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

Looking on tips for getting visibility into your organization’s remote offices? Attend our webinar on August 20th to learn how the Omni Distributed Analysis Platform can give you visibility across the whole network, from datacenters to your remote offices, with a single, distributed, cost-effective solution.

This month, we’ll be hosting Wireless Field Day 7 (WFD) at WildPackets’ headquarters. Go to on August 7th to follow along with the presentation and make sure you’re following us on Twitter @WildPackets and the official WFD hashtag #WFD7 – you just might get something from us in return (details the day of the event).

Blog: Use Comprehensive VoIP Monitoring & Analysis to Improve Performance

With over 10 years of deployment history, VoIP is the primary voice solution for just about every company in existence – large, medium, or small. But even with all that history, recent research from TRAC shows that VoIP is still the number one IT initiative impacting network performance. 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.
