PRODUCT BULLETIN NO. 2869

Cisco Systems® announces the availability of the CiscoWorks Small Network Management Solution (SNMS) 1.5.1 and associated minor update release for CiscoWorks SNMS 1.0. This product is ideal for small networks, which might include two or three branch offices that need to efficiently and effectively manage the network through a secure, simplified browser-based interface. This suite of management applications provides basic network monitoring and element management for small- to midsized-businesses (SMB) customers with devices from multiple vendors in their network. CiscoWorks SNMS allows users to select up to 40 Cisco® devices for advanced administration using selected tools available in this enterprise-class LAN management product.

CiscoWorks SNMS introduces network administrators to the functions of CiscoWorks Resource Manager Essentials (RME) along with the multiple-vendor device monitoring and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management features of WhatsUp Gold (network-management software from Ipswitch). As growth of the customer's network continues, CiscoWorks SNMS provides a cost-effective solution that can be easily installed and used today while providing a transition path to the CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS).
Table 1 lists the features of the CiscoWorks SNMS 1.5.1 release.
