The GigaVUE-212 is an entry level Traffic Visibility Node which aggregates, multicasts, filters and divides traffic flows across multiple passive monitoring tools at a fraction of the cost of similar devices. The switch supports twelve 1GE ports and two 10GE ports with an optional expansion module for support of another four 1GE failover protected ports.

The GigaVUE-212 is ideal for data centers and enterprises either requiring a low-cost option in order to enhance network monitoring for the first time, or have areas of the networks where lower port counts are needed to support comprehensive monitoring.

With support for plug-in of multiple out-of-band tools, the GigaVUE-212 enables enterprises and data centers to connect any tool to any data stream simultaneously.

Number of 10Gbps Ports:   (2) SFP+

Number of 1Gbps Ports:     (8) SFP

*Optional expansion module: additional (4) 1Gbps ports.
