Reading, Berkshire – Gigamon ( has today announced that it has signed a reseller agreement with Synetix Solutions ( The agreement will enable the two companies to work closely together to increase awareness of the business impact of SPAN port contention as networks upgrade from 1Gb to 10Gb, and how these issues can be overcome with Gigamon technology.

“Synetix is a forward looking business and we were encouraged by the enthusiasm that they had for the Gigamon product set after they had already identified demand for such a solution within their existing customer base,” said Nigel Norris, EMEA Channel Director at Gigamon. “Although it is early days in the relationship, the combined team is already pro-actively leading discussions with our mutual customers and receiving significant interest regarding the compelling capital cost reduction opportunity. Switching to a Gigamon solution can be up to a third cheaper than upgrading an existing tool.”

Gigamon provides purpose-built solutions and appliances that deliver pervasive and powerful visibility across networks of all sizes – from small enterprise to global service providers. As the creator and leader of the Intelligent Traffic Visibility Networking market, Gigamon's patented technology provides secure access and enhanced visibility for traditional and cloud-based networks. Its GigaVUE line of intelligent traffic visibility switches eliminate SPAN port contentions, extend the useful-life of legacy tools within 10GB environments and enhances the effectiveness and productivity of network monitoring and security tools – all running at line rate speeds.

Rick Gray, director at Synetix Solutions added “Network monitoring is all about ensuring the applications running on it are performing as effectively as possible, yet the core network switch typically only has two SPAN or Mirror ports which limit the potential for management and monitoring. Gigamon is disrupting the market with its GigaVUE product family and we’re delighted to be getting involved in this shift in thinking, and this new approach. Huge investments are being made in movements toward 10Gb networks and it’s now our job to work with all customers to ensure that they appreciate what a critical role the Gigamon solutions and technology can play in the overall infrastructure strategy.”

Gigamon operates a 100% channel focused business in EMEA and has existing relationships with Cohort Technologies and Computerlinks, amongst others. If you are interested in becoming a Gigamon partner, or would like more details on the GigaVUE product please contact Jim Berkman at
