PacketTrap releases new network management system – Perspective

David Davis David Davis Profile: David Davis

PacketTrap is a new “startup” network management company. I have been a fan of their free “pt360” tool that gives you a single console for a variety of network management & troubleshooting tools. Besides the free version, they also have commercial versions of the pt360 that offer more features like built in Cisco management tools.

Recently, PacketTrap launched a whole new product – a network management & monitoring product called “perspective”. Perspective is solely a commercial product but there is the option to “try/eval” it. The name comes from the concept that it shows you the network from the “perspective” of the device that you are monitoring/managing. Perspective competes with products like IPSwitch WhatsUp, Solarwinds Orion, and others. Perspective is meant to be a true enterprise network management & monitoring application. It also integrates with the pt360 troubleshooting tool.

While I am not here to sell you anything, I just like to share the word about new & innovative products (especially the free ones). So, if you are looking for a tool for network management & monitoring, I encourage you to evaluate PacketTrap’s Perspective. Additionally, for network troubleshooting, you should look at pt360 (especially as you can use the free version to start with).
