Visibility beyond the traditional data center

The compact GigaVUE-HC1 appliance empowers IT to see, manage, secure, and understand data in motion in locations beyond the traditional data center. The base chassis has twelve SFP/SFP+ cages supporting 1Gb and 10Gb modules plus four fixed RJ-45 ports for 10/100/1000Mb. Expandability is provided by two module bays. The copper TAP/bypass module has eight RJ-45 ports to monitor four 10/100/1000Mb links. The modules have fail-to-wire protection and support both out-of-band tapping and inline bypass protection.

Optional GigaSMART® features provide traffic intelligence and visibility to remote sites. Generating metadata and NetFlow/IPFIX efficiently enhances security analytics. Efficiency is further improved by de-duplication, removing unwanted headers, and slicing packets down to a more manageable size. GigaVUE-HC1 supports clustering with other visibility nodes to increase scale and reach. GigaVUE-FM provides a single pane-of-glass view through which users can manage and orchestrate the entire Visibility Platform.
