The Gigamon GigaVUE-HC1 node with 12 1G/10G cages pricing starts around $23,000. The DC Power version starts around $24,000. The GigaVUE HC2 node base unit w/ chassis, Control Card, 1 Fan Tray, CLI, 2 power supplies, (AC power) starts from around $26,800.
The GigaVUE-HC1 runs the same GigaVUE-OS used by the GigaVUE H Series and
TA Series family of products, providing a consistent set of features and user experience.
In addition, the 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, including the GigaVUE-HC1.
The base chassis has twelve (12) SFP/SFP+ cages supporting 1Gb and 10Gb modules
plus four (4) fixed RJ-45 ports for 10/100/1000Mb. Expandability is provided by two
module bays. The copper TAP/bypass module has eight (8) RJ-45 ports to monitor
four (4) 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 enhances security analytics without sending
full packet streams across a WAN. When full packet data is required, traffic flows can be
tunneled back to centralized tools for deeper inspection. Efficiency is further improved by
dropping duplicate packets, removing unwanted headers, and slicing packets down to a
more manageable size.
