Beihang University of Beijing, China Successfully Integrates Minicom's Remote Management Solution

Minicom maximizes Beihang University's existing KVM infrastructure while adding new functionality, providing a complete, cost effective remote access solution for their data center

Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading developer of remote access and KVM solutions for the data center, announced today that Beihang University (BUAA), a university of engineering science and technology in Beijing, China, has successfully integrated Minicom's remote management solution, to their tremendous satisfaction.


The library department of Beihang University had more than 40 servers which used analog KVM switches, but as the demand for constant uptime increased, there was a need for more availability and stability for the library department's IT infrastructure. Director Li, head of the Technical Department of the Library in Beihang University, wanted a remote solution to shorten response time for troubleshooting and a way to operate servers even when there wasn't anyone on site. At the same time, Li wanted to preserve the library department's existing KVM devices rather than spend money on completely new solutions.

Minicom was able to satisfy all of Beihang University's requirements with the DX matrix system, which provided a web -based access management system, added IP functionality to their analog KVM switches, and enabled multi -level access rights for their servers. The DX matrix system includes the DX 432 Central Unit, DXU IP II Remote User Unit, and XRICC PS2. With XRICC PS2, Beihang University's analog KVM switches are cascaded into the DX System, and all the servers can be seamlessly accessed directly from the DX AIM interface. Additionally, the DXU IP II provides remote access to servers with a standard Web browser through a secure IP connection.

"Because we are not limited by physical location and can work remotely, this system really helps us reduce our response time. Minicom's solution maximized our existing KVM infrastructure and investment, adding remote functionality to what we already had," said Director Li, head of the Technical Department of the Library in Beihang University. "Last but not least, I have found that having the flexibility of access right assignment and its logging function to be incredibly efficient. I can divide the workload and assign tasks to different people according their ability and responsibility, and I can monitor all of the tasks easily."
