It's a Compaq-originated thing - an interface card that allows you to do 
everything remotely - i.e. with the lights out in the server room.

Not exactly sure of the origin, but I used to use it in a Compaq server farm 
and it is a great idea, especially for remote / adsl connections.

After all, workig from home in my jammies has a certain appeal - not to 
mention it's closer to the beer fridge !!
