GigaVUE 212 Data Access Switch for Enterprise Networks and Data Centers

The GigaVUE-212™ is an entry level Data Access Switch which aggregates, multicasts, filters and divides traffic flows across multiple passive monitoring tools at a fraction of the cost of similar devices. The switch supports eight 1GE ports and two 10GE ports with an optional expansion module for support of another four 1GE ports.

The GigaVUE 212 is ideal for data centers and enterprises who either require a low-cost option in order to enhance their network monitoring for the first time, or who have areas of their networks where they need lower port counts to support comprehensive monitoring.

With support for plug-in of multiple out-of-band tools, the GigaVUE 212 enables enterprises and data centers to connect any tool to any data stream unobtrusively for an affordable price.
