Managing the 1721 and 2600 equip.

I have a cisco based network with 3 kinds of equipment:

20 * 2960 switch

30 * 2821 router

50 * 1721 router

What kind of management software do I need to operate the network properly from my NOC?

Re: Managing the 1721 and 2600 equip.

There are a number of options available, it really depends on what your budget is for NMS software.

If you are looking at low cost you could go with MRTG for just snmp performance related stats:

If you would like to do more you could go with Cisco Works LMS which would provide:

Campus Manager -- topology map, user tracking, path analysis

Resource Manager -- inventory, config management, software image management

Device Fault Manager -- Notifications and polling

IPM -- round trip response, network performance and latency analysis

CiscoView -- graphical view of your devices

you could also consider other NMS applications such as NNM, but depends on what your budget and needs are
