Most managed devices like switches, routers and others allow a direct connection via a serial Console connection.
Console terminal serial port (COM port)
A compatible Console terminal can be setup with a PC running Windows or Linux with at least one COM port connector (male type). If your system does not have a COM port you can get an USB – COM adapter to have at least one COM port connector.
