How to upgrade IPM?

Hi There

I am using IMP 2.5 with CWRW-1.3 in my teaching lab. It was quite old tool installed in 2004. IPM is good tool for network lab working with Cisco 3700 routers.  Now I am trying to find latest IPM version to upgrade the lab. I find that latest IPM is version 4.2 with Ciscoworks LAN management Solution 3.2. But this production is also  end-of-sale and end-of -support  see the page
          - End-of-Sale Date:    08-APR-2011 Details
          - End-of-Support Date:    30-APR-2014 Details

Now I have no idea how to upgrade IPM? Which tool from Cisco or a third party can be replacement of IPM?

Hi lidan@encs.I would suggest

Hi lidan@encs.

I would suggest that you try the Cisco all in one solution / Cisco Prime Infrastracture. It also has a wireless control system. Please email me directly at ( for further assistance.

Happy to Serve!

Hi AlyzaI am still working on

Hi Alyza

I am still working on this and little bit of stuck here somehow. In winter term my network lab is quite busy. When this term is over, I will be able to upgrade all 16 workstations first, then try to install Cisco Prime Infrastructure as Barry recommends, or I may have to try Cisco LMS 4 first, since all eight routers are running v12.3 now. I notice that there is big difference between v12.3 and v12.4 on Cisco IP SLAs, which is basis for IPM functions. Recently I tried to download v12.4 for 3725/3745, Cisco can not allow me to do so, it keeps saying "Service Contract Required" :-).  It is little weird for me to use Cisco router but I can not upgrade these device. 

I think IPM functionality is only small part of Cisco Prime. If I can not get a free license, I will have to buy all package of Cisco Prime, then just only use IPM?

I am not sure if I can find enough fund to upgrade all of routers (3725/3745) to 3925/3945(?).
