We use WTI, too, just don't like it that it reboots to apply a change.

I've been using Western Telematic TSM-40 console servers and have been 
very happy with the price point and feature set.

Also, I aggregate console connections from different parts of my campus 
over my existing fiber plant using TC Communications TC1880 Async Fiber 
MUXs.  This combination has served me well.
