WildPackets 8.0 Enables Peak Network Performance and Precise Transactional Analysis

Omni Distributed Analysis Platform Now Supports Timestamp for Network Packet Brokers Including APCON, Gigamon and Ixia

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2014) - WildPackets, Inc., a leading provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, today announced the release of Omni Distributed Analysis Platform version 8.0. With high-precision timestamping and the ability to accept timestamps from network packet brokers including APCON, Gigamon, and Ixia, Omni Distributed Analysis Platform 8.0 provides detailed traffic analysis and more accurate network troubleshooting in latency-sensitive transactional environments.

Critical for enterprises and financial customers dealing with time-sensitive transactions, timestamp precision provides delay and latency measurement for more precise troubleshooting. Now mutual customers will have access to the most accurate latency measurement to maintain peak network performance across their environment.

"Latency is not only frustrating, it also has a direct impact on revenue," said Mandana Javaheri, Senior Product Manager, WildPackets. "Timestamp precision ensures next-to real-time network latency analysis for faster troubleshooting and improved uptime."

Accurate timestamping is essential not only for performance metrics analysis, but also for forensics analysis following a security breach. Today, with the introduction of ever increasing amounts of data traversing networks, precise timestamping has become crucial for maintaining accurate analytics.

"Financial and enterprise organizations are grappling with increasingly large amounts of latency-sensitive data," said Roark Pollock, Vice President of Network Visibility Solutions Marketing, Ixia.
