Cisco CMS Software provides an easy-to-use, Web-based management interface through a standard Web browser. Cisco AVVID (Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data) wizards need just a few user inputs to automatically configure the switch to optimally handle different types of traffic: voice, video, multicast, and high-priority data. A security wizard is provided to restrict unauthorized access to applications, servers, and networks. Cisco CMS Software allows management of up to 16 interconnected Cisco Catalyst 3750, 3550, 2950, 2950 LRE, 3500 XL, 2900 XL, 2900 LRE XL, and 1900 switches through a single IP address, without the limitation of being physically located in the same wiring closet. Full backward compatibility helps ensure any combination of the above switches can be managed with a Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series switch. The cluster software upgrade feature allows one-click software upgrade across an entire cluster of Cisco Catalyst 3750, 3550, 2950, 2950 LRE, 3500 XL, 2900 XL, 2900 LRE XL, and 1900 switches. Configuration cloning enables rapid deployment of networks. The master switch automatically upgrades each stack. Cisco CMS Software has been extended to include multilayer feature configurations such as routing protocols, ACLs, and QoS parameters. Cisco Clustering now supports member discovery and cluster creation across a single Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series switch routed hop, enabling the entire LAN to be managed through a single Web interface (and with a single IP address, if desired). Cisco CMS Software Guide Mode assists in the configuration of powerful advanced features by providing step-by-step instructions. Cisco CMS Software provides enhanced online help for context-sensitive assistance. The easy-to-use graphical interface provides both a topology map and front-panel view of the cluster and stacks. Multidevice and multiport configuration capabilities allow administrators to save time by configuring features across multiple switches and ports simultaneously. Web-based management for a Cisco Aironet Wireless Access Point is launched by clicking the relevant icon in the topology map.
