KVM SWITCHES

KVM Switch also referred to as Keyboard Video Mouse switch is a device used to connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to two or more computers. KVM switches save you money, time, space, equipment and power. These switches are also widely deployed to control pools of servers in data centers. Some KVM switches support user terminals at both ends that allow local and remote access to all the computers or servers.

A KVM switch (with KVM being an abbreviation for Keyboard, Video or Visual Display Unit, Mouse) is a hardware device that allows a user to control multiple computers from a single keyboard, video monitor and mouse. Although multiple computers are connected to the KVM, typically a smaller number of computers can be controlled at any given time. Modern devices have also added the ability to share USB devices and speakers with multiple computers. Some KVM switches can also function in reverse - that is, a single PC can be connected to multiple monitors, keyboards, and mice. While not as common as the former, this configuration is useful when the operator wants to access a single computer from two or more (usually close) locations - for example, a public kiosk machine that also has a staff maintenance interface behind the counter, or a home office computer that doubles as a home theater PC.

USB KVM Switch allows you to control up to sixteen USB computers with one USB keyboard, mouse, and VGA monitor. As the server density increases, you run out of space in racks and server room quickly. This KVM Switch is slim 1U form factor. It provides effective assistance for administrators to control multiple USB servers. This switch has built in OSD (On-Screen-Display) for server management. It is a perfect solution for managing multiple USB servers from one location.

DVI KVM Switch enables users to display and monitor video signals from four different computers or video sources simultaneously on a single screen with keyboard and mouse operation. This KVM switch processes analog and digital video signals via DVI-I connections. USB DVI KVM switch allows users to attach computers to their keyboard and mouse either via PS/2 or USB interfaces. Typical areas of application are workstations in supervisory systems, process control centers, server farms etc. Utilization of this KVM switch is particularly effective in a large-scale KVM switching system. In such a configuration, video signals from any four computers out of a larger pool of servers can be displayed and administered.

Dual Video KVM Switch is specifically designed to control up to four Dual video computers with one PS2 keyboard, PS2 mouse and two VGA or DVI monitors. This KVM Switch supports a wide range of PC hardware and software platforms. Dual video KVM switch is a perfect solution for network administrators to access and control servers from one location with dual video cards.

KVM over IP KVM switch allows remote access to manage connected PCs to the IP KVM via TCP/IP network. Multiple user access and SSL v2 / v3 secured transmission provides high performance and security management tasks on target PCs. KVM over IP KVM switch provides a non-intrusive solution for remote access and control. Remote access and control software runs on its embedded processors only but not on mission-critical servers, so that there is no interference with server operation or impact on network performance. This is a global server management solutions with keyboard, video and mouse access over IP from anywhere around the world.

Cat5 KVM Switch allows you to connect multiple computers or servers via cat5/6/7 UTP cable to the switch and then be controlled by a single keyboard, video and mouse (KVM). This rack mount KVM Switch Cat5 was specifically designed to provide added benefits to its users, such as longer distances, better cable management (Cat5e cable), higher density, and multiplatform capabilities (compatible with PS/2, USB, SUN, Mac, IBM, HP, Dell, plus Windows Vista/2003/XP/2000, Linux, Netware and UNIX operating systems)
