The Avocent MergePoint Unity appliance is the fourth-generation KVM over IP appliance from Avocent solutions. This appliance 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 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.
