"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

"Tripp Lites B096-048 is the most advanced console server platform available today. In one secure appliance, it offers an in-band and out-of-band management solution for serial console ports, servers, virtual servers, service processors, UPS & PDU's, environmental monitoring and more. This 16 port console server management switch enables system administrators to securely access and control their data centers and networks from anywhere in the world. And this enterprise level unit is equipped with a built in modem, dual Ethernet, dual AC power, 2 gigs USB flash and runs on Linux for scalability and reduced downtime.

The B096-048 offers advanced software features that surpass the requirements of even the most demanding applications. These features include Network UPS Tools for UPS monitoring, PowerMan for integrated PDU and RPS functions with in session hotkey support, Pattern match alerting, Open access to the Linux shell for scripting, heartbeat monitoring with automatic failover, Cisco pinouts and much more. Available in 16 and 48 port models, the B096 family of Console Servers are the perfect fit for in or out of band access to vital IT assets.

Simple Cabling & Easy Installation:
The B096-048 console server management switch features Cisco compatible Rolled RJ45 ports for easy, quick installation. Install in minutes with our simple web GUI.

2 Gig USB Flash Drive for TFTP Server:
Store local copies of router and switch configurations on the 2gig USB flash for disaster recovery. You can make backups of existing configurations before undertaking any changes so that if there is a problem, you can simply roll back the config.

Offline Logs
Store offline logs on a USB flash drive to provide an audit trail. Log both the serial ports and the available networks to provide syslog, keylogging and a .pcap file for Wireshark.

Pattern Match Alerting:
Tripp Lite console servers can help you ensure uptime by proactively scanning the serial stream on the console ports for specific errors or phrases. Monitor the traffic on the serial port and watch for user defined patterns or phrases and send alerts via SMS text or email based on pattern match.

Hotkey Power on RPS/PDU:
The console server effectively provides out of band access to a dead communications device that is locked up in a frozen condition. Using simple hotkeys via SSH or telnet lets you launch a power menu to check power status, power cycle and, turn the unit off or on. We have support for thousands of PDU/RPS units for both serial and SNMP connected units.

Unlike other console servers, we provide access to the Linux core including bash. This allows you to do customization, such as creating a proactive self-healing solution that cycles power on a router or switch on ping failure.

Out of Band:
The built in modem offers dial-in, dial-back and failover. There is also support for a variety of 3G USB adapters for wireless out of band solutions.
