The WildPackets family of OmniAdapters use state-of-the-art hardware and
FPGA technology to provide the high-performance analysis of Gigabit networks.
OmniAdapter is a four-port, PCI-X network analyzer card available in the following configurations:
Four SFP cages
Four RJ45 ports
Two SFP cages and two RJ45 ports
OmniAdapters are supported on both Windows and Linux operating systems.
Error Packet Capture
OmniAdapter has the ability to capture error packets on the network. These errors include: Runt, Oversize, Frame Alignment, and CRC Errors. To capture errors on Gigabit segments, you must use the WildPackets OmniAdapter.
Fine-Tuned for Gigabit Analysis
OmniEngine Enterprise has been fine-tuned to facilitate processing of Gigabit traffic loads while performing real-time troubleshooting. Adjustable settings in the Performance View allow network engineers to select optimized performance for the type of analysis required, whether performing real-time analysis, monitoring statistics, or saving all packets to disk for post-capture forensic analysis. OmniEngine Enterprise can capture concurrently from multiple OmniAdapters, enabling engineers to analyze Gigabit traffic on different segments simultaneously. For instance, engineers can use OmniEngine Enterprise to analyze traffic on both sides of a router to track packet flows.
Only OmniEngine Enterprise combines:
Real-time troubleshooting with WildPackets´ award-winning Network Expert technology
Support for Ethernet and Gigabit copper and fiber
High performance full-duplex analysis via in-line or port mirror
A fully-integrated Gigabit Analyzer Card
Other Supported Gigabit Adapters
Intel® PRO/1000 Cards:
WildPackets also offers Intel Pro/1000 adapter cards to capture Gigabit traffic. The Intel Pro/1000 cards are an excellent, cost-effective solution for those who want to connect to SPAN or mirror ports.
WildPackets´ OmniAdapter 10G is a high performance, full-duplex 10 Gigabit Network Analyzer Card
with 2x10 Gbit/s optical interfaces that has been optimized for monitoring and troubleshooting
traffic on 10 Gigabit Ethernet network. The two-port, OmniAdapter 10G provides hardware accelerated
packet tracing and dynamically configurable filtering together with high precision timestamping.
With the OmniAdapter 10G, WildPackets extends its industry leading distributed analysis
technology to the world of high-speed, 10 Gigabit networks.
OmniAdapters 10G are available with 1x850nm MFF XFP or; 1x1310nm SMF XFP optical transceivers
with LC connectors and supports both Windows and Linux operating systems.

Intel® PRO/10GbE Cards:
WildPackets also offers Intel Pro/10GbE adapter cards to capture 10 Gigabit traffic. The Intel Pro/10GbE cards are an excellent, cost-effective solution for those who want to connect to SPAN or mirror ports.
For wireless packet capture, OmniPeek requires the installation of a special driver corresponding
to the supported wireless network adapter. WildPackets has tested Marvell-based, Atheros-based,
Ralink-based, and Intel Centrino 3945-based cards for wireless capture.
Other wireless cards may work
with this version to the same degree that they worked in prior versions; however, these cards are not
recommended. For more information and to download wireless drivers, please visit the
driver downloads page.
