The Avocent MergePoint Unity MPU1016DAC is a KVM over IP 16-Port Serial Console Switch with 1 Digital Path and dual-AC input Power Supply.
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 SLA's and minimize downtime.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. According to the manufacturer, as long as the correct video input is available, this KVM should work with both of those operating systems. The MergPoint KVM series is operating system independent.
Question: I need to connect to console ports of Cisco routers and switches?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
You can use the Avocent MPUIQ-SRL Serial Dongles to connect Cisco sources to the Avocent (by Vertiv) MPU1016DAC. An administrator can choose between the "ACS console server" and "Cisco" pinouts for each MPUIQ-SRL serial port via the local user interface or the remote OBWI. ACS is the default.
For more information, please refer to "Appendix B: Using Serial IQ Modules" of the Avocent MPU1016DAC Manual (PDF)
