Why ZPE Systems?

Your network is as unique as you are.

Having worked as engineers for the industry’s top companies like Avocent, Cyclades, and Emerson, our founders know how critical it is to have custom-fit networking. Coupled with their innovation-driven philosophy, this led them to invent the first Linux-based ‘break safe’ console servers, develop universal access appliances, and put IPMI inside industry-leading servers.

Everything we do revolves around helping the people behind the network. That’s why in 2013, we assembled a team having more than 100 years of combined networking experience.

We quickly developed patented, vendor-neutral hardware & software to bring our vision to life — and bring you convenient control of all your systems.
