Cisco Kicks New CiscoWorks Out the Door

Cisco Systems Inc. yesterday announced the availability of CiscoWorks Windows 5.0, management software for small and midsize businesses.

CiscoWorks Windows 5.0 integrates Ipswitch's WhatsUp Gold technology, which provides network-wide discovery, mapping, monitoring and notification capabilities. This lets customers monitor all network hardware, printers, servers and workstations from a single application, Cisco says.

The software also provides easier but more sophisticated monitoring and configuration of Cisco devices, Cisco says. It also displays multiple views of a full range of Cisco devices, which is designed to alleviate operational complexity.

Other components in CiscoWorks Windows 5.0 include:

*Threshold Manager, a threshold-setting and monitoring application for Remote Monitoring-enabled Cisco devices.

*StackMaker, which combines multiple Cisco devices into a single stack and visually manages them in a single window.

*Show Commands, which displays router operational information without requiring Cisco IOS commands.

CiscoWorks Windows 5.0 will be available in mid-January for $1,995.
