Cisco Systems has made additions to its network management solutions with the availability of the CiscoWorks Voice-over-IP (VoIP) health monitor and enhancements to the CiscoWorks family targeted at converged networks. In addition, the company has also released the Cisco 1105 hosting solution engine for managing e-commerce data centre environments.
The CiscoWorks VoIP health monitor is a suite of integrated applications, including voice health monitor, device fault manager, and CiscoView, that proactively monitors converged networks supporting VoIP. The suite verifies VoIP system reliability by providing real-time status reports on the voice "health" in converged networks, and notifying users of potential problems in the Cisco routed and switched infrastructure.
The Cisco 1105 hosting solution engine has been specifically designed for enterprise and service provider customers with e-business data centre facilities. It aims to deliver comprehensive management of an e-business hosting infrastructure and Layer 4-7 hosted services.
"The introduction of the CiscoWorks VoIP Health Monitor and Cisco 1105 Hosting Solution Engine demonstrate Cisco's continued investment in the development of industry-leading management solutions for the rapidly evolving network infrastructure," said Jeff Krause, VP and general manager of the enterprise management business unit at Cisco. "Both complement Cisco's broad network management portfolio of products effectively managing e-business solutions enabled by Cisco AVVID," he adds.
