Remote Power Control Switching, Distribution & Monitoring:

Years ago we had this ability to remotely turn on a PC under Win3x. Difficult to remember that product's name or disposition. We can however deal with the subject today relative to what's currently available.

As usual, we're starting this List from which we'll then comment further as to Technology relevance and proper application. We can thank Sam McJunkin for this research since he asked about the ability to remotely Power On a PC for work or play! We're Listing Manufacturers and Product Sales locations in our effort to document product availability.

This goes beyond the usual KVM (Keyboard, Video & Mouse) Technology! And everything so Listed is a scaleable solution whether Corporate IT / MIS, SOHO or Individual Business Professional or Consultant. Enjoy!
