Cisco has enhanced its Netsys management suite (NMS) to address a wider range of networks and a higher level of complexity.
The suite, claimed Cisco, now allows end-to-end network service policies across mixed switch and routed networks.
The software provides Web-based reports which indicate whether policies decided by network managers comply and if not when they were violated.
When service level violations happen, the Quicksolver function isolates any problems and gives hints on how to fix them. Other modules include the connectivity service manager, which includes physical device connectivity, security and reliability.
The performance service manager module monitors network performance levels, tunes existing network and helps network changes. The Lan service manager adds integrated Lan switching analysis and troubleshooting while the Wan service manager does the same for wide area networks.
Meanwhile, Cisco and IBM are expected to announce next week that they will cooperate on firewall technology, with Cisco releasing Pix Firewall version 4.0 and IBM supplying Windows-based configuration utility.
