OpenGear ACM5004-E-G advanced console server

With RS-242/422/485 environmental/intrusion/smoke/vibration sensors all wrapped up in a superb and superflexible system, the OpenGear ACM5004-E-G serial server gives me a chance to work on my gear remotely and is small enough that I can pack it in my kit. It can be a router, firewall, VPN, virtual serial port server, and 3G router with fail-over from Ethernet; most important, it's Linux with all the flexibility Linux brings to the table.
