Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Completes Safe Harbor Testing
Safe Harbor certification marks the successful completion of extensive integrity testing that validates each operating system release. In August 2008, Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(33)SXH was Cisco Safe Harbor certified. Cisco recommends you plan to upgrade your Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches, if suitable, to Release 12.2(33)SXH to take advantage of an important new embedded service providing higher network availability and operational efficiency.
This new service, Cisco Smart Call Home, is an award-winning capability* that features proactive network diagnostics and real-time alerts to identify problems before they affect your business. There is no additional cost or obligation for this capability when you have Cisco SMARTnet Service. You can easily configure your system to activate the proactive diagnostics, which will monitor select Cisco devices 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The benefits include:
You will spend less time and effort monitoring and maintaining your network and experience a speedier resolution to network issues.
Smart Call Home is available as part of your Cisco SMARTnet Service on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series when running Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(33)SXH. The Smart Call Home capability will be available for many other Cisco devices over the next 12 months.
"Cisco Smart Call Home allowed me to fix a network problem in about an hour that would have typically taken one of my staff two days to troubleshoot."
- Mike DeDecker, CCIE, Warner Pacific Insurance Services
