The OmniPeek Network Analyzer displays packet data in order of their arrival on the network and with an advanced Real Time Protection (RTP), allows for super-fast detection of Out-of-Band (OOB) traffic and super-fast recovery of these packets in Loss Prevention. OOB traffic is traffic which are not destined for the destination MAC address, but is generated within the local area network (LAN). Commonly, out-of-bounds (OOB) traffic is traffic that arrives to the local network but is not routed via the MAC address. The OmniPeek Network Analyzer is a network monitor program that can be used for analyzing any of the following types of out-of-bounds packets: WildPackets, OOB, Exotic Traffic, default gateway, broadcast domain, broadcast unreachable, and routing table. The OmniPeek Network Analyzer has several additional features that include port monitoring, security monitoring, power status monitoring, and interface monitoring.
With the OmniPeek Network Analyzer, network engineers have a fast, intuitive user interface that will allow them to easily manage wildcards, debug, trace, and analyze them in the network. It is easy to install and use and has a single-interface capability that supports discovery of all types of wildcards such as CIFollow, ISubject, and ENet. It is also easy to understand and provides the user with an interactive console that provides detailed information on traffic passing through wildcard domains. There are a fast scanner and a packet analyzer with a comprehensive log viewing and tracking of all packets captured.
A variety of protocols are implemented in the network to ensure that traffic will be analyzed. For example, Cisco systems use many protocols including LSR, MPLS, SRM, LSR/PPTP, LPR, BGP, ISAKmp, OSP, PTP, and RTP. Each of these protocols can be implemented individually or in combination. When implemented together, they form what is known as an integrated packet protocol (IPP). The OmniPeek Network Analyzer software offers a fully featured IPP protocol stack that helps network engineers make more informed decisions about their network's performance.
