  • Platform: Universal 

The KN2116A is an IP-based KVM s with multi-bus consoles, allowing simultaneous and independent access for a maximum of three users [ 1 local , 2 remote over IP] to control 16 directly connected servers [cascade to 256].

The use of TCP/IP for its communications protocol, provides access via its IP address from anywhere on the LAN, WAN, or Internet.

Remote operators can log in via a browser or make use of stand-alone Windows or Java applications. Java ensures multi-platform operability with any operating system supporting the Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Using the client software allows for a direct connection to the KVM by-passing the browser. Either method (browser or client) and either application (Windows or Java) give remote operators the feeling of being directly connected to the KVM.

Local console switching is accomplished either by entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard, or by using the same GUI interface as the remote users.

The unit has two methods for monitoring attached servers, AutoScan permits the incremental monitoring of selectable servers at a configurable rate, and Panel Array Mode which can simultaneously display a view of up to 16 servers in a grid array (42 in cascaded installations).

The switches feature RJ-45 connectors allowing them to use CAT 5e cable to link to the computers. This space-saving innovation provides a full 16-port switch installation in a 1U system rack, and permits the servers to be placed as far away as 130 ft.

Some of the unique aspects of the KN2116A are, Dual 10/100/1000 Mbps NICs, dial in PPP connection, Power Over the Net (via Java), Panel array, and Video quality/ tolerance adjustments to optimize performance.

With advanced security features, the KN2116A provides the fastest, most reliable, and cost effective way to remotely access and manage widely distributed multiple computer installations.
