The Hardware Model, accessed through Inventory > Hardware Inventory, allows you to view details about the equipment in a network. There are two ways to view Hardware Model information: through the Hardware Inventory window, or through the Equipment Cost window. The Hardware Model feature can be very helpful to the network planner who is concerned about equipment cost and availability. This feature can also be used to keep track of equipment in an existing network, including information such as number of available ports, operating system versions, part numbers, serial numbers, and other inventory related operations. Link and card failure simulations can also be launched.
