Product Bulletin, No. 1021

CiscoWorks2000 Internetwork Performance Monitor 1.x End-of-Sale Bulletin

Cisco Systems announces the end of sale of CiscoWorks2000 Internetwork Performance Monitor 1.x (IPM) and the standalone versions of CiscoWorks2000 Internet Performance Monitor 2.0. IPM will no longer be available for the AIX or HP/UX versions of the UNIX operating systems. Customers currently using IPM on these operating systems will continue to be provided product support through the Cisco Systems TAC organization for the normal period after end of sale. An updated version (2.0) of IPM is available as part of the new CiscoWorks2000 Routed WAN Management Solution (RWAN 1.0). The Routed WAN product combines IPM 2.0 with other WAN-focused network management applications in an aggressively priced solution. IPM customers who want to obtain IPM 2.0 and the additional features of the RWAN bundle are encouraged to take advantage of the RWAN product promotional offer.
