Savvius’s packet-based appliance and software solutions are used by thousands of enterprise customers worldwide for network performance diagnostics. Combining the strengths of each company will yield solutions with an ability to visualize, simplify, optimize, and troubleshoot enterprise networks, from datacenter to edge including East/West traffic and key multi-vendor application and performance monitoring metrics.

Savvius Omnipeek software, Omnipliance packet-capture appliances, and WiFi solutions have become trusted industry standards for network management in datacenters and throughout distributed enterprises.
