Tech Tip: Use the GigaVUE-HC2 Copper TAP Module for Inline Bypass
Did you know that the Copper TAP module on Gigamon GigaVUE-HC2 can now be used for inline bypass?
GigaVUE-OS™ 4.4 lets you configure the network ports of the GigaVUE-HC2 TAP module (TAP-HC0-G100C0) as inline network ports. This enables the same Copper TAP hardware module to act as a copper bypass module, providing protected inline networks for copper ports.
The TAP-HC0-G100C0 module features 12 pairs of relay-protected copper ports. When used together with other modules in a GigaVUE-HC2 fabric node, it is a convenient way to provide bypass protection to inline security appliances that need to be connected to 1Gb copper network links.
