Minicom Phantom MX IP

Analogue-Digital KVM Switch

The Phantom MXIP system is a multi-user, multi-platform solution for local and remote IP KVM server management, which allows one local and one remote IP user to simultaneously access and control 63 servers. Based on Minicom's original DS (Distributed Switching) technology, the Phantom MXIP is the most scalable and flexible KVM solution for local and remote server management - with IP access

How it works

The Phantom MXIP system consists of one Phantom MXIP manager unit with an IP port, an optional second management unit, the Universal Phantom Manager (UPM) and up to 63 Specter II remote units (one for each server). Both manager units are rack-mountable. All components are connected to each other via one standard CAT5 cable, and you simply add one compact Specter unit per server. No external power is needed at the remote Specter units.

Industry Standard Security

The industry's most secure encryption, using 128-bit SSL protocol, guards your corporate data through every kind of remote access, to efficiently prevent hacking and security breaches

BIOS-level, Multi-Plattform Access

As an out-of-band solution, the Phantom MXIP lets you connect directly to servers on the BIOS-level to access and control mixed environments, including PS/2, SUN, USB and RS-232 devices.

Remote Access Internet, LAN or Modem

The Phantom MXIP gives you convenient access using standard TCP/IP connections to mission-critical servers through Internet or LAN, with DSL, ISDN, analog modem, or back-up LAN access if the network is down. The Phantom MXIP's browser-based functionality avoids the need to install proprietary software on client or server.
