July 11, 2011  

Unrivaled ease of network management provided by new best-in-class graphical interface and powerful command line interface.

SILICON VALLEY, Calif., July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon, the leading global provider of data access networking solutions, has announced a major update to its GigaVUE G Series operating system software - version 8.0. This latest release expands support for a number of key features including extended hashing options, allowing up to seven user selectable algorithms to provide optimal load balancing in trunking configurations. Additional expanded features include SNMPv3 security protocols and cross-box mapping capabilities.  

Along with the additional features in the operating system, the Gigamon Citrus™ graphical user interface (GUI) has also been updated. The latest release delivers unmatched simplicity and power to manage visibility across a complete network, and does so by combining a new best-in-class graphical interface design with a powerful command line interface. Delivering valuable flexibility to our customers, both interfaces are fully integrated allowing for control to be switched between GUI and CLI while performing configuration and management tasks.

This operating system release is applicable to all models in the GigaVUE G Series, (the GigaVUE-212, GigaVUE-420, and GigaVUE-2404). The G Series are recognized as the industry standard for intelligent data access switching.  

"When starting on the v8.0 software update, one of the key steps was to look at what our customers wanted in terms of how to control, manage and configure network visibility," said Mike Valladao, Senior Product Manager at Gigamon. "By adding a range of viewing options, and expanded features, customers will find the perfect balance between simplicity and power."
