Sending automated commands to a Cisco device using SSH – Powershell

Ever need to automate a command on a Cisco device? We recently had issues with offsite backups because our MPLS link was only 5Mbit, but our VPN mesh has a 100mib pipe. Well offsite backups would saturate the link and would take more than the weekend to complete. We use this powershell script to disable our MPLS link to allow backups to complete in a timely manner, after they complete there is another script that enables the interface again.
