I'm puzzled. What do you want exactly? You only need a console when you
visit the box, surely, and then you could use a laptop? Or do you want
to have your serial port connected to a serial concentrator so you can
access that over ssh? If that's the case, I guess you're in a bit of a
nice market, and will pay for the privilege.
