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.
