  • MacMall Part #: 950266 
  • Manufacturer Part #: KV5008FA-R2  
  • Platform: Universal 

These multiplatform models can handle PC, Mac®, Sun®, and others including UNIX® machines (RS/6000™, DEC™ Alpha, HP9000™, etc.) all at the same time! They enable you to mix all platforms in a single installation.
The ServSwitch Ultra is ideal for nearly every application—from simple office installations to large network server installations. Only need PC support? We have you covered! Just check out our ServSwitch models on pages 118–119.
Versatility is the key.
Theres a ServSwitch Ultra to fit every application. The switch is available in 2-, 4-, 8-, 12-, and 16-port models in three chassis styles. It performs PS/2® mouse conversion so you can mix PS/2 and serial mice. Plus its flash-ROM upgradable, so its virtually obsolescence-proof!
New Rackmount Kits (facing page) make it easy to keep multiple switches neatly racked in your computer room. And dont worry about losing valuable rack space—each ServSwitch Ultra chassis occupies only 1U (1.75“H [4.4 cm]) or 2U (3.5“H [8.9 cm]) of space!
Plan to expand.
The full-sized chassis can be expanded up to 16 ports. Buy it with 8 ports now and expand it as your needs grow. Daisychain multiple ServSwitch Ultra units and control up to 256 servers.
The convenience of on-screen menus…
Its no secret that on-screen menus make operation of your switch a lot easier.They make switching between servers much more convenient—and you can even giveyour servers names that make sense to you.The ServSwitch Ultra gives you on-screen menus automatically!
