Walnut Creek, Calif. – January 12, 2012 – WildPackets, Inc., a leading provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, today announced that its OmniPeek Enterprise Wireless LAN Analyzer has been certified as interoperable under Aruba Networks' ArubaEdge certification program.
The ArubaEdge program fosters, certifies, and promotes interoperable mobility solutions from an ecosystem of technology partners such as WildPackets. Leveraging the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture, members of this ecosystem of top-tier suppliers, including WildPackets, share a forward-looking vision of secure mobility, a commitment to customer service and a focus on device interoperability.
WildPackets and Aruba worked together to develop an integrated solution through which Aruba wireless access points feed 802.11 packet captures directly into WildPackets OmniPeek software. The seamless integration allows network engineers to identify, quantify and analyze both common and out-of-the-ordinary wireless network issues. With this solution, packet captures can be started the instant a problem is reported to solve critical network problems as they occur.
"Continuing our relationship with Aruba and developing more integrated solutions through the ArubaEdge Partner Program will greatly benefit both our current and future customers," said Tony Barbagallo, vice president of marketing at WildPackets. "We look forward to working with Aruba to develop new solutions that use the advanced wireless capabilities of both companies."
OmniPeek network analyzer was the first wireless network analyzer to support capture and analysis of 802.11n 3-stream wireless. OmniPeek network analyzer is one of the only network monitoring and analysis systems that can capture and analyze this wireless traffic from the most advanced 802.11n equipment.
"We seek out ArubaEdge technology partners that can simplify the design, installation, management, and support of Aruba’s wireless infrastructure," said Michael Tennefoss, head of strategic partnerships at Aruba. "The extensible design of WildPackets' OmniPeek platform, coupled with its intuitive user interface, makes quick work of network diagnostics to the benefit of integrators and end users alike."
