Avocent MPU108E-001 MergePoint Unity 8 Port KVM Over IP Switch, Single AC Power
The Avocent MergePoint Unity MPU108E-001 is a 8-port, 1 digital KVM path, with single AC power supply.
The MergePoint Unity switch includes both KVM over IP and Serial Console Management technology in a single appliance. This combination provides IT administrators a complete and secure, remote management solution to access and control servers, networking equipment and other devices found in data centers and branch offices. Using both in-band and out-of-band tools together allows for a more fault-tolerant and complete, remote management solution.
