Re: Anything new in policy-based network management at Cisco?
I followed this development the same way you did. To make a start with the real "policy based networking" I even purchased the CSPM (Cisco Policy Manager) last year. One year later my experience tells me the products aren't ready for the complex networks we own. I haven't been able to create a complete topology, not even speaking about the policies.
At this moment I am wondering if Cisco will even continue with the CSPM. A third party product called "Solsoft" seems to become THE product.
