As wireless technology continues to evolve rapidly, network engineers are in a race to keep up—both with system interoperability concerns, and throughput, reliability, and security issues. Wireless networks have also quickly become the foundation for other technologies, including VoIP and video, further increasing network complexity. Now more than ever, you need a network analysis solution that can manage the entire lifecycle of your network, including both wired and wireless segments, simultaneously.
WildPackets® provides a wide range of products that take advantage of the 802.11 WLAN standards, and enable you to visualize global network performance and analyze root cause failures as quickly as possible to keep wireless networks and wireless VoIP on mobile devices running smoothly. WildPackets has a complete offering to address wireless network design, deployment, monitoring and analysis, from the wireless network edge all the way to the data center.
The OmniPeek network analyzer has led the wireless analysis industry since its initial introduction in 2001. As the first 802.11 analyzer introduced to the market, OmniPeek continues to drive innovation, being the first WLAN network analyzer to support 802.11n, the first to support multi-channel aggregation, the first to support remote analysis from commercially available access points, and the first to support analysis of 802.11 3-stream (450Mbps) devices. This level of innovation makes OmniPeek the analyzer of choice for just about every manufacturer in the WLAN industry, as well as a key element in 802.11 interoperability testing by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Taking advantage of its industry leading wireless technology, OmniPeek can capture and analyze wireless traffic from the most advanced 802.11n equipment on the market today.
With native support for inexpensive, commercially-available USB adapters and USB Ethernet hubs, OmniPeek and OmniEngine can capture and aggregate wireless traffic on multiple channels from different locations around the enterprise, warehouse, or anywhere in the world, allowing for very affordable remote capture and analysis of all WLAN functions, including complex issues like roaming. This provides you with the maximum flexibility to configure and grow your wireless analysis network the way you want it. This capability, coupled with the automation of captures through scripts, makes OmniPeek an ideal platform for building extensible and scalable solutions to meet the special requirements of your wireless analysis situation today, and tomorrow.
