Effective network monitoring and security begins with a properly constructed Visibility Fabric at 1Gb, 10Gb, or 40Gb. Link aggregation is beneficial to ensure multiple lower utilized segments are combined into higher utilization Visibility Fabric ports. The GigaVUE-TA1 Traffic Aggregation node was designed for networks with a multitude of low-utilization 10Gb links and the need to aggregate traffic into the Visibility Fabric.

Multiple 10Gb links can be aggregated into a single 10Gb link if the utilization is low, or a 40Gb link for segments with higher utilization. The low profile 1RU design is intended to be deployed at the top of rack or end of row in data centers. The system ships standard with 24 x 10Gb SFP+ ports, and can optionally be upgraded by enabling 24 ports of 10Gb and 4 QSFP+ ports of 40Gb. The system has hot-swap dual fan-trays as standard and a single power supply. A second power supply can be added to provide redundant power capability. Both AC and DC power is available.

Features and Benefits:

  • High-density, 640Gb, 1RU low profile design
  • Front to back cooling, hot swap fan and option for redundant power supply
  • Aggregation of multiple 10Gb SPAN/TAP traffic feeds into 10Gb/40Gb uplinks
  • Support for SFP, SFP+ and QSFP+ media types
