Edge traffic aggregation nodes

The GigaVUE® TA Series edge nodes aggregate multiple low-utilization network links — optimizing, filtering, and feeding the combined traffic to GigaVUE H Series products, where additional traffic intelligence can be applied. GigaVUE TA Series helps optimize and secure data center infrastructure at the server edge.

Use cases for GigaVUE TA Series

Use cases for GigaVUE TA Series

  • Aggregation of multiple SPAN/TAP traffic feeds into higher-speed uplinks
  • Extending reach and density of the Visibility Platform across the data center
  • Visibility into leaf/spine architectures for security and performance monitoring
  • Top of rack deployment, consolidating traffic to GigaVUE H Series node at end of row
  • Data center upgrades moving to Cisco BiDi infrastructures

Secure and optimize traffic at the network edge

Effective network visibility, network monitoring and network security begins with a properly constructed GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platform at the edge. The edge typically includes traffic running over 1Gb or 10Gb links (but as high as 40Gb and 100Gb), often at very low utilizations (<5%). GigaVUE-TA200 supports 25Gb. The GigaVUE TA Series edge nodes aggregate multiple low-utilization links, apply sophisticated Flow Mapping® and egress filters to optimize traffic flow, and forward traffic of interest to GigaVUE H Series products.Additional Flow Mapping® and traffic intelligence via GigaSMART® can then be applied to the aggregated traffic. GigaVUE-FM provides centralized management and control and programmable APIs for Software-Defined Visibility. Optional clustering allows full end-to-end traffic mapping and seamless integration with the GigaVUE H Series and GigaSMART. By tapping all the links and aggregating using the GigaVUE TA Series, data centers can secure and optimize their infrastructure at the server edge.
