Cisco 10000 Manager 1.0
Carrier grade Element Management
for IP Edge Deployments

The Cisco® 10000 Manager is a graphical user interface (GUI)-based, carrier-class element management system (EMS) for managing Cisco 10000 Series routers (Figure 1). It provides several GUI features designed to increase network operations productivity. With the ability to discover inventory in real time, this EMS helps to ensure quicker deployment of Cisco networking equipment and provides comprehensive element service assurance to more quickly solve network problems.

Cisco 10000 Manager is one of the Cisco element managers that provide device-specific fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security (FCAPS) management capability for Cisco service provider products. Cisco element managers include CiscoWorks Resource Manager Essentials for network-element operations and administration tasks. Cisco element managers are based on a highly scalable, tested, and field-validated common infrastructure. This flexible, modular model allows you to install the mix of element managers you need to support your business. It also enables cost-effective and rapid deployment of new element managers, which means you can more rapidly introduce and manage new services. Cisco element managers provide common interfaces and element management services to applications in the network- and service-management levels of the Cisco Internet OSS, as well as to your existing operations support system (OSS) components.

Cisco 10000 Manager runs on Sun Microsystems UltraSPARC servers with the Solaris 8 operating environment installed.

Network security

Gives the network operations center (NOC) manager precise control over access to EMS applications based on the operator's role

Access control can be customized based on any combination of individuals, groups, roles, and features, rather than a more restricted user-administrator structure

Reduces margin for error and prevents malicious access

Increases reliability of service

Multiple users

Supports multiuser, multisite NOC operations with up to 50 simultaneous users

Reduces costs and simplifies operations for several sites from one NOC

High availability

Online EMS database backup occurs without management interruption, even when backup is in progress

EMS self-monitoring helps ensure that all internal processes are up and running

Reduces management downtime to increase availability of service

OSS integration interfaces

Enables integration into the service provider's OSS, and facilitates management using a single application

Based on industry standards, including Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

Reduces cost of operation

Cisco CNS Configuration Engine integration

Integration with Cisco CNS Configuration Engine for simpler, GUI-based Cisco IOS Software configuration management
