Visibility beyond the traditional data center.

Compact Intelligent Network Visibility Appliance

The GigaVUE-HC1 visibility node comes in a modular form-factor to address complex network visibility requirements for small to medium-sized enterprise and service provider networks and remote sites for any network. With a broad spectrum of traffic management capabilities and a versatile, high-performance, multi-purpose design, GigaVUE-HC1 helps to future-proof your out-of-band and in-line monitoring and security infrastructure.


Analyze traffic and identify security threats with NetFlow.


As part of Gigamon Hawk, the Hybrid Cloud Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric™ (VAF), GigaVUE-HC1 is a compact advanced visibility node that incorporates a broad spectrum of core intelligence packet brokering capabilities, provided by GigaVUE-OS, and intelligent GigaSMART® traffic transformation and forwarding capabilities including Traffic Intelligence and Application Intelligence.

The GigaVUE-HC1 base chassis contains a built-in GigaSMART engine as well as RJ-45 and SFP+ ports. It also supports a range of pluggable modules, such as for SFP ports, SFP+ ports, QSFP+ ports, GigaSMART engines, fiber network TAPs, fiber bypass TAPs and copper bypass/network TAPs. The bypass TAP port-pairs have programmable fail open (fail-to-wire) or fail closed (block) protection.

GigaVUE-FM provides single-pane-of-glass view fabric management through which users can manage and orchestrate the entire VAF as well as use Fabric Maps to increase visibility scale and reach across hundreds of nodes.

  • Small enterprises that need network traffic visibility for security and network monitoring
  • Remote sites requiring analysis of metadata and/or raw traffic feeds
  • Service providers wanting to maximize service assurance and experience of subscribers by monitoring traffic at edge sites
  • Healthcare, education and financial IT departments securing sensitive data across a distributed infrastructure
