KN2116A - Aten - KN 16 Port CAT5 High Density KVM Switch over IP with 1 local console and 2 remote user access (3 bus), Cascade, Panel Array Mode, Access

KN2116A pmvd313


The new generation of KVM over the NET™ switches allows local and remote operators to monitor and access the entire enterprise data center over the Internet using a web-based browser. In addition, they offer out-of-band access – including external modem support – for BIOS-level troubleshooting when the network is down. To help you manage and control your entire datacenter environment, we now support blade servers and chassis. Also, there are some new powerful features such as Power Association, which enables the switch’s KVM ports to be associated with power outlets on an ATEN/ALTUSEN PDUs – therefore allowing power management of the server attached to the port from the switch’s interface. The KVM Over the NET switches’ powerful capabilities further include: Message Board, Panel Array Mode, Mouse DynaSync, and Adapter ID. A special Message Board feature – which like an internet chat program – lets any number of remotely logged in users exchange information and communicate with each other or to cooperatively manage the installation. A Panel Array Mode- allows real-time monitoring of up to 16 servers at once. Now, using Altusen KVM Over the NET™ switches, IT administrators can manage their server rooms and data centers from practically anywhere - minimizing travel costs and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) - and ensuring the highest availability of data center services possible.
