The Avocent MergePoint Unity MPU2016DAC is a KVM over IP 16-Port Serial Console Switch with 2 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 SLAs and minimize downtime.
