Cisco netManager is a comprehensive, easy-to-use management solution designed to simplify network administration and proactively monitor your IT infrastructure to reduce downtime and minimize business impact. The Cisco netManager family of products is designed for small and medium-sized data networks of up to 100 devices, 100 wireless access points, and 1000 phones distributed across 10 remote sites.
The Cisco netManager product family includes two product configurations, Cisco netManager IP infrastructure and Cisco netManager unified communications. Cisco netManager IP infrastructure provides a simple, easy-to-use monitoring and diagnostics platform for managing small and medium-sized multivendor deployments related to IP network infrastructure. Cisco netManager unified communications includes Cisco netManager IP infrastructure and extends its capabilities to provide visibility into and monitoring of Cisco unified communications system components.
The Cisco netManager 1.1 solution monitors all components of the network to provide real-time operational status of the elements in the network. Cisco netManager's built-in rules and thresholds as well as automatic device identification and data collection facilitate easy setup and immediate monitoring of the managed network. Cisco netManager also features an extensible monitoring framework through which coverage may be extended by adding different active monitors based on supported protocols like HTTP, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), and so on to help enable custom monitoring for both Cisco and third-party devices.
Increases monitoring efficiency through network autodiscovery
Console-based autodiscovery of the network reduces the time to discover the network while helping ensure that all devices are discovered and monitored in a short time. Cisco netManager also provides the capability to import devices into the system through bulk import or a single device at a time.
Increases visibility and resolves problems faster
Increases network manager productivity by facilitating faster trouble isolation through contextual diagnostic tools and easy one-click access to embedded device management systems. Facilitates viewing of current alert status and historical information and provides the ability to acknowledge events and connectivity information related to IP phones (Session Initiation Protocol [SIP] and Skinny Call Control Protocol [SCCP]) along with the ability to search phones.
Minimizes downtime and eases troubleshooting through rich notification and diagnostic tools
Facilitates easy integration into customer monitoring and troubleshooting workflows through notification mechanisms. A rich array of diagnostic tools such as ping, Telnet, trace route, and device manager web page launch provide for easier troubleshooting. Enhanced filtering capabilities help enable users to choose when, where, and for what issues to get the email notification.
