Lower TCO by Activating Embedded Switch Tools that Automate Lifecycle Management Operations
Cisco® Catalyst® SmartOperations is a comprehensive toolkit of network services built into the foundation of Cisco Catalyst LAN switches. These embedded capabilities simplify and automate switch lifecycle management tasks and the QoS policy enforcement that real-time voice and video network traffic requires. There are about a dozen of these network service features, which together form the Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations Toolkit (“SmartOperations”), and they ship on Cisco Catalyst platforms running LAN Base or higher software. Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations tools lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by simplifying and automating network planning, deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
