On a budget? No problem, Packet Power offers smart power cables which not only saves you money but time as well.
To install a smart PDU, you would need to get the rack ready. To do this, first remove the existing gear, then run an Ethernet cable, allocate the switch port, and finally assign an IP address.
You can implement Packet Power smart power cables by simply unplugging the PDU and adding the smart power cable. Now you can instantly begin monitoring.
Simply put, using a Smart Power Cable is the easiest, most cost-effective way to convert any unmetered rack PDU into a smart PDU.
