The USR® Courier Console Port Server & Power Switch provides remote access for up to 4 console ports and control of up to 2 power ports over a single dial-up or cellular connection. Quickly reboot or configure routers, servers, and firewalls from remote locations when the network goes down or when analog or cellular Out-of-Band is the only option available. Keep costs to a minimum and reduce rack space and maintenance by consolidating to a single console server power hybrid and just one modem or gateway, but retain the same amount of control. Know the connection and data are secure when used with our worldwide approved Courier Business Modems and Cellular Gateways and have peace of mind with built-in security notifications. Designed specifically for easy use with Cisco routers, no special cables are needed and optional linefeed pacing† automatically prevents missed CLI commands when using a batch file to configure the router. This hybrid is ideal for IT managers responsible for maintenance and management of remote locations near or far.
