Gigamon Extends visibility fabric with new high-density network TAPs.

M2 EQUITYBITES-July 15, 2015-Gigamon Extends visibility fabric with new high-density network TAPs


Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO) said it has announced a new family of high-density network TAPs, the G-TAP M Series, a next-generation network TAP that extends the reach of Gigamon's Visibility Fabric while raising the industry bar for TAP port density.

"In order to see more, secure more and monitor more network traffic, it becomes imperative to have comprehensive network traffic reach," said Ananda Rajagopal, Vice President of Product Line Management at Gigamon. "The new G-TAP M Series now leads the industry with the highest density and performance in a network TAP, and as a result enables the extension of the Gigamon Visibility Fabric to the furthest reaches of the network."

Requiring no power source to operate, the G-TAP M Series is a family of high-density passive fiber optical TAPs for 10Gb, 40Gb and 100Gb links. By splitting light optically, the G-TAP M Series enables network operators to passively monitor full duplex fiber optic links without impacting network traffic. Up to 36 full duplex links can be tapped in a 1RU form factor, which provides for more visibility in a smaller form factor and at a lower cost. With this industry-leading density, organizations will find an effective way to implement a "TAP all" strategy that provides deep, pervasive and non-intrusive visibility into their infrastructure.

The G-TAP M series is a modular platform that holds up to six TAP modules. Each TAP module supports up to six 1G/10G or six 40G/100G links. A combination of both multimode and single-mode TAPs in 50/50 and 70/30 split ratios is available. Not only does this provide flexibility in choosing link speeds, fiber types and ratio splits, but also provides space for future growth in network and security monitoring.

Gigamon provides an intelligent Visibility Fabric(TM) architecture for enterprises, data centers and service providers around the globe.
