Gigamon Teams with Spirent to Demonstrate 100Gb Visibility Fabric at Supercomputing '12

MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Gigamon®, a leading provider of Traffic Visibility Fabric(TM) solutions, has teamed with Spirent Communications to showcase the scale and quality of the Gigamon Visibility Fabric for 100Gb networks with Spirent's testing solution at Supercomputing '12, which will be held Nov. 12 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, UT. Gigamon booth #109 Gigamon has continued to demonstrate its innovation in the market with the recent announcement of 100Gb internode connectivity of its Visibility Fabric and the launch of GigaSMART® technology in the GigaVUE® H Series of fabric nodes. As service providers face growing traffic flows from 4G/LTE compliant devices, and enterprises adopt cloud services to house critical workloads, Gigamon creates the technology suited to meet the growing demand of customers in these markets.


"Gigamon is the only provider capable of deploying traffic visibility solutions that are pervasive, dense, intelligent and can scale to 100Gb," said Paul Hooper, Gigamon's VP of marketing and product management. "We are now in the second stage of our four-stage evolution of the Visibility Fabric: the Engaged Fabric, which equips our customers with intelligent flow mapping and high-value traffic modification. We are thrilled to work with Spirent for our Supercomputing exhibit. Spirent's superior testing equipment is the ideal vehicle to present our Visibility Fabric running at 100Gb speed. " Spirent TestCenter, Spirent's 100G test solution, is a trusted choice for validating the performance, capacity and service quality of high-speed networks. Designed for data center, cloud computing, SDN and mobile broadband testing, the Spirent solution delivers a clock resolution of less than 2.5 nano seconds (ns), the industry's highest performance multi-protocol implementation and extreme scale on all test ports. Spirent TestCenter enables service providers and vendors to invest in and grow their 100Gb network solutions with confidence.

"As carriers evolve their networks to handle 100Gb speeds, thorough testing of equipment, components and infrastructure is the key to success," said Aswath Mohan, director of marketing at Spirent Communications. "We are the only test equipment provider to architect our solutions specifically to address the industry's move toward multi-protocol environments. With the highest port density, performance per port, and scale testing, our test solution helps Gigamon validate critical metrics such as flow aggregation and low-latency." About the Visibility Fabric At Gigamon we realized that delivering the visibility essential to manage, analyze and secure the complex system that is the IT infrastructure requires a new approach. With millions of traffic flows across thousands of endpoints, visibility needs to be pervasive, intelligent and dynamic. Using our patented, unique technology, we created an innovative new approach for delivering this visibility called the Traffic Visibility Fabric. This new approach is intelligent and versatile in its ability to enable visibility into the network. For more information visit http://www.gigamon.com/traffic-visibility-fabric.
