This is for the RJ-45 usually labeled "console" and connects to a PC with a serial port.  These days, serial ports are unusual on PCs so I use a USB to serial converter.  Then one can see the converter as being on COM1, COM2, etc. and can be changed in Device Manager.

The normal serial port connector is a DB-9 and the pinout for a serial port is standard for these.

The linked diagram on the opengear page shows all the pinouts for each type you mention.

Thank you for your fast reply.
Can we say this "Cisco straight" means straight cable? if so, the cable can be used to connect Opengear ( for example, IM4216) with router or switch?
