WALNUT CREEK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- WildPackets, Inc., a leading provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, today announced that it will demonstrate its 3-stream, 802.11ac wireless LAN analysis solution at the Cisco Live event in Milan, Italy, January 27-31, 2014.

WildPackets OmniPeek network analyzer is the first and only solution on the market offering a fully functioning, 3-stream, 802.11ac wireless LAN analysis system. The 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard has introduced significant improvements in both network speed and volume of connections for organizations of all sizes across the world. These enhancements require updated analysis solutions and new data collection techniques for maintaining secure and operational networks, which WildPackets is uniquely positioned to remedy.

Access points (APs) are the most effective and efficient method for capturing 802.11ac traffic for analysis. As enterprise-class 802.11ac APs become more readily available in the marketplace, WildPackets has the only network analysis solution capable of capturing 802.11ac traffic from these APs.

"AP vendors are finally coming out with 802.11ac-compatible solutions, but most WLAN analysis systems are not up to the task of capturing traffic at these high speeds," said Jay Botelho, director of product management at WildPackets. "WildPackets OmniPeek is the first and only solution capable of supporting data capture and analysis of 802.11ac traffic."

As an exhibitor at Cisco's annual technical training, networking, and education event, WildPackets will be demonstrating its fully functioning, 3-stream, 802.11ac wireless LAN analysis system with Cisco's new Aironet 3700 AP, at booth E47 during Cisco Live.
