The recommended replacement for Cisco SSD is the Cisco Subscriber Edge Services Manager (SESM). Cisco SESM is a fundamental extension of the Web portal capabilities of the Cisco SSD. With the introduction of subscriber self-care features and policy-based service and subscriber management, Cisco SESM brand reflects the full suite of applications and components.

Cisco SESM is an extensible set of applications for providing on-demand services and service management. Service providers use Cisco SESM to offer and advertise value-added services and to associate these services with their brand identities. Together with the Cisco Service Selection Gateway (SSG), the Cisco SESM offers a customized, personal subscriber experience that lets service providers move up the value chain and create a services-based business model.
