Gigamon Goes 10G
MILPITAS, Calif. -- Gigamon, a leading provider of intelligent data access networking products, today announced its 10GigaTAP, an add-on for the company's industry standard GigaVUE(R) 420 Data Access Switch. The 10GigaTAP saves money, improves reliability, and reduces the network monitoring footprint by eliminating the need for an external data tap in 10GigE data networks. The 10GigaTAP, exhibited by Gigamon at the ISACA Network Security | Information Security Management Conference in Las Vegas and Interop NY on September 17th and 18th provides extra savings by eliminating the need for additional rack space, cable runs, and provides the TAP function effectively at no additional cost.
The Gigamon 10GigaTAP optimizes network monitoring resources and data integrity. When installed at the back of a GigaVUE 420, the 10GigaTAP splits and copies inbound and outbound optical data streams, then forwards the replicant data to network monitoring tools at 1 or 10 Gbps. Users access network traffic efficiently in one-to-many, many-to-many, or many-to-one configurations to allow sharing of the TAP by many tools.
"The 10GigaTAP saves time, money and complexity-three of the most critical factors for any network engineer," said Patrick Leong, Gigamon's chief technical officer. "Unless external taps are already in place, it's counter-productive to take up physical resources by purchasing and installing them separately from the data access switch. The 10GigaTAP simplifies the situation-a small, efficient add-on that delivers all the functionality of an external tap without additional cabling, rack space or cost."
