KVM over IP Switch

The Avocent MergePoint Unity™ switch provides IT administrators a complete remote management solution to access and control servers, networking equipment and other devices found in data centres and branch offices. 

The Vertiv Avocent MergePoint Unity switch enhances 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. Complement in-band tools to create a more complete remote management solution to access servers and network equipment at remote locations. Virtual media enables remote USB connections to map CD-ROM and other USB mass storage devices directly to remote servers to transfer/copy files, load updates or install new applications, etc. 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. 

Improve Physical Security

Remote smart card/CAC reader support is provided for advanced security requirements. Using the virtual media capabilities of the Vertiv Avocent MergePoint Unity switch, a smart card reader can be mapped from a desktop PC out to a remote server. Reduce the need to physically enter the data centres for local access and control. The Vertiv Avocent MergePoint Unity switch provides remote users the capabilities of a direct physical connection from anywhere to KVM, USB and serial ports of servers and other IT equipment 

Vertiv™ Avocent® IP KVM vs Embedded Server Management (Service Processors)

Provides plug-n-play access and control supporting a vendor-agnostic compute environment. Higher level of overall security and easier to deploy, maintain, and administrate.
