48V DC Terminal server recommendations

We used these quite a bit. Uplogix has some interesting automation, and the phone line/OOB is pretty slick. One cool thing about uplogix is it has a surgical rollback feature. You can set many different conditions and rules, and the router will dutifully execute a fall back procedure automatically. We had a switch plugged in, and I did a port range and added "shut" to all of the ports. Once they all went down, uplogix noticed and after a pre defined time it went back in and restored to the last known good configuration. If these bells and whistles don't blow your skirt up, check out the website.

I guess Cyclades is now Avocent, used these at Clearwire.  Can come with
dual 48VDC supplies.  Think of a 48 serial port Linux box.  Has PCM/CIA
slot for modem.  Multiple users can be logged in at the same time.
