OmniPeek – now enhanced for increased visibility into virtual networks with Net Optics’ Phantom Virtual Tap

Interop Las Vegas was a blast. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth. It was good to catch up with both customers and partners and meet the people that we work so hard for.

During Interop we announced the second installment of our premier network recorder, TimeLine 2. Our partners at Net Optics also had an announcement of their own during the well attended event – the integration of their Phantom Virtual Tap utility with WildPackets’ award winning OmniPeek network analyzer to provide organizations total visibility into both their physical and virtual network traffic.

This announcement comes at the heels of last week’s announcements of OmniPeek enhancements including Compass, a new interactive dashboard that provides real-time visibility into key network statistics over long periods of time with on-the-fly data retrieval and complete OmniPeek analysis.

The integration with Net Optics’ Phantom Virtual Tap addresses the lack of visibility into virtual networks spurred on by the increased shift to virtual environments. These virtual environments must still meet compliance requirements and be accountable by IT managers as if they were traditional networks. OmniPeek’s integration with Net Optics Phantom Virtual Tap offers this accountability, and more.

With the integration, OmniPeek now gives network engineers even more visibility into their networks and the ability to execute expert analysis on every part of their network including Ethernet, Gigabit, 10 Gigabit, 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, virtual networks, VoIP, and Video – all from a central management console.

We are happy to collaborate with Net Optics and look forward to keeping OmniPeek at the bleeding edge of network analysis.
