Best-in-Class Packet Analyzer for Rapid-Fire Analysis

Omnipeek is widely considered by many network operations teams as the best packet analyzer for deep packet inspection. A traditional packet analyzer gives you data. Omnipeek packet analyzer gives you insights, so you can accelerate mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) and solve networked application issues fast. Not all packet analyzers were created equal. To solve VoIP, video, and other networked application issues quickly with intuitive analytics and expert insights, Omnipeek is a preferred industry choice.

Key Capabilities and Benefits

The following are key features and benefits that would be expected in a best-in-class packet analyzer:

Visual Analytics

Lightning fast and intuitive visual analytics, charts and graphs simplifies analysis of metadata, files and packet data, helping you isolate networked applications issues, like VoIP and video issues, fast.

Streamline Troubleshooting
Real-Time Network Protocol Analyzer

Packet Analyzer Protocol Decoding Capabilities

A packet analyzer is only as good as its decoding capabilities. Ominipeek decodes over 1,000 protocols, with real-time analysis for every type of network segment – 1/10/40/100 Gigabit, 802.11, and voice and video over IP, so you can gain unprecedented visibility into networks and applications.

Voice and Video Traffic Troubleshooting

A primary use of a packet analyzer is to troubleshoot voice and video issues, common issues encountered in the workplace. Omnipeek monitors voice and video traffic in real-time with summary statistics, call playback, and comprehensive media analyses.

Packet Analysis for WiFi Troubleshooting

A packet analyzer is essential for WiFi troubleshooting. The Omnipeek WiFi adaptor is designed for wireless packet capture. The 802.11ac adapter supports 802.11ac capture up to 2 transmit/receive streams (866Mbps wireless traffic) and supports 20MHz, 40MHz, and 80MHz channel operation.

Troubleshoot End-User Devices Remotely

Packet analysis cannot always be done at the office. Often protocol analysis requires troubleshooting of remote users’ devices. Omnipeek solves this issue with ORA, Omnipeek Remote Assistant.

Packet Analysis for Network Forensic Analysis

A top feature for packet analysis is forensic analysis. Because Omnipeek monitors packets real-time and historically, it is a great tool for NFA, network forensic analysis.

Packet Analyzer Expert System

Expert systems are used by doctors and network operations teams alike to rapidly identify common network problems. Omnipeek provides what many consider the leading expert system for packet analysis.

Expert Views for Faster Diagnostics
Proactively Identify Network Issues

Proactive Alerts

Identifying network issues quickly is critical for optimizing performance of networks. An essential feature of any good packet analyzer will include alerts. Omnipeek provides automatic alerts when configured network policies are violated.

Seamless Workflows

Clean, intuitive workflows are necessary for reducing MTTR (mean-time-to-resolution). Omnipeek provides industry-leading drill-down,look-across, and compare capabilities to accelerate network troubleshooting.
