Cisco View for the LightStream 1010

Comprehensive ATM Switch Configuration Management

The CiscoView application for Cisco's LightStream® 1010 ATM switch is a graphical user interface (GUI)-based device management application that provides dynamic status, statistics, and configuration information for the LightStream 1010. This application is a subset of the CiscoView application that offers similar features for other switched internetworking products such as Catalyst LAN switches and Cisco routers.

The CiscoView application is also included within CiscoWorks, Cisco's enterprise network management application suite. It displays a physical view of any Cisco device and shows real-time LED and interface status. The CiscoView application provides comprehensive monitoring functions and simplifies basic troubleshooting tasks.

Using the CiscoView application for the LightStream 1010, users can more easily understand the complex management data and configuration parameters available for ATM switches. It organizes this information into graphical representations presented in a clear, consistent format.

Flexibility and Integration

The CiscoView application for the LightStream 1010 can be integrated with several of the leading network management platforms, providing management application integration. It can also be run on UNIX workstations as a fully functional, independent LightStream 1010 management application. In addition, it can be launched from the AtmDirector topology map by simply double-clicking on a LightStream 1010 icon.
