StarTech.com (http://www.startech.com), a leading manufacturer of KVM Switches and Server Management Solutions, announces the availability of two new CAT5-connected KVM Switches capable of connection distances that exceed existing CAT5 KVM Switches by 30 feet.

The eight port StarView CAT5 KVM Switch (SV831DUTP) and the sixteen port StarView KVM Switch (SV1631DUTP) allow UTP (CAT5) connection between the KVM Switch and slave (remote) computers, servers and/or KVM Switches. Utilizing CAT5 cable in contrast to the conventionally used coax cable provides neater, more cost-effective connections, and greater connection distances (up to 130') than are typically offered by traditional KVM Switches.

"These products represent a significant step forward for KVM Switches utilizing CAT 5 connectivity," said Paul Lechner, Product Manager for StarTech.com. "Not only do they (CAT5 KVM Switches) eliminate the need for bulky coax cable connections, but they also overcome the distance limitations of traditional KVM Switches and provide superior range than existing CAT 5 KVM Switches on the market."

StarTech.com's 8 Port and 16 Port CAT5 KVM Switches will be available directly available from leading resellers including CDW, Insight and PC Connection. These products are also distributed by Ingram Micro, Tech Data, D&H and SYNNEX.
