Features and Capabilities
With Cisco Prime Infrastructure, IT organizations are able to easily consolidate management tools and converge workflows. This reduces operational overhead and increases productivity. The solution provides a new operational model based on lifecycle processes that are aligned with the way network operators do their jobs.
Cisco Prime Infrastructure provides these features:
Single Pane of Glass
This view for integrated wired and wireless lifecycle management includes inventory, configuration and image management; automated device deployment; and fault and performance monitoring.
Converged Access Technology
It delivers wireless capabilities for radio frequency (RF) management, user access visibility, reporting and troubleshooting.
Consolidation of required management products helps IT organizations reduce the number of tools required to manage their networks, reduce operational overhead and increase productivity
Application and service assurance visibility expedites isolation and troubleshooting of performance issues, using technologies such as NetFlow, Network-Based Application Recognition 2.0 (NBAR2) and medianet.
Streamlining of Workflows
This facilitates easier and quicker deployment, provisioning and debugging of Cisco technologies and services.
Integration with Cisco Knowledge Base
Integration helps to ensure optimal service, support and product updates and to improve network design, management, and troubleshooting.
Ongoing support of New Cisco Devices and Software Releases
This ensures device support parity within each device family, and is provided through the Incremental Device Updates (IDUs).
Cisco Prime Infrastructure is built with scalability and extensibility in mind. It can manage global enterprise networks that have thousands of network devices and hundreds of thousands of access devices. It can also manage much smaller commercial network with the same level of control and resiliency. In addition, it provides powerful REST-based APIs that help IT and service organizations gather and distribute network information for operations, capacity planning, automation, and business intelligence.
Cisco Prime Infrastructure is an integral component of the Cisco Unified Access platform.
