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

Avocent MergePoint Unity 2032DAC - KVM switch - 32 ports - rack-mountable is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good hardware, horrible, terrible interface It's a display switch, what else could we say ? Oh yes, you have to buy extra 32 dongles and 32 connecting cables - dunno if ethernet cable will work but it looks the same - I havent tried because I am spending all my time to configure the visual interface of the computers plugged in.This switch is shared among 2 departments and I plugged our computers on 17-32 and theirs on 1-16 - I skipped some connections on the back to make it more organized.Now trying to name them on the interface, I cannot see all the ports because this thing is too intelligent for its sake. And to aggravate, you cannot edit the devices names from the target devices without first going into "iq adapters" to see what's in there.I am guessing it learns the IP that plugged on that port and then it tried a name resolution to pre-populate the interface but this aint working as now I see ports 5,5,6,8,8,32,32 doubled - and several of gaps on sequence that I can't make sense. Remote connection: you cannot disable https forwardingThe security certificate is expired and you cannot upload your ownYou could upgrade the firmware to get a new certificate (just release on 01/2017) but your remote clients will require Java 1.8+ while us as a developers company, still need Java 7 on our machines.Would not recommend.
