The simply named Console Cable has an iPad/iPhone 30-pin connector on one end an an RJ-45 plug on the other. The RJ-45 connector is designed for use with Cisco networking equipment. Note that while the RJ-45 is the same as the kind you see on an Ethernet cable, the cable is wired for Cisco’s console port specifications (Serial I/O). The cable is not designed for Ethernet use. The cable costs $69 and is specifically designed for use with an app named Get Console. This combination of products provides one more example of how far into the enterprise the iPad has come less than a year since its release.
