CIsco router serial switch box

B1izzard asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Anyone ever seen or know if there is a serial switch box for Cisco routers?  I have 5 test lab routers that I'm constantly setting up and blowing out and am having to constantly swap serial cables around.  I'm looking for something that will allow me to connect the regular DB-9 female / RJ-45 Cisco cable to the box, then from the box to the routers (hopefully being able to use the standard router cables as well since I have many).
