One of the challenges with intelligent cabinet power distribution units has been the ability of users to get them configured and working on their network. Only on the network can they truly provide the valuable power and environmental monitoring and alerts that the user has paid for. This has been a challenge for many and there is no end to the number of reasons why some PDUs are not networked including:

Server Technology, first to automate configuration and provisioning of their Intelligent PRO Series PDUs via Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP). In this white paper, we explore different methods for best practice PDU deployment and configuration, while letting the reader determine which methods merit further review or application.
