Networks today demand 98%+ uptime. When it's your job to make sure your network equipment is up and running, Black Box outlet-managed PDUs can be one of your best friends in the data center.
One of these switched PDUs will keep an eye on your network equipment no matter if you're in the office, across the country, or asleep at home. You'll know if something is going wrong so you can correct the situation before it turns into a crisis. The PDU will automatically notify you via e-mail, text message, SNMP, or SYSLOG when changes in current levels, temperature, circuit breaker status, and other factors exceed threshold values that you set. This gives you the chance to reboot your rackmounted equipment when devices aren't responding; disable outlets to reduce current consumption; or even switch on cooling devices to lower the rack/cabinet temperature. You can reboot equipment over the Internet, via a text message, through an external modem, or a local terminal plugged into the RS-232 port. The PDU also features a 10/100 BASE-T port for network connections.
