Letter from the Editor
July was an eventful month at WildPackets! In July, we released the Omni Distributed Analysis Platform version 8.0 (the most recent version of our product), which provides better performance and solves latency issues for our customers. Additionally, our Director of Product Management Jay Botelho was featured in a guest post at VentureBeat discussing why the new planned Wi-Fi standard 802.11ax needed to take a back seat while the industry grapples with the necessary upgrades required to support 802.11ac

And, with the growth of 802.11 and Wi-Fi enabled smart phones, the use of voice over Wi-Fi (VoFi) promises to increase the volume of VoIP traffic even more. Read more here.
Please visit our blog for our perspective on this as well as other security issues that have the potential to impact to an entire organization.
