Using RESTful APIs that are exposed by the Fabric Manager, GigaVUE-FM provides policy control and fabric management for the entirety of Gigamon’s Visibility Fabric. Applications can talk with the Fabric Manager and use these APIs to achieve desired behavior in the Visibility Fabric.
JDSU’s support enables customers to automate traffic visibility, freeing themselves up to direct their attention toward other projects, says Ananda Rajagopal, vice president of product management at Gigamon.
“Automating traffic visibility allows the JDSU applications receiving traffic from the Gigamon Visibility Fabric to adapt the behavior of the Visibility Fabric based on changing conditions or patterns seen by the JDSU application,” Rajagopal writes in an email to SDxCentral.
Gigamon is citing three specific use cases that come from the JDSU integration:
- Session-based filtering: Empowering entire application sessions to be filtered, then sent to JDSU for analysis
- IPv4 and IPv6 traffic filtering: A way for users to separate these traffic types as more organizations look toward IPv6
- Reduced mean time to resolution: Allowing network operators to examine network issues in a more effective manner by isolating specific incidents within the network infrastructure.
Gigamon will be showing off its JDSU integration at Cisco Live in San Diego this week.
