A Console Access Solution to Replace the Cisco 2509

Monday, July 8th, 2013

The Cisco 2509 router/hub has long been a favorite solution for network engineers who need reliable access to console port functions on remote network equipment. In fact, the Cisco 2609 did such a great job of providing remote console access that many network administrators continued to rely on the 2509 even after the product was discontinued in 2004.

Although Cisco 2509 units continue to provide an efficient console access solution, it has become increasingly difficult to find Cisco 2509 units since their discontinuation in 2004. This means that in order to expand remote network management capabilities and provide remote console port access for more and more network devices, a suitable replacement for the 2509 is needed.
