Network Management Software

2cSNA
Company:
Inside Products
2cSNA is an application designed to help z/OS installations that would like to save the costs of legacy network management products such as NetView™ or NetMaster. The changes in SNA network architectures due to the removal of Front End Processors (FEPs or NCPs), Terminal Cluster Controllers (such as 3172/4) and the ubiquitous presence of an IP infrastructure have made quite a few functions of SNA network management obsolete. Yet users are still using SNA - there is no doubt about that. Meanwhile, cost control mandates a thorough examination of all areas in which a redesign might save significant amounts of money. So, we introduce - 2cSNAŠ.
