GigaVUE TA Series

Edge Traffic Aggregation Nodes

As part of the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric™ (VAF), the GigaVUE® TA Series of visibility nodes aggregate traffic from SPAN ports and network TAP devices installed across the network, giving a pervasive view into information in motion. To address networks of different speeds (1G, 10G, 25G, 40G, 100G) and scales, the series consists of a number of appliance models to select from.

The GigaVUE TA Series incorporates a set of core packet brokering capabilities, referred to as core intelligence, which help improve efficiency and reduce costs.
 

Use cases for GigaVUE TA Series

Secure and Optimize Traffic at the Network Edge

Effective network visibility, network monitoring and network security begins with a properly constructed visibility and analytics fabric at the edge typically with traffic running over lower-speed links or relatively low utilization higher-speed links.

As part of the Gigamon VAF, GigaVUE TA Series consists of edge visibility nodes that run GigaVUE-OS, incorporating a range of core intelligence packet-brokering capabilities to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of monitoring tools and gain visibility into cloud and remote sites. Clustering GigaVUE TA Series nodes with GigaVUE HC Series nodes extends and enables more pervasive visibility.

GigaVUE-FM provides single-pane-of-glass fabric management through which users can manage and orchestrate the entire Gigamon VAF.

The GigaVUE TA Series is especially useful for:

  • Aggregating multiple SPAN/TAP traffic feeds into higher-speed uplinks
  • Extending reach and density of the VAF across the datacenter
  • Providing visibility into leaf/spine architectures for security and performance monitoring
  • Top of rack deployment, consolidating traffic to GigaVUE HC Series nodes at the end of row
  • Datacenter upgrades moving to Cisco BiDi infrastructures

Which GigaVUE TA Series Is Right for You?

Regardless of size, each appliance runs GigaVUE-OS, supports end-to-end orchestration with GigaVUE-FM and provides more intelligent traffic handling when combined with GigaVUE HC Series.

“My highest priority was finding a solution that allowed us to watch more than the ocean of data passing at the network border, that allowed us to sharpen our focus on the data we care about most. Now, we feel more comfortable that we’re not missing traffic and are better able to highlight and inspect traffic of interest to reduce false positives and optimize inline security tool performance.”
