We came back from Cisco Live Milan last week energized by the great conversations and excitement about the future of networking and communications. For those of you who couldn’t make it this year, we thought we’d provide a quick wrap-up of the major themes discussed during the show as well as the sessions we found most interesting and helpful.
With presentations from a range of companies, including EMC and NetApp, the show primarily focused on current networking trends and the challenges enterprises face with virtualization, automation and switching to 802.11ac.
At the WildPackets booth, we demonstrated the capabilities of our OmniPeek network analyzer, the first and only solution on the market offering a fully functioning, 3-stream, 802.11ac wireless LAN analysis system. This means that as enterprise-class 802.11ac access points become more readily available, WildPackets’ OmniPeek is capable of capturing the network traffic at these higher speeds.
If you weren’t there for our live demo, you can watch this short video demonstrating the use of a Cisco AP3700 to capture 3-stream 802.11ac traffic
