WildPackets Unveils Newest OmniPeek Network Analyzer

Updates include full IPv6 support, Timeline Forensic Analysis, and Packet De-Duplication

INTEROP, Las Vegas, Nevada – May 8, 2012 – WildPackets, Inc., a leading provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, today announced the newest version of the OmniPeek network analyzer, the popular packet analyzer solution used for network troubleshooting and protocol analysis that has been deployed in 80% of Fortune 1,000 companies.

The OmniPeek network analyzer performs deep packet inspection, network forensics, troubleshooting, and packet and protocol analysis of wired and wireless networks. The latest OmniPeek release (version 6.8) includes expert analysis of IPv6 for automated monitoring, resulting in rapid detection of misconfigurations and anomalies, and leading to quicker IPv6 rollouts. Additionally, OmniPeek now includes the Timeline dashboard, which provides the most complete set of real-time statistics, quick data rewinding, and rapid search and forensic analysis of collected data.

"OmniPeek 6.8 is built for the future as IPv6 succeeds the IPv4 protocol," said Tony Barbagallo, Vice President of Marketing at WildPackets. "Also important is the addition of the Timeline dashboard that displays key network and media statistics including top talkers and top protocols in real-time while offering network administrators intuitive drill down capabilities for forensic search."

Additionally, the latest version of the OmniPeek network analyzer makes aggregated packet captures from multiple locations on the network easier by performing packet de-duplication leading to smaller capture files and less clutter when performing troubleshooting.

"The better and faster you can recognize, characterize and troubleshoot an application, the more in-tune you are going to be with business priorities," said Jim Frey, Managing Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. "With this release, WildPackets has added several new features into the OmniPeek solution that will improve visibility into application performance, including current and historical contexts, for more effective operational assurance."

The latest version of the WildPackets OmniPeek network analyzer is available now. Product demos are available at WildPackets’ booth (#1967) at the Interop exhibition hall. For more information, visit here.
