ATEN unveils new IP KVM switches

Features include Panel Array Mode to simultaneously monitor multiple servers

By CBR Staff Writer

ATEN, a provider of KVM (keyboard/video/mouse) switches, remote management, LCD consoles, video and data connectivity offerings, has unveiled new eight and 16-port KVM switches with built-in IP access.

The company said that the new switches use both USB and PS/2 connectivity, and are IP-based KVM control units that allow either a local or remote operator access to eight and six directly connected computers, or through daisy chaining connections, up to 128 and 256 servers, respectively.

The KVMs features include a Panel Array Mode where users can selectively monitor attached servers simultaneously in a grid array; and Mouse DynaSync that automatically synchronises the local and remote mouse pointer movements for perfect alignment regardless of the server’s mouse acceleration settings.

In addition, its built-in feature the Message Board lets administrators communicate with each other, helping administrators manage their server room in an efficient and flexible manner, and also provide a cost-effective IT management offering for SMBs.

The switches support the security protocols, including 128-bit SSL encryption for the Web, and RC4 128-bit encryption for secure keyboard, mouse and video data transmission.

For efficient user management integration, the CS1708i/CS1716i KVM on the NET also supports authentication and authorisation via remote servers, such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and Microsoft Active Directory.
