Webmaster NewsMINNETONKA, Minn. – Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today introduced the Digi Passport I-KVM, a pocket-sized, cost effective tool that allows IT personnel to easily manage remote servers and remote network equipment. The Digi Passport I-KVM provides KVM over IP and console management functionality allowing users to manage remote servers via KVM over IP while simultaneously managing another device like a router through a serial console port. It is ideal for accessing and managing servers and network equipment at remote locations such as remote offices, remote retail locations and remote educational/lab facilities. It is also ideal for managing equipment housed at hosting companies and for cost-effectively IP enabling analog KVMs.

Loyola College’s IT department uses the Digi Passport I-KVM to manage a server in a closet located in a remote building on its campus. Patrick Reavey, senior systems engineer for Loyola, comments: “We can see a lot of uses for this device throughout our campus. The low cost and scalability will allow us to add more units as needed. It was very easy to set up and has proven extremely reliable. We also no longer need to conduct regular site visits to manage the server. This has saved us time and made us more efficient.” Read more
