GigaVUE-HD4

High-density, Medium Form-Factor Visibility Fabric Node

A significant challenge faced by IT professionals is to effectively manage and monitor infrastructure in the midst of rapidly rising volumes of network traffic. The GigaVUE-HD4 fabric node addresses this challenge with its modular, high-density and high-bandwidth design.

The 5RU, rack-mountable, chassis-based GigaVUE-HD4 provides intelligent traffic visibility in a smaller form factor for today’s faster speed networks. With a 1.2Tb, non-blocking backplane, it can accommodate speeds of 1Gb, 10Gb, 40Gb, and 100Gb

A modular design and clustering capabilities allows the GigaVUE-HD4 fabric node to easily scale as network needs evolve. It can accommodate thousands of map rules with Gigamon’s patented Flow Mapping® technology and features some of the industry’s highest density line cards. Optional GigaSMART® functions including de-duplication, Adaptive Packet Filtering, NetFlow Generation, header stripping, GTP Correlation, and FlowVUE™ optimize performance by providing only the most relevant information to the monitoring and analytic tools.

The GigaVUE® fabric nodes are designed to work together to create an intelligent and pervasive Visibility Fabric™ architecture to aggregate, replicate and filter traffic flows from across broad networks to the appropriate, centralized management, monitoring or security systems.
