Small Form-factor Visibility Fabric Node

Built upon the success and functionality of the GigaVUE® H Series, the GigaVUE-HB1 provides low-cost entry-level visibility for remote locations or smaller deployments. At just 1RU, the small form-factor fixed-configuration fabric node can extend traffic visibility to more remote portions of the network running critical applications that require monitoring.

The GigaVUE-HB1 easily handles traffic with up to four (4) 10Gb ports and sixteen (16) 1Gb ports available for any combination of monitoring and tool ports. Although designed as an entry-level fabric node, the GigaVUE-HB1 includes GigaSMART® intelligence. Optional GigaSMART functions including de-duplication, Adaptive Packet Filtering, NetFlow Generation, packet slicing, masking, source port labeling, header stripping, and tunneling create a robust distributed monitoring solution anywhere space is at a premium. Combining the power of the Gigamon Unified Visibility FabricT and the flexibility of the GigaSMART packet processing engine, vital traffic and packet flows can be replicated onsite at remote locations, filtered, sliced, and tunneled back to a centralized monitoring location.

The GigaVUE-HB1 node provides visibility for distributed processing centers or regional operation hubs that collect and aggregate data and would be too costly to deploy individual analysis tools at each site. The GigaVUE-HB1 is suitable for situations where critical server processing is taking place in isolated wiring closets. Since the GigaVUE-HB1 fabric node operates on the same code base, it can be clustered together with other GigaVUE H Series nodes for a powerful Unified Visibility Fabric.
