WildPackets' OmniPeek and OmniEngine Now Rated "Avaya Compliant"

WildPackets' VoIP Analysis Applications Are Compatible With Key Avaya IP Telephony Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - VoiceCon -- WildPackets, Inc. (, a leading provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, today announced that OmniPeek Enterprise, the award-winning network analyzer, and OmniEngine Enterprise, which performs real-time network analysis on traffic from one or more network interfaces, are compliant with key Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) solutions from Avaya, a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services.

Both OmniPeek and OmniEngine are part of WildPackets' OmniPeek Distributed Analysis Suite, which gives network engineers real-time visibility into every part of the network simultaneously from a single interface, including Ethernet, Gigabit, 10 Gigabit, 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, VoIP, Video, and WAN links to remote offices. The applications now are compliance-tested by Avaya for compatibility with Avaya Aura™ Communication Manager. OmniPeek and OmniEngine provide analysis on the VoIP call signaling and RTP flows from Avaya IP Telephones for monitoring and troubleshooting quality of calls placed across the network.

"VoIP presents network engineers with a daunting set of challenges -- they must immediately become experts at telephony and voice technology, and are under pressure to resolve problems quickly. Avaya's compliance testing of WildPackets support for VoIP extensions eases their pain, since it gives enterprise customers industry-leading solutions to help troubleshoot VoIP issues," said Tony Barbagallo, vice president of marketing at WildPackets. "Avaya provides WildPackets' customers with open, standards-based platforms that help them incorporate new technology easily and cost-effectively, and uncover new possibilities for getting more out of their communications infrastructure."

WildPackets is a Gold member of the Avaya DevConnect program -- an initiative to develop, market and sell innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network.

As a member of the program, WildPackets is eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab. There, a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application to verify whether it is Avaya compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-class capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure -- speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.
