Gigamon™ Announces Distribution Program For GigaVUE-212(TM) Entry Level Data Access Switch
SILICON VALLEY, Calif. – – May 13, 2010 (PRNewswire) — Gigamon™, the leading global provider of Intelligent Data Access Networking™, today announced that Clearwater-based Specialty Distributor, Interlink Communication Systems, will be the master distribution partner in North America for the new GigaVUE-212 entry level Data Access Switch.
Recently announced at Interop Las Vegas, the industry-defining GigaVUE-212 aggregates, replicates, filters and load divides traffic flows across multiple passive monitoring tools in reduced port-count implementations. “Interlink is a natural fit for the launch of our new GigaVUE-212 and our G-TAP families as these products are ideally suited for, and will be the most efficiently addressed through, the Channel,” said Ted Ho, Chief Executive Officer at Gigamon. “Interlink has been squarely focused on serving their considerable Enterprise and Mid-Market Reseller base for over 20 years; the new GigaVUE-212 will add a new dimension to their product portfolio that will really invigorate net new opportunities for the Interlink VARs and their customers.” “Interlink is excited about Gigamon technology, but in particular, the launch of the GigaVUE-212 through the Channel represents a creative and cost-effective way to resolve critical issues that Network Engineers face today – our VARs are going to understand the value proposition and the opportunity at once,” said Al Higgins, President of Interlink Communication Systems.
With thousands of GigaVUE products shipped to date, the GigVUE-212 joins an impressive family of intelligent data access solutions for the Data Access Network. The GigaVUE-212 is a game-changer at a much lower entry price level; the switch supports eight 1GE ports and two 10GE ports with an optional expansion module for support of another four 1GE ports. The GigaVUE-212 is ideal for data centers and enterprises that either require a low-cost option in order to enhance their network monitoring for the first time, or that have areas of their networks where they need lower port counts to support comprehensive monitoring. Interlink, in concert with Gigamon’s Channel organization, will manage and support all GigaVUE-212 channel activities for partners, including sales, marketing, order fulfillment, stocking and delivery.
