WildPackets, a network and application performance provider, used Interop to debut the latest version of its flagship wireless network analysis solution, the Omni Distributed Analysis Platform.
The new release -- version 7.5 -- is being touted by WildPackets as the only commercially available wireless analysis platform to operate on 802.11ac, the most current 802.11 standard. This distinction, WildPackets said, allows Omni Distributed Analysis Platform 7.5 to maximize high-speed WLAN uptime and quickly drill down to the cause of any WLAN performance issues.
Because of the higher networking speeds capable with the 802.11ac standard, WildPackets said traditional network analysis solutions aren't enough to fully capture 802.11ac data. To combat this, WildPackets said its latest platform can capture wireless 802.11ac data directly from supported access points, and that it has worked with vendors including Aerohive and Ruckus to ensure this functionality.
