The Avocent® Universal Management Gateway is the first data center appliance that enables true, real-time, integrated monitoring, access and control across IT and facilities systems in the data center. The gateway makes it possible for data centers to execute a unified approach to infrastructure management resulting in greatly reduced cost and more efficient management and control.
The Universal Management Gateway appliance is the core component of the DCIM framework. It is the data collection engine as well as the access point that provides the closed loop control for Emerson Network Power’s DCIM solution, the Trellis™ platform.
The gateway combines the functions of KVM over IP, serial console over IP, rack PDU, SP and environmental management in a single chassis. When used in combination with DSView software, the solution provides remote access and control to any device that can be controlled by any of the consolidated functions.
