Introducing the GigaVUE‑TA25 Chassis
The GigaVUE‑TA25 chassis consists of a 1RU, rack-mountable, 19" wide chassis with network, tool ports at the front and power connections, management, console ports at the rear. Refer to GigaVUE‑TA25 Ports and Description for a description of each of the ports.
Use the Mgmt port for remote configuration of the GigaVUE-TA25 Traffic Aggregator over a 10/100/1000 Ethernet network.
Refer to installation guide for information on establishing an SSH configuration session with the GigaVUE‑TA25 Traffic Aggregator.
Use the Console port for local configuration of the GigaVUE‑TA25 Traffic Aggregator over a serial connection. The serial settings are 8N1,115,200 bps.
Refer to installation guide for information on establishing a serial configuration session with the GigaVUE‑TA25 Traffic Aggregator in a terminal window.
The USB port provides additional mechanism to upgrade software image on the GigaVUE‑TA25.
The GigaVUE‑TA25 provides 48 25Gb/10Gb/1Gb ports.
For details about the supported transceivers and cable type, refer to the “GigaVUE Interoperability Matrix”.
The 24-port GigaVUE‑TA25 is called GigaVUE‑TA25A. Refer to installation guide for license information to expand the 24-port GigaVUE‑TA25A to 48 ports, and to enable eight (8) 100 Gb/40 Gb ports.
GigaVUE‑TA25 also includes 8 x 100Gb/40Gb ports (c1..c8).
In addition, you can also configure port modes that let either two (c1 and c5) of the 100Gb/40Gb ports operate as four logical 25Gb/10Gb ports .
Once a 100Gb/40Gb port has been configured to operate as four 25Gb/10Gb ports, cable it to an optical patch panel or breakout panel, which takes a QSFP28/QSFP+ input from the GigaVUE‑TA25 and splits it to four independent 25Gb/10Gb output ports. The c1 and c5 ports accept QSFP28/QSFP+ connections using 100G/40G SR and PLR4 transceivers.
This button on the front panel next to Gigamon logo allows you to reset GigaVUE‑TA25 without having to unplug both PSU’s. Push and hold the button for 5 seconds to reset.
