As part of the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric™ (VAF), GigaVUE-HC2 is an 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, Application Intelligence and Subscriber Intelligence

The GigaVUE-HC2 base chassis supports a range of pluggable modules, such as for SFP+ ports, QSFP+, ports, QSFP28 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.

With GigaVUE-FM, single pane-of-glass fabric management lets users manage and orchestrate the entire VAF, plus  use Fabric Maps to increase visibility scale and reach across hundreds of nodes.

  • Datacenter deployments with multiple groups sharing SPAN ports and TAP feeds
  • 5G and telco 4G/LTE environments
  • Secured environments requiring SSL/TLS decryption, including government agencies
  • Healthcare IT securing advanced medical systems while tracking compliance
  • Financial institutions with changing regulations and growing customer bases
