Gigamon Announces the GigaVUE® 420 Data Access Switch

Gigamon continues rapid growth and substantial success by helping network managers solve complex remote monitoring problems by listening to their needs

Silicon Valley, CA - January 22, 2008 - Gigamon Systems, manufacturer of the GigaVUE® Data Access Switch supporting secure remote network monitoring, continues its development growth by responding to customer requests and announces the GigaVUE® 420. Gigamon has been shipping products for over two years and has become the leading supplier of secure remote data access technology. Gigamon’s out-of-band data access solution, supporting all data rate and media choices including 10-Gigabit, remains the market leader in providing secure and customized access for network management tools needed to monitor today’s complex and remote networks.

The Gigamon technology team, headed by CTO Patrick Leong, has come up with a significant upgrade to the GigaVUE® platform with the new GigaVUE® 420, which stands for “4” 10-Gigabit ports and “20” Gigabit ports with four hot-swappable slots.

Bruce Boardman of Syracuse University summarizes his recognition of Gigamon’s success this way, “Gigamon was founded by industry veterans and putting the customer first has always been their strength. They clearly have been listening to our suggestions. By improving the functionalities to provide four 10 Gig ports and four hot swappable slots, the GigaVUE® 420 is a much more flexible and expandable solution. In fact, with four GigaTAP modules, we can now tap eight full duplex Gigabit links in a 1U chassis. Our monitoring need at Syracuse University is a constant moving target and we are known to be very aggressive in pushing our vendors. Gigamon has listened and delivered.”

The GigaVUE® platform is still growing in technology and capability to support the networks of the future, and the release of the GigaVUE® 420 is proof that they listen to their over 400 customers. Gigamon will continue to provide the industry with new and innovative techniques needed to keep data access secure while allowing appropriate monitoring.
