    Default network appliance/software suggestion

    Hi networkers,
    We've got remaining budget in 2013 and IT management asked me to suggest a networking appliance (or sotfware) deployment, of my choice.
    We have Cisco networking and voip gear already deployed: routers, switches, CUCM, CUC, CUPS...
    I thought about some Solarwinds software, something like IP Flow Analyzer, instead of our Plixer Scrutinizer.
    What do you suggest?

    Ciscoworks seems to be a popular choice if you definitely plan to stay Cisco in house.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    I'm a big fan of redundant systems. I like knowing that if something breaks there is something else to replace it with in short order while the broken item is returned for service. Just a thought.

    I have been looking at Solar winds and it does seem good for the price, but I think it depends how much time and what size of network you are wanting to manage.

    SPLUNK with the plugins also seems to be quite a good tool, but needs time spent getting it set up.
