AirPcap Wireless Packet Capture and Injection Tools launched in Canada

Futura GTS partners with CACE Technologies to bring AirPcap USB-Based WLAN Capture Adapters to the Canadian marketplace. AirPcap models support 802.11a/b/g/n, Packet Capture, Packet Injection and Multi-Channel Aggregation.
Dec. 1, 2009 - PRLog -- Futura GTS today announced a partnership with CACE Technologies to improve availability of their wireless network packet capture adapters in the Canadian market.  AirPcap adapters are USB-based and capture full 802.11 data, management, and control frames. They range from an 802.11b/g capture-only adapter (AirPcap Classic) to an 802.11a/b/g/n capture and injection adapter with two external MC-Card connectors for optional antennas (AirPcap Nx).  AirPcap adapters are fully integrated with Wireshark, allowing you to leverage the world’s most widely-deployed network analyzer.

According to Larry Averitt from Intel’s Mobility Group, “…Whether diagnosing enterprise wireless issues or picking a channel for my Grandma’s wifi, this adapter is my favorite. It looks cool, it’s light as a feather and (since it’s integrated with WinPcap) it works seamlessly with Wireshark. CACE’ use of open source tools eases sharing of information between Intel and our customers, and their ongoing ability to deliver increasingly feature-rich and stable products is an outstanding example of quality software development and customer orientation.”

The AirPcap family is the first open, affordable and easy-to-deploy wireless packet capture solution for Windows.   This new partnership between Futura GTS and CACE Technologies allows Canada's wireless technicians more efficient access to these great tools.

AirPcap  Advantages
- Support for external antennas. This is a biggie: any serious capture adapter needs to have it.
- The  AirPcap solution is built with packet capture in mind from the firmware to the application. Instead of relying on some “vendor driver”, CACE built their own. This guarantees:
 - No interference with your regular networking
 - Support for any Windows OS from Windows 2000 to Windows 7
 - Superior capture performance / minimal packet loss, especially when doing multi-channel capture on 11n networks
- Wireshark integration: the AirPcap adapters are the only wireless adapters that can be used in conjunction with tools like Wireshark, tcpdump/windump and kismet.
- AirPcap adapters are easily run under VMWare on a Macintosh or Linux machine (or a VM session within Windows).
- Signal and noise reporting.
- Microsecond-precision Hardware time-stamping. This is very important for roaming analysis.
- The AirPcap adapters are capable of packet analysis in the 4.9 GHz band, and in many non-standard 5GHz bands
- Replay/injection feature. Useful for testing. There are a bunch of free tools that use this feature (e.g. Aircrack NG, Cain & Abel).
