Look into OpenGear, we've tested out a couple different products that we've implemented in remote offices to replace our 2800's.

I'd like your input on suggestions for an alternate serial port manager.
Long ago I used Cisco 2511/2611 and was fairly happy. A little later I used portmaster and was less so. Recently I've been using Opengear and they work fairly well but the price is fairly high. I use the CM7100 and IM7100.
General specs I'm looking for are:
* 8 to 48 or more rs232 serial ports on rj45
* nice-to-have software selectable pinouts (cisco v. straight)
* gig-e ethernet port (100mbps ok)
* 1U form factor
* redundant AC power
* access physical serial connections via local port #
* access physical serial connections via local IP alias (nice to have)
Can you recommend a serial port server/concentrator that I could use in place of opengear for a better value and/or lower cost?
I'm just ignorant about the current market for serial port concentrators and so far web searches have not revealed ideas, so your input is appreciated!
