Versatile, high-performance network traffic visibility

Modular, Multi-Purpose Intelligent Network Visibility Appliance

The GigaVUE-HC2 visibility node comes in a modular, mid-sized form factor to address complex network visibility requirements for medium-sized enterprise and service provider networks. With a broad spectrum of traffic management capabilities and a versatile, high-performance, multi-purpose design, GigaVUE-HC2 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 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 IntelligenceApplication 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
