Techopedia explains Text For Banner

Text for banner is a popular technique network administrators implement to warn or alarm users attempting to login to a router. Generally, these messages are implemented to warn a malicious hacker against the illegitimate access to a router. Of course, it's not as if a hacker will stop because of a message if they have intent of breaking into a system. Just as common is a message to differentiate among many routers of the same make and model within an enterprise IT infrastructure.
