USB controlled power cycling

Posted on 2011-10-15

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.
