The CiscoWorks Product Line

The CiscoWorks product line is just that – not a single product, but rather a suite of many different network management products based on Internet standards. These products are bundled into common network management “solutions”, typically targeted at enterprise organizations. While the current version runs from a web-based platform, past versions have been provided as applications for both Windows NT and UNIX. Products in the line can be installed in a stand-alone fashion, or integrated with other third-party NMSs. Some of the more popular CiscoWorks bundles are described below. All of the CiscoWorks “bundles” also include CiscoView, which was described in the previous section. It’s worth noting that besides being integrated with CiscoWorks, CiscoView can also be integrated into other NMS platforms such as HP OpenView.
