Agilent Technologies Inc. recently introduced what it touts as the industry's first remote management processor (RMP) to combine keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) over LAN with remote server management.

The feature-rich N2533A is Agilent's fourth-generation, standards-based RMP. It performs IPMI 2.0 baseboard management and includes KVM over LAN and remote storage to control several management tasks. This new processor minimizes server downtime while remotely managing power cycling, OS installation and BIOS upgrades. The highly integrated RMP solution reduces external component count, board space and system costs, added the company.

"There are companies that provide remote-management or KVM-only solutions, but Agilent is the first to combine these two important features in one chip," stated Thomas Goetzl, worldwide marketing manager for remote systems management and KVM solutions in Agilent's Semiconductor Products Group. "As the market leader, our customers look to us to raise the bar and push remote management technology to the next level. We already offer the industry's most complete portfolio of chips, cards and turn-key software solutions for BMC, KVM over LAN and remote storage."

The new N2533A processor is targeted at servers and plug-in cards. According to Agilent, the product's digital KVM and remote management features provide end-customers with tools needed to increase IT productivity, such as using the Web to restore service and fix computer-related issues from anywhere on the network without the need for additional hardware.
