The main attraction is KVM.net, a system for complete out-of-band-KVM management over IP. KVM.net addresses the need for managed access in high density enterprise environments such as data centers, businesses with branch offices, testing labs, and "lights-out" facilities.

The highly available, highly secure system is designed to leverage existing installations and legacy systems with smarter management of different server/data center configurations, preserving your KVM investment.
The complete KVM.net system can manage any number of Minicoms Smart IP Access or PX devices. Smart IP Access is a high performance IP device for remote KVM access to servers and analog KVM switches, including 3rd party switches. The PX is a high performance, single server IP device for non-blocking access to servers.
Other new products include the IP Control, a high performance IP device for remote access to servers and legacy switches outside the KVM.net managed environment, and the KVMS Extender, a combined KVM and Serial extender with a new SKU compression algorithm for superior video over long distances.
