  • MacMall Part #: 7373907 
  • Manufacturer Part #: KV1416A-R2 
  • Platform: Universal 

The ServSwitch CX with IP may just be our most versatile ServSwitch ever it has all the features youre looking for to help manage your enterprise network. Like the ServSwitch CX, this model is compatible with all major computer platforms and connects via lightweight, inexpensive twisted-pair cable. But the ServSwitch CX with IP also enables you to access servers across any IP network even the Internet.

Reaches as far as your network.
Access and switch remotely between servers over a private intranet or over the Internet. All you need is a Java enabled Web browser. Password security keeps out unauthorized users.

Its secure, too.
Although the ServSwitch CX with IP can be installed behind the security of your network firewall, it also has the robust security features it needs to be safe on its own. Sophisticated 128-bit public/private key protection locks the switch tight against unauthorized access. Two-tier password protection administrative and non-adminstrative adds another layer of protection. You can also restrict client IP addresses, limit access to dialup connections only, or use non-standard port numbers to further confound would-be hackers.

Easier connections than ever!
There are no bulky KVM cables to deal with. Connect both user stations and servers via lightweight and inexpensive CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 UTP cable.

UTP cable provides more distance than KVM cable you can connect two user stations up to 984.2 feet (300 m) from the switch. This extra distance makes it practical to set up duplicate workstations within your building in your server room, in your office, wherever its convenient for you.

The servers connect with UTP cable, too. At the server end, a Server Access Module (SAM) provides keyboard, video, mouse, and speaker connections. Servers may be placed up to 164 feet (50 m) from the switch.

Multiplatform operation.
You can mix and match different kinds of servers PC, Mac, and Sun on the same CX switch! Simply choose the appropriate SAM for each server and youre set!

Whats more, you can connect the ServSwitch CX to either a PS/2 or USB (including Macintosh) keyboard and mouse it includes both connector types!

Get a clear picture.
The ServSwitch CX with IP features effective software-based skew compensation to eliminate the annoying video color drift that can sometimes happen on long UTP cable runs. To learn more about skew compensation, click on Black Box Explains.

In addition, the switch supports Display Data Channel (DDC) emulation. It enables your monitor to communicate with the attached CPUs video cards and configure the CPUs video drivers automatically at bootup.

Maximize your control.
Although each ServSwitch CX with IP supports up to 16 or 24 directly connected servers, this is by no means the limit you can daisychain switches to control up to 128 host servers. You can cascade up to three levels deep with servers situated at any level within the cascade tree.

Simple server selection.
Whether youre working at a user station or the local analog console port in the server room, you can select a server to access and control via on-screen menus or hotkeys. On-screen menus make server selection simple because you can give each server a name that makes sense to you.

Sight and sound support.
The ServSwitch CX with IP provides super-sharp resolutions up to 1900 x 1440 for all users up to 164 feet (50 m) away. And up to 984.2 feet (300 m) away, the CX displays 1024 x 1280 video resolution. By choosing a SAM with audio, you add support for stereo speakers, enabling you to hear audible alerts.

Take charge with your power.
The ServSwitch CX with IP has a power control port that enables a remote user to reset one or more power switches in the host system. Plus, dual power connectors enable the CX to draw power from its included wallmount adapter or from an optional redundant power supply if theres a power failure.

Ready right now and for the future.
The switch comes complete with rackmounting hardware to install the switch in any open 1U of rack space in your server room. It can also be flash upgraded, so its obsolescence-proof.
