MergePoint Unity Digital KVM





Avocent MergePoint Unity (MPU)


“”With our MergePoint Unity, my staff is able to monitor and manage our servers more effectively and efficiently.”  – Peter Haffner, Tunxis Community College, Farmington, CT

The MergePoint Unity® switch is the fourth generation KVM over IP appliance from Avocent.

This industry leading appliance 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. Remote, out-of-band connections complement traditional in-band/software tools to improve troubleshooting, shorten response times and help minimize unplanned downtime.

The MergePoint Unity appliances provide remote users the capabilities of a direct, physical connection to KVM, USB and serial ports of servers and other IT equipment from anywhere.
