SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco Systems today announced additions to the CiscoWorks family with the introduction of the CiscoWorks Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE), as well as security and operational enhancements to the CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) and Routed WAN Management Solution (RWAN). These solutions offer customers cost-effective management and monitoring tools, which can enhance network resilience as well as the IT staff's productivity. The WLSE is a specialized appliance for managing Cisco Aironet wireless LAN infrastructures and provides enterprises with a rich set of integrated features to cost-effectively manage these productivity-enhancing infrastructures. It centrally identifies and configures Access Points (AP) in customer-defined groups and reports on throughput and client associations, enabling optimized wireless network performance and overall operational efficiency. WLSE's centralized management capabilities are further enhanced with an integrated template-based configuration tool for added configuration ease and improved productivity. Enhancements to the CiscoWorks Family: The CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) and CiscoWorks Routed WAN Management Solution (RWAN), provide customers with a robust set of tools for management and administration of LAN and routed WAN infrastructures respectively. Both solutions now offer expanded security and operational support for more comprehensive, scalable infrastructure management including new security enhancements, operating system support, expanded Cisco IOS support, and extended device support for over 30 new Cisco devices. Key enhancements to these solutions also include:

  • New Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Shell (SSH) protocol support in CiscoView helps enable more secure transactions between CiscoWorks applications, clients and managed devices helping to protect important enterprise device data over the managed network

  • RME's Software Image Manager (SWIM) has been enhanced to allow dynamic updating of PIX device images simplifying management of large scale PIX deployments reducing the time and effort required to maintain and update PIX software.

  • Support for Windows 2000 Server and Professional and Solaris 2.7 and 2.8. Cisco Systems Inc.
