Server Interface Pods
A Server Interface Pod (SIP) is a proprietary hardware unit developed by Dell and Avocent. It sends keyboard, video, and mouse signals over Category 5 cables, greatly decreasing the workload of managing normally bulky and expensive KVM cables.
The Dell™ PS/2 Server Interface Pod provides legacy support for servers with only PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports and has an included USB connection for Virtual Media. USB mouse and keyboard are not supported with this SIP.
