GigaVUE-HD8

Purpose-built, High-density Intelligent Visibility Fabric Node

As enterprises, data centers and service providers respond to the ever-increasing volume of network traffic and the need to effectively and efficiently manage their environment, they look to Gigamon® for a scalable, pervasive, and intelligent monitoring infrastructure platform. 

With a 2.5Tb backplane, the high-performance GigaVUE-HD8 was purpose-built to handle speeds of 1Gb, 10Gb, 40Gb, and 100Gb It is first in its category to break the terabit backplane barrier and support 100Gb blades. 

The 14RU high, rack-mountable GigaVUE-HD8 fabric node with its modular design and clustering capabilities allows you to build a scalable platform for a monitoring infrastructure that can address today’s and tomorrow’s needs. It can accommodate thousands of map rules and features some of the industry’s highest density line cards with up to 64 x 40Gb, or 256 x 10Gb ports, or 384 x 1Gb ports in maximum configuration.

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