Avocent Announces First Integrated Solution of Serial over LAN and Console Management

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., August 8, 2005 — Avocent Corporation (NASDAQ: AVCT) extends its leadership in providing connectivity solutions with the addition of IPMI Serial over LAN (SoL) functionality to its CCM console management appliances. Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) and SoL are rapidly gaining momentum as the next-generation industry standard for server and data center device management. IPMI-enabled servers are currently shipping from Dell, IBM and other OEMs.

The multi-port Avocent CCM appliances offer administrators the key benefit of simplified cable management of network and server assets with both physical ports for wired connections and virtual ports for connecting to IPMI-enabled devices over the LAN. Virtual serial ports will provide industry-standard Telnet and SSH clients with cable-free serial console access to IPMI-enabled servers. Serial over LAN functionality will be available within the 8, 16 and 48-port CCM appliances.

“IPMI and Serial over LAN are exciting technologies that ease the daily challenge of maintaining a healthy data center,” said Dave Perry, executive vice president of global sales. “With our business strategy, OEM relationships and dedication to research and development of IPMI management appliances and software, Avocent is committed to a leadership role in the advancement of standards-based management within the enterprise.”
The Avocent family of IPMI products, managed by DSView 3 management software, also includes the DSI5100 proxy appliance. It supports 64 IPMI connections and provides a browser-based, out-of-band interface to securely monitor and control power and system health on IPMI-enabled servers.

Demonstrations of Serial over LAN functionality in CCM appliances will take place in the Avocent booth (#454) at LinuxWorld in San Francisco, Aug. 9-11. General availability is later this month.
