Smart IP Access

Extend KVM control over IP


Product Overview

Smart IP Access is a rack-mountable IP device for remote, out-of-band KVM access to servers and network devices. It provides access via LAN, WAN, or Internet connection to either a single server or to mixed server environments. Smart IP Access is ideal for data centers, high-density server environments, and medium to large businesses that are managed by legacy KVM switches.

Smart IP Access can be attached to almost any switch or server, making it the perfect add-on device and preserving your existing investment. It comes with configuration definitions for all Minicom and most 3rd party KVM switches.

Smart IP Access provides built in remote control over two Serial devices. For example, Serial control of power management enables you to reboot remotely and to power servers on and off from any location.

Smart IP Access offers industry standard, 128-bit SSL encryption to prevent security breaches. In addition, the dual IP connection provides redundancy and security, enabling you to connect to an external network in addition to a secure internal network.

Smart IP Access can be used in either stand-alone applications or can be managed by KVM.net® II. KVM.net® II is Minicom's comprehensive enterprise system for secure, centralized management of global KVM access to servers. It unifies administration, monitoring, and control of all servers and users in an organization, across geographical locations. Smart IP Access also allows redundant direct access while remaining under KVM.net® II security policy.
