GigaVUE TA Series

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 HC Series products, where additional traffic intelligence can be applied. GigaVUE TA Series helps optimize and secure data center infrastructure at the server edge.

The GigaVUE TA Series is especially useful for:

  • Aggregating multiple SPAN/TAP traffic feeds into higher-speed uplinks
  • Extending reach and density of the Visibility and Analytics Fabric across the data center
  • Providing visibility into leaf/spine architectures for security and performance monitoring
  • Top of rack deployment, consolidating traffic to GigaVUE HC Series node at end of row
  • Data center upgrades moving to Cisco BiDi infrastructures
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 Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric 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 also supports 25Gb and Time Stamping to facilitate accurate latency and performance analysis of network protocols and application transactions. 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. Network visibility into cloud and remote sites can be enabled through tunnel decapsulation (L2GRE and VXLAN) included in all TA Series except on TA1 and TA10. 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.

“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.”
