Indeed it has been a journey, and not a destination. With the very recent acquisition of Sniffer Technologies by NetScout the words of the old song "Another One Bites the Dust" waft in my mind. And now, Cisco has acquired Cognio (which is the WildPackets and AirMagnet RF spectrum analyzer so the future of that product integration becomes muddied.

In 2000, when Optimized Engineering (my company) and Net3Group joined forces with AG Group we prognosticated the demise of packet-level protocol analysis as a stand-alone application. Oh, how clear that crystal ball was.

I'm sorry to hear that the Minnesota office has closed - that's truly the end of a proverbial era in the WildPackets saga. Out here in cyberspace, we're staying tuned :-)
