Fluke Networks Licenses Shomiti's Powerful Protocol Analysis Software

And Hardware for Their New High Performance Gigabit and VoIP Analysis

And Reporting Solutions

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ --

Shomiti Systems Inc., the technology leader in network QoS (Quality of Service), announced today that it has collaborated with Fluke Networks to help build Fluke Networks' new integrated hardware and software solution for the capture and analysis of packet and performance data in Gigabit networks.

Fluke Networks has licensed Shomiti Systems Inc.'s powerful protocol analysis hardware and software for their Gigabit Distributed Vision Suite (GDVS), a line of interoperable network performance and monitoring products that provide total network vision and analysis for 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet networks.

The Fluke Networks Gigabit Distributed Vision Suite includes a Gigabit hardware analyzer and inline filter tap. Interface with the hardware and software products and continuous network monitoring is through Fluke Networks' Network Inspector(TM) V4.1 Network Monitoring Software. Network Inspector automatically performs device discovery in IP, IPX and NetBIOS networks, and can present results in a Microsoft Visio(R) diagram for network infrastructure diagramming. Packet decodes are provided by Protocol Inspector V3.0, a powerful package licensed from Shomiti Systems. The integrated Fluke Networks Gigabit Distributed Vision Suite solution provides complete documentation, monitoring and line-rate packet capture capabilities that are essential to properly analyze the performance of today's high-speed network infrastructure, including measurement of key Quality of Service (QoS) parameters for VoIP installation.

The same protocol analysis technology from Shomiti Systems leveraged in the Gigabit Distributed Vision Suite was also used in conjunction with another recent product release from Fluke Networks. The new OptiView(TM) Integrated Network Analyzer, the first analyzer to integrate the functionality of RMON technology, protocol analysis, physical layer tests and other network management features in one solution, also includes Shomiti's seven-layer protocol analyzer interface, providing users with the ability to navigate large amounts of data and quickly display potential network problems.

"We are very happy that Fluke Networks recognized Shomiti's best-in-breed protocol analysis capabilities and asked us to help them build innovative Network SuperVision solutions(TM) for their enterprise customers," said Shomiti Systems Inc. President and CEO Bill Shaw." Our easy-to-use, full seven-layer protocol analysis software and hardware have helped make their distributed and dispatched network analysis tools like their new OptiView Integrated Network Analyzer and Gigabit Distributed Vision Suite even more powerful."
