While other RMM solutions focus on Servers and Desktops, CMD focuses on the backbone of customer’s businesses – their networks, data and voice traffic, and the equipment that manages it. This provides MSP’s with a sorely needed solution for Network Management, allowing them to provide Premium Services and command greater annuities.

Cisco’s Monitor Director supports both Cisco as well as non-Cisco IP-addressable devices such as Routers, Switches, Firewalls, Access Points, IP Phones and more, with the ability to generate Topological maps of customer environments, receive and escalate alert conditions, output meaningful reports and much, much more – all from a single console. Cisco’s Monitor Director is the perfect addition to augment your existing Managed Services tools and processes, and integrates with existing PSA solutions, further increasing your service efficiencies, utilization and net profits.

Cisco Monitor Director consists of:

·         A centralized browser-accessible console, deployed at your location, which provides secure visibility into all of your SMB customer networks

·         An agent deployed inside each customer network, which collects and reports critical network data over a secure communications channel.


·         Real-time, color-coded network topology and status map

·         "Smart-Alerts" with graphical supporting information that dramatically reduces time to diagnose and fix problems

·         Alert escalation and notifications through e-mail and paging that integrates into common trouble-ticketing applications

·         End-of-sale and end-of-life notifications for selected Cisco devices

·         Automated reports that include network alert summary, device-availability analysis, utilization reports, and network topology

There will be a Q&A session immediately following the presentation. CLICK HERE to register.

I hope to see you there!
