Eye P.A. Essential:


Powerful Visual Packet Analysis

Eye P.A. is a rapid 802.11ac packet capture and analytics solution that makes WiFi traffic visible for quick analysis and diagnosis. At a glance, you can find and fix packet loss, monitor channel capacity, minimize congestion, and shed light on network configuration and security issues.

Rapid Packet Analysis with Eye P.A.

Powerful Data Visualization

Unlike a typical protocol analyzer, Eye P.A. uses multi-layer pie charts to visualize network traffic. This allows you to quickly view airtime utilization for all access points, client devices, and packet types transmitted on a selected channel. With just a few clicks, you can identify problematic devices without sifting through hundreds of lines of packet data.

Bonus for Wireshark Users: You can export filtered data directly to Wireshark!

Manage Packet Loss and Retransmission

Identify and Manage Packet Loss

Packet loss forces devices to retransmit data, which impacts WiFi throughput and clogs up bandwidth for every client on a wireless channel. Eye P.A. makes it easy to identify sources of packet loss, helps you to understand why devices are retransmitting, and provides guidance to get your network running at optimal data rates.

Visualize airtime utilization and saturation

Measure Network Capacity and Congestion

Since each wireless channel has limited capacity, efficient airtime utilization is crucial for high-performance WiFi. Eye P.A. measures data rates, allowing you to identify slow-transmitting devices that are clogging up your network. Once they have been identified, offending devices can be reconfigured or eliminated to free up precious network bandwidth.

Identify network configuration problems

Fix Network Misconfigurations

There is a lot to consider when deploying a wireless network, and sometimes settings are easy to overlook. Eye P.A. will help you to identify and fix common WiFi configuration issues, such as non-standard channels, legacy data rates and sub-optimal network security.

Capture packets with WiFi adapters

Perform Multi-Channel Packet Capture and Analysis With Ease

Eye P.A. makes it easy to capture 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac packets on multiple channels in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, simultaneously. Eye P.A. supports up to 6 WiFi adapters for simultaneous multi-channel packet capture. Multi-channel analysis is critical when troubleshooting client roaming issues on a WLAN, especially when attemtping to solve highly-mobile applications such as Voice over WFi (VoWiFi). You can collect packets in Eye P.A. without launching another program, using many standard WiFi adapters or Riverbed's AirPcap Nx.
