential to secure maintain, and support network-based services and applications.

 

GigaVUE® G Series by Gigamon

The GigaVUE-212 is an entry level Traffic Visibility Fabric Node that aggregates, replicates, filters and distributes traffic across multiple passive monitoring tools at a fraction of the cost of similar devices. The node supports eight 1Gb ports and two 10Gb ports with an optional expansion module supporting another four 1Gb ports.

The GigaVUE-212 is ideal for Enterprises which either require a cost-effective solution to enhance their network monitoring architecture, or where specific areas of the network require lower port counts to create a Traffic Visibility Fabric. With support for multiple out-of-band tools, the GigaVUE-212 enables Enterprises to connect any traffic flow to any tool using intelligent and powerful filtering logic.
