It looks like CISCO is moving to a USB console port.

Can anyone confirm whether this is an "addition" to the SERIAL console port or a "replacement" of the serial console port.

If it is a replacement this will be problematic for all our serial based Out of Band Management equipment out in the field.

Thanks

So far all the equipment has shown this to be "in addition to" the RJ45 console port. I haven't heard anything regarding the USB replacing the console port, and all equipment I've come across with USB also has the RJ45 port.
