We have a customer with remote sites. These sites are in an environment that often requires a power cycling of network equipment (Modem/Router/switch/etc.).
I was wanting to find some kind of device that would let me power cycle a power board when there is a lock-up on one of these devices.
I envision that this would be something along the lines of a USB device that was triggered to power cycle when it was no longer able to ping an external IP address.
