The Avocent® Universal Management Gateway appliance is the first data center device that enables true, real-time, integrated monitoring, access and control across IT and facilities systems in the data center. The appliance makes it possible for data centers to execute a unified approach to infrastructure management, resulting in greatly reduced cost and more efficient management and control.

The Avocent® Universal Management Gateway appliance is the core component of the DCIM framework. It is the data collection engine as well as the access point that provides the closed-loop control for Emerson Network Power’s DCIM solution, the Trellis™ platform.
