WildPackets Launches TimeLine 2 Network Recorder

Combines high-speed capture with detailed real-time network and VoIP statistics

INTEROP (BOOTH #639), Las Vegas, NV (May 10, 2011) - WildPackets, Inc. (, a leading provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, today announced TimeLine 2, the second installment of their premier network recorder and the fastest continuous network traffic capture and analysis solution to offer detailed network and VoIP statistics in real time.

TimeLine allows network administrators to visualize data from highly utilized 1G and 10G networks over long periods of time, zoom in on network anomalies that require deeper forensic investigation and rapidly solve network issues without negative impact on the ongoing network analysis. TimeLine is also invaluable when organizations need to meet compliance requirements for auditing, network activity tracking and service level compliance.

"With the ability to now display critical VoIP and network statistics in real time, including top nodes and protocols, call utilization versus network utilization, and call quality over time, TimeLine makes it easy for network administrators to quickly pinpoint network issues," said Tony Barbagallo, Vice President of Marketing at WildPackets. "These capabilities are essential for businesses that are utilizing telepresence technologies and need to maintain network uptime."

"High speed 10G networks are helping IT organizations deal with growing traffic and performance expectations, but they pose new challenges to those who need to accurately monitor and troubleshoot them," said Jim Frey, Managing Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. "With the initial introduction of their TimeLine solution, WildPackets delivered the capability to capture 10G traffic at line speed for detailed analysis. This latest enhancement adds real-time visibility, extending the solution's value by putting operators in a position to accelerate remediation and even proactively correct performance issues."

Network information recorded with TimeLine can be seamlessly analyzed with the latest edition of WildPackets award-winning OmniPeek Network Analyzer. OmniPeek gives network administrators real-time visibility into the health of their networks.

Advancements in the new version of OmniPeek include:

  • Compass, a new interactive dashboard that provides real-time visibility into key network statistics over long periods of time with on-the-fly data retrieval and complete OmniPeek analysis
  • Wireless 3-stream network analysis support for the latest 802.11n equipment
