MacMall Part #: 381781
Manufacturer Part #: P2-UMT242
Paragon II's superior KVM switch technology dramatically reduces equipment costs and optimizes space utilization. This generation of Paragon provides the levels of manageability, security and superior video quality needed to simplify the management of business-critical data centers. The UMT242 brings Paragon II power to small and mid-sized server rooms, at an entry-level price.
The P2-UMT242 supports up to 2 users and 42 servers. It utilizes Paragon II's superior KVM switch technology to provide higher video resolution over greater distances and non-blocked access combined with the industry's highest port density, optional integrated KVM-over-IP and rich management capabilities.
The P2-UMT242 controls functions across the following modular intelligent components:
Main Switching Unit: A secure, intelligent, non-blocked control unit that connects users to target servers.
User station with integrated IP access (P2-USTIP1 & P2-USTIP2): Includes KVM over IP capability for anytime, anywhere access and control of servers along with a slim design and GUI for point-and-click remote access.
User Station (P2-UST): Includes an intuitive on-screen user interface for easy access to attached servers. Connects to USB, Sun and PS/2 computers.
Enhanced User Station (P2-EUST): Provides all P2-UST features plus superior video quality at greater distances. Supports both manual and automatic skew compensation when used with the new Paragon II CIMs (P2CIM-AUSB, P2CIMAPS2, P2CIM-ASUN and P2CIM-APS2DUAL). Video redirection allows administrators to redirect a servers video signal from one user station to another. Supports video resolutions up to 1600x1200 at distances greater than 700 feet and 1280x1024 at distances up to 1000 feet, with refresh rates of 60/75/85 Hz. NOTE: P2-EUST & P2-UST can be used with the same Paragon II UMT switch.
Computer Interface Modules (P2CIMs): Provide "keep-alive" keyboard/mouse emulation at the server. Just plug the CIM into the server's keyboard, monitor and mouse ports and connect it to Paragon II with a single Cat5 cable.
NEW Computer Interface Modules (P2CIM-A): Provide all P2CIM features PLUS automatic skew compensation when used with P2-EUST.
Paragon II ZCIM (P2ZCIM) Allows connection for up to 42 mixed platform PS/2®, Sun®, and USB® interfaces on a single Cat5 cable chain, using only one channel port on your Paragon II unit. Enables extended distances of up to 1,000 feet from the main switching unit to the last P2ZCIM on the chain
Features and Benefits:
Compact form factors All Paragon II Main Switches come in 1U to 2U form factors and can be rack mounted. The small form-factor saves expensive rack space and minimizes electrical consumption by lowering HVAC provisioning needs. Paragon II User Stations double as monitor stands and occupy zero foot print on the desktop.
Highly scalable architecture Paragon IIs architecture allows up to 10,000 attached devices to be connected in a single logical deployment.
Stackable expansion units Paragon II stacking units allow expansion of each switch to attach up to 128 devices per switch with a single cable. Stacking simplifies cabling between ‘tiers by replacing pass through cables with a single expansion cable.
Choice of User Stations Users can choose from three types of User Stations to connect to the Paragon II; the switch can operate simultaneously with the analog User Station (P2-UST), Enhanced User Station (P2-EUST), and the User Station with integrated IP access (P2-USTIP) for remote access to Paragon II-connected servers.
Multi-platform CIMs Computer Interface Modules support USB, Sun and PS/2 for connectivity to various servers and other data center devices.
P2-ZCIM Multi-platform ZCIMs (PS/2, USB/Sun and non-Sun/USB) allow users to connect up to 42 mixed platform servers on a single Cat5 chain. This is ideal for static environments that require less powering down of servers and moving of CIMs.
Non-blocked access Paragon II provides 2, 4, 8 or 16 users unblocked access to connected servers via the P2-UST or P2-EUST.
Optional IP access with the P2-USTIP The P2-USTIP user station with integrated IP access provides optional IP access for up to 2 users for anytime, anywhere browser-based access to Paragon II-connected servers.
Hardware independence Paragon II allows different servers such as Windows, Sun, Compaq, HP and UNIX to be connected to the same switch. It also allows serial device connectivity via Raritans AUATC adapters.
High video resolution The Paragon II Enhanced User Station provides resolutions greater than 1600 x 1200 at distances over 700 feet, and 1280 x 1024 at distances up to 1000 feet, at refresh rates of 60Hz, 75Hz and 85Hz.
Manual skew compensation Users can manually adjust the video clarity per server. Skew settings can be saved for use the next time the user logs onto the system.
Automatic skew compensation When used with the P2-EUST, the new P2CIMs automatically adjust skew compensation to achieve the best video quality. (Manual skew compensation can still be done with older CIMs to override automatic settings in the new CIMs.)
Integrated power management Provides a single, consolidated view and control of Raritans Remote Power Control units connected to Paragon II. It automatically displays power strips and Paragon II targets on connected ports. Administrators can monitor status and power on/off/recycle power to remote equipment including servers, remote alarm monitoring, HVAC, and other critical data center equipment.
Paragon Manager administrative software GUI software that drastically simplifies data center management by consolidating administration of all attached equipment; gives a single view of all connected devices; captures and saves system events for auditing purposes; allows firmware upgrades over the network, associates power outlets to connected devices and maintains system profiles.
Network-based firmware upgrades Simplifies firmware updates by allowing administrators to push upgrades over the network – saving time and money.
Backward compatibility Paragon II is backward compatible with existing Paragon equipment for investment protection and continued ROI.
Integration With Raritans CommandCenter Secure Gateway (Via P2-SC) Multiple Paragon II switches can be managed centrally and seamlessly through Paragon II System Controller (P2-SC) and CommandCenter Secure Gateway (CC-SG).
