How do you or your organization use this solution?

I used it for a couple of school projects last semester. We basically had to emulate how to capture packets in transit in a network. After capturing those packets, we analyzed them. We also had to break down email messages and dig out pictures inside email messages. It was deployed through a cloud. They had set up a subscription for a class VM.
I basically use Wireshark for network troubleshooting.
I use it for network investigation, I even have a patent for the simplification of Protocol Analysis. I have used Wireshark many times to troubleshoot network situations and problems. The patent solved the problem of troubleshooting where you needed to know the direction and course a packet takes in the network which helps with the ability to know where problems lie in the network. We developed the system to actually troubleshoot an entire network through the use of network probes, which acted as smaller protocol analyzers.
If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Wireshark, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
