Traffic intelligence for the most demanding networks

Modular, High-Capacity Intelligent Network Visibility Appliance

The GigaVUE-HC3 visibility node comes in a modular form factor to address complex network visibility requirements for medium to large global 5,000 enterprise, government-agency and service-provider networks. With a broad spectrum of traffic management capabilities and a versatile, high-performance, multi-purpose design, GigaVUE-HC3 helps to future-proof your out-of-band and in-line monitoring and security infrastructures.



Analyze traffic and identify security threats with NetFlow.


As part of Gigamon Hawk, the Hybrid Cloud Visibility and Analytics Fabric™ (VAF), GigaVUE-HC3 is an advanced visibility node that incorporates a broad spectrum of core intelligence packet-brokering capabilities, provided by GigaVUE-OS, along with intelligent GigaSMART® traffic transformation and forwarding capabilities, including Traffic Intelligence, Application Intelligence and Subscriber Intelligence.

The GigaVUE-HC3 base chassis supports a range of pluggable modules, such as SFP+ ports, SFP28 ports, QSFP28 ports, GigaSMART engines and fiber bypass TAPs. The bypass TAP port-pairs have programmable fail open (fail-to-wire) or fail closed (block) protection.

Users can manage and orchestrate their entire VAF using GigaVUE-FM single-pane-of-glass fabric management, as well as use Fabric Maps to increase visibility scale and reach across hundreds of nodes.
