Data Sheet


CiscoWorks Voice Manager 2.2


CiscoWorks Voice Manager (CVM) 2.2 is a Web-based voice management and reporting solution. The application provides enhanced capabilities to configure and provision voice ports, and to create and modify dial plans on voice-enabled Cisco routers for voice-over-IP (VoIP), voice-over-Frame Relay (VoFR), and voice-over-ATM (VoATM) network deployments.

This release offers the following features:

  • Network partitioning—This feature offers greater flexibility in managing complex networking environments.
  • Distributed CiscoWorks Voice Manager—One network can be managed by multiple CiscoWorks Voice Manager servers. Users can see a unified view of their entire network from any CVM.
  • Improved information reporting with polling and display of digital-signal-processor (DSP), CPU, and memory utilization
  • Application access security—Access to tasks is controlled based on user roles.
  • Directory gatekeeper support with enhanced gateway configuration capabilities
  • Dial-peer configuration enhancements
  • Support for Cisco® 5350, 5400, and 5800 universal access servers
  • Configuration performance improvements—Multithreaded device configuration, upload, and download are provided using Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) (gatekeeper or Cisco IOS® version).

CiscoWorks Voice Manager Benefits

  • Expanded platform support—Provides configuration and voice provisioning for the growing family of multiservice Cisco Systems® platforms, facilitating a single management point for voice networks
  • Easy to use—Facilitates provisioning of voice services (for example, dial-plan deployment) with an improved GUI, and efficiently deploys dial plans for multiple voice protocols
  • Expanded reporting capability—Offers a wide selection of report types that can be tailored to a user's needs; optional upgrades provide more report templates, custom report writing, and capabilities to import call data from additional data sources
  • Complete solution—Provides a single solution framework for network managers through the integration into the CiscoWorks family
  • Cost-effective—Provides an inexpensive means to support rapid voice network deployment, considerably reducing the time spent in provisioning services; and customer selectable reports allow the end user to decide the type of information desired and the frequency and form of delivery, reducing operational support costs
  • Scalable architecture—Allows for rapid network expansion and for timely and efficient reconfiguration of the voice network to suit the enterprise needs
