Infrastructure Management &
Monitoring for
Business-Critical ContinuityTM
The Avocent MergePoint Unity switches include both KVM over IP and serial console
management technology in a single appliance.
This unique combination provides IT administrators a complete remote
management solution to access and control servers, networking equipment and
other devices found in data centers and branch offices.
The MergePoint Unity switches enhance the in-band management typically done
through the NIC of IT equipment by providing secure and remote out-of-band
connections directly to the physical KVM, USB and serial ports. This unified approach
enables IT administrators a faster method to diagnose, reconfigure or restore
equipment to meet SLAs and minimize downtime.
Improve Remote Management and Staff Efficiency
• Reduce the time required to remotely diagnose/reconfigure/repair/restore servers
as well as network devices and other hardware with serial configuration and/or
management consoles.
• Built-in Web interface for
standalone applications
or can be managed
with the DSView® 3
management software*
• Complement in-band tools to create a more complete remote management
solution to access servers and network equipment at remote locations.
• Local and remote browser
interface for easy setup
and use
• Integrated serial device support allows secure SSH connections to the physical
serial ports of devices attached to the MPUIQ-SRL module. The Cisco®
configuration settings electronically pin out the module to enable a fast and direct
connection to Cisco configuration ports, without the need for any additional
external wiring adapters or special wiring.
