Be sure to come by booth 1967 and get a demo of our newest OmniPeek, version 6.8! We'll also be having a raffle for a $250 gift card, so stop by our booth, watch a presentation, and fill out our survey on 10G to enter.

Thank you to all who participated in March's quiz on Application Visibility and congratulations to our winner, Mark S. This month we are having another quiz on visibility, only this time you get to test your chops around Total Network Visibility with Root-Cause Analysis. If you get a perfect score for this quiz, you'll have a chance to win one of two $125 gift cards (US entrants only). May the odds be ever in your favor.

FOCUS ON: Total Network Visibility to Root-Cause Analysis

In the last few years, the network has seen drastic changes to its structure with distributed applications, faster network speeds, and a higher throughput of data. This adds tremendous complexity to your network and limits your ability to see both high-level as well as details for root-cause analysis. Though many systems on the market today are designed to meet one or the other of these challenges, only WildPackets provides a system designed for network monitoring for analysis, the ability to both monitor overall network statistics while providing unprecedented network details, allowing you to move directly from monitoring and reporting to true root-cause analysis with a single product.

Learn more about how the network environment has changed and ways in which you can better plan for a distributed and high-speed network with our Info Kit, which includes:

  • Essentials for Assuring Network and Application Performance White Paper:
    As a network professional, it's not enough to be focused on network failures. You need to be able to assure network and application performance. Read this white paper to evaluate performance monitoring and management initiatives and eliminate blind spots.
  • Beyond Monitoring – Root-Cause Analysis White Paper:
    Some monitoring solutions, such as those based on flow-based data like NetFlow, lack the depth to perform true root-cause analysis. Read how Network Monitoring for Analysis lets you know when there's a problem and why there's a problem, and gets you to the root of the problem quickly.
  • Your Applications Are Distributed, How About Your Network Analysis Solution? Webcast:
    Corporate computing has crossed the threshold to highly distributed – whether your organization has 50 or 50,000 employees. It is imperative that you distribute your network analysis capabilities. Learn technologies and approaches to best deal with today's highly distributed network applications.
  • Ending the Blame Game: Troubleshooting Distributed Application Performance White Paper:
    Today's geographically distributed companies and applications require a 24/7 proactive approach to network performance management. Discover factors to consider when troubleshooting the performance of distributed applications. Learn must-have criteria for distributed network analysis solutions.
  • Application vs. Network – The Fight is On! – Application and Network Performance Monitoring Webcast:
    When applications cause network slowdowns, can you state confidently "it's not the network?" Watch real-world examples – the first an instance where the network is to blame and the second a case where the application is at fault – and learn how to prove where issues in your environment lie.

June 6th, 2012 is World IPv6 Day, and this time it’s for real. Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services on this day. IPv6 provides users with better security and is poised to improve VoIP and unified communications services through its advanced quality of service features. While IPv6 provides tremendous benefits, deploying it properly is a challenge.

In response, we've upgraded OmniPeek to help address issues that might occur while switching over to IPv6. Of course, in-depth IPv6 analysis is just one of the many advancements in OmniPeek 6.8.

Check out the full list of our updates.
