Identify an Unusual USB Port

connectorupsusb

The back of our APC Smart-UPS 2000 has a USB port so that it can be monitored from a server it supplies.

However, this USB port doesn't appear to be a standard USB connector. It looks a little like an RJ-45 connector, I tried an Ethernet cable in case the port was just mislabeled but that didn't fit either.

Strange USB port

Can anyone help identify the type of USB it is?

That is a port for a UPS Communications Cable Simple Signalling - USB to RJ45 cable for connecting to a computer. The cable is included with many compatible APC devices.
