WildPackets, a provider of network and application performance analysis solutions, released WatchPoint 2.0, a solution that consolidates SNMP, flow-based and packet-based network monitoring and reporting into a single system.

The solution satisfies management’s need for high-level reporting, while also meeting network engineers’ need to both analyze historical network data and perform real-time root cause network analysis.

Centralized network monitoring is widely accepted as a requirement for enterprises of all sizes, but high-level network monitoring based on SNMP or NetFlow is typically insufficient for rapidly pinpointing and fixing the root cause of network bottlenecks. WatchPoint 2.0 solves this issue with a single system that aggregates data from sources across the entire global network, providing a single, web-based console to generate high-resolution reports down to one-minute granularity. WatchPoint 2.0 instantly reports network anomalies, and provides direct access to deep packet inspection technology to offer the only solution that spans network monitoring and reporting, network troubleshooting, network planning, and regulatory compliance.

"WatchPoint 2.0 combines what can often be three different management systems," said Jim Frey, Managing Research Director, Enterprise Management Associates. "This new release goes well beyond the initial premise of the WatchPoint solution, which was centralized dashboards and reporting across multiple packet-based instrumentation points. By adding SNMP-based element monitoring as well as VoIP analysis at the enterprise-wide level, the solution now becomes a viable alternative for comprehensive network performance monitoring."

"WatchPoint 2.0 significantly enhances the WildPackets product portfolio," said Tony Barbagallo, Vice President of Marketing at WildPackets. "It is the most cost effective approach on the market, combining both monitoring and analysis into a single interface."

WatchPoint 2.0 provides the following benefits:

* Single solution reduces CAPEX, deployment, maintenance and training costs: Only solution with one-click integration and detailed packet-based network analysis.

* 100% data accuracy: Business decisions can be made on the very best data possible, with all traffic analyzed (no sampling).

* Accurate validation of the results of network changes and upgrades with 1-minute data granularity: No time averaging of older data.

* Periodic network usage/compliance reporting/SLAs analysis: Use to monitor internal commitments and vendor compliance.

* Up-to-the-minute access to detailed Expert and VoIP analysis for immediate investigation of potential problems: Forgoes the limitations of flow-based solutions.
