Cisco Prime Network Registrar is designed for these users:
- Internet service providers (ISPs) —Helps ISPs drive the cost of operating networks that provide leased line, dialup, and DSL (Point-to-Point over Ethernet and DHCP) access to customers.
- Multiple service operators (MSOs) —Helps MSOs provide subscribers with internet access using cable or wireless technologies. MSOs can benefit from services and tools providing reliable and manageable DHCP and DNS services that meet the Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS). Cisco Prime Network Registrar provides policy-based, robust, and scalable DNS and DHCP services that form the basis for a complete cable modem provisioning system.
- Enterprises —Helps meet the needs of single- and multisite enterprises (small-to-large businesses) to administer and control network functions. Cisco Prime Network Registrar automates the tasks of assigning IP addresses and configuring the Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) software for individual network devices. Forward-looking enterprise users can benefit from class-of-service and other features that help integrate with new or existing network management applications, such as user registration.
