Letter from the Editor
Spring is in full swing at WildPackets, and as always at this time of year, new trends and events are sprouting up everywhere.
Now that spring-cleaning is over, we can all start to look out for the rise of high-speed networks. With more and more companies making the jump to 10G and beyond, we thought it fitting that this issue of Peeks focus on all things high speed: monitoring, reporting and analyzing.
If you're at Interop Las Vegas this week, stop by our booth #2059 to say hi and sit through one of our presentations on 802.11ac, packet capture in virtual networks, or root-cause analysis for high speed networks.

When looking at a high-speed network from a network administrator's standpoint, it is important to readjust your monitoring habits and apply a new approach.
When you upgrade your network, keep in mind that 10G is an entirely new beast. You will need to update your network analysis and troubleshooting solution. Install your network recorders strategically and capture all traffic, all the time – that means 24x7 network monitoring.
