Managing Cisco Catalyst Modular Switches Using CiscoWorks LMS
Source: Cisco Systems
The Cisco Catalyst 6500 and 4000 families of modular switches deliver best-in-class industry product lines with rich features and functionality that facilitate business-critical applications and deliver business continuity. Network management solutions can help control an ever-growing network infrastructure. Without effective network management, large portions of an IT budget can be spent on Operating Expenses (OpEx), causing IT initiatives to be delivered late or compromised. Effective and planned use of network management tools can help drive down the OpEx and reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). This white paper outlines how IT managers can use the CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) to help address the OpEx challenges and effectively manage the Cisco Catalyst modular switches.
