CoManage's Integrated Service Manager combines four key network management functions�discovery, provisioning, fault management and performance monitoring�into a single application. ISM enables service providers to see how network operation affects the connections and services of a particular customer, offer customized SLAs, and automatically monitor performance for specific agreements without special hardware.
