Network World Awards WildPackets’ OmniPeek a Perfect 5

OmniPeek aces six-product WLAN bake-off

Walnut Creek, Calif. - February 4, 2009 – WildPackets Inc. (, a leading provider of network and application analysis solutions, today announced that a recent Network World review of WLAN tools awarded WildPackets’ OmniPeek a perfect score of 5.0.

In total, six products were reviewed. OmniPeek received the highest scores possible in each category – features, ease of use, documentation, and installation. The test objective was to install and use these products in a manner identical to how they would be applied in an end-user enterprise, and compare them functionally in a number of dimensions.

"OmniPeek's flexibility is first-rate… The product also enables a high degree of customization, including the ability to extend analysis with custom code (for specialized protocols). Complete filtering is also provided, allowing a user to focus only on particular packets or protocols," said Craig Mathias, principal at Farpoint Group, in the review. "Overall, this product was by far the easiest to use. We had to turn to the manual only to rate the documentation’s quality, which was also excellent."

"OmniPeek is the ideal solution for IT organizations responsible for network assurance across the entire organization. It’s unique flexibility and expert analysis set it apart from the rest of the field," said Tony Barbagallo, vice president of marketing at WildPackets. "It’s great to see the industry recognizing the value OmniPeek for its high-level network monitoring and its pinpoint problem resolution functionality."
