WildPackets Upgrades Fault Analysis Platform

Network services fault analysis firm WildPackets today announced the release of Omni3 1.5, the latest iteration of its distributed network fault analysis platform.

The software, available April 15, reduces network downtime by enabling real-time monitoring, analysis, and rapid troubleshooting of enterprise networks.

"We're targeting the enterprise for distributed analysis," said Brant Cooper, the company's vice president of corporate strategy. "Other companies focus on monitoring and indicating where problems are; we focus on where you go once you know."

While previous iterations of the Omni3 platform have offered similar functionality, the newest edition adds full-duplex Gigabit capabilities, enabling customers to troubleshoot global 10/100/1000 Ethernet networks from a single console.

According to Cooper, the Omni3 1.5 platform boasts other enhancements, too. The product consists of a centralized management console named OmniPeek, as well as PeekDNX, a distributed analysis application that uses the Omni3 packet services engine to perform local processing on network segments.
