I think the best way is to use NPM and SNMP, if that is not an options, I would use one of these two options.
Create a custom property in NPM, say Manufacture, then select all the Cisco nodes in manage nodes, click the box next to custom property for Manufacture, and set to Cisco.
Then update the dynamic query to search for this custom field value.
Create a Node Group in NCM, select all the Cisco nodes, click the box for Node Details, then Type in something like Cisco.
Then update the dynamic query to search for the node group.
Hope this helps.
