CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) provides a robust set of applications for maintaining, monitoring, and troubleshooting a broad range of devices in an end-to-end Cisco AVVID (Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data) network. Built upon popular Internet-based standards, CiscoWorks LMS enables network operators to more efficiently and effectively manage the network through a simplified browser-based interface that can be accessed anytime from anywhere within the network. Taking advantage of a Web-based client/server architecture, CiscoWorks LMS can be easily integrated with other popular network management systems or other third-party management solutions running in the network.
CiscoWorks LMS provides a solid foundation of basic and advanced management applications that complement CiscoWorks products. Other CiscoWorks products include the CiscoWorks Routed WAN Management (RWAN) Solution, which addresses the needs of the WAN with response time and access list management. The IP Telephony Environment Monitor (ITEM) ensures the readiness and manageability of converged networks that support voice over IP (VoIP) and IP telephony traffic and applications. The Cisco VPN/Security Management Solution (VMS) provides an integrated set of Web applications with features that assist in the deployment and monitoring of virtual private network (VPN) and security devices. Together, CiscoWorks products offer leading-edge solutions for improving the accuracy and efficiency of your operations staff, increasing overall availability of your network through proactive planning and maximizing network security.
