Cisco is one of the most well known networking equipment manufacturer in the world. Their routers are used practically all over the Internet. This is a kind of equipment that needs to be carefully configured remotely.

If there is a misconfiguration problem or for some reason a router is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced, it is always wise to have taken backups of the router configuration to minimize the down time of the affected networks.

This class provides a Cisco router configuration backup solution using the SNMP protocol.

This type of application is not a common use of PHP. However, it just demonstrates the versatility of PHP and how it can play a crucial role in mission critical environments.
