NextGig Systems Signs on with Gigamon to Sell the Award Winning GigaVUE Data Access Switches

Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) August 5, 2009 -- NextGig Systems, Inc. announces the signing of a reseller agreement with Gigamon, the leading global provider of intelligent data access networking TM products. The agreement enables NextGig Systems to bring Gigamon's unparalleled GigaVUE-2404 and GigVUE-420 network visibility solutions to NextGig Systems enterprise IT customers.

"Gigamon is an ideal product partner for NextGig Systems enterprise customers," said Rob Esau, NextGig System's CEO. "As the leader of this technology, Gigamon has created the best of breed products in the space. By deploying the GigaVUE our customers can save money by utilizing existing 1G tools with the visibility to see into their 10G networks."

Gigamon's GigaVUE is a family of packet aware, data access solutions providing aggregation, replication and filtering of critical network traffic. GigaVUE provides a cost effective solution to help secure and monitor data centers. Network Engineers who face the problems of multiple network segments to monitor, multiple tools to deploy, too few SPAN ports and TAPs can now easily solve all of these issues.

GigaVUE-2404 Data Access Switch

The GigaVUE-2404 is a high density Data Access Switch for 10G centric data center networks. The modular design allows network managers to deploy the exact number of ports necessary to fit their requirements. The base chassis houses eight 10 GigE ports and four 1G and scales to a maximum of twenty-four 10G ports. It has the ability to aggregate, replicate and filter traffic flows across multiple passive monitoring tools. It is a powerful 10G tool aggregator capable of full line rate performance and transfer latency of only 6 μsec.

Multiple GigaVUE-2404 data access switches can be stacked together or with existing GigaVUE-MP or GigaVUE-420 chassis into a much bigger virtual GigaVUE fabric of over 200 ports, connected in a master-slave star configuration. Traffic from 10G networks can be delivered to either 10G or 1G legacy tools thus saving significant capital tool costs.

GigaVUE-420 Data Access Switch

The GigaVUE-420, which stands for "4" 10-Gigabit ports and "20" Gigabit ports with four hot-swappable slots is a Data Access Switch that has a compact 1U design. The GigaVUE-420 can connect to span ports or optical taps or be used to interconnect or stack multiple GigaVUE's to form a high density access fabric for extensible access for distribution to monitoring tools. Using the GigaVUE's innovative mapping function, it can divide traffic and distribute the packets to different GigE or 10GigE tools according to a variety of powerful and flexible map and filter rules.

With a GigaVUE you can create an intelligent Data Access Network (DAN) utilizing your existing security IDS, sniffers, protocol analyzers, VoIP analyzers, data recorders, application monitors, compliance monitors or any other Ethernet based passive monitoring tool. Get an immediate ROI by consolidating distributed tools and reducing management expense.
