Network analysis provider WildPackets has extended its OmniAnalysis Platform 4.0 for network monitoring and troubleshooting to include a new product family for SMBs: OmniAnalysis Workgroup.
OmniAnalysis Workgroup products aim to provide workgroups and SMBs with affordable solutions that can adequately troubleshoot and monitor networks.
The product family includes a portable analyser that network engineers can use in a laptop, as well as distributed analysis engines that can be installed in remote locations for 24/7 monitoring and analysis. The products also feature enhancements that the company recently announced, including application analysis, network forensics analysis and voice over IP (VoIP) expert analysis.
"Ongoing business automation and web-centric commerce have led SMBs to deploy increasingly complex, increasingly sophisticated networks," says Mahboud Zabetian, founder and CEO of WildPackets.
"With the introduction of the OmniAnalysis Workgroup product family, we're making the Expert analysis and distributed architecture of our enterprise solutions available to SMBs. We're sure the network engineers in these organisations will appreciate the advantages of remote, real-time analysis."
The OmniAnalysis product family includes WildPackets' top-of-the-line OmniPeek Enterprise analyser, which supports analysis on an unlimited number of nodes and from multiple NICs, including WildPackets Gigabit and Wan analyser cards. OmniPeek Enterprise can connect to an unlimited number of OmniEngines and includes support for media VoIP analysis.
