Cisco CP is a GUI-based device management tool that allows you to configure Cisco IOS-based access routers, including Cisco integrated services routers, Cisco 7200 series routers, and the Cisco 7301 router. Cisco CP simplifies router, security, unified communications, wireless, WAN, and basic LAN configuration through GUI-based, easy-to-use wizards. Cisco CP is installed on a PC.
