Beachwood, OH (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
A traditional way of monitoring multiple servers and PCs was to switch between these devices one at a time through manual operation which caused a significant expenditure of man hours and bandwidth. Another problem with a configuration that requires connecting multiple devices to and from one another is that it may get confusing with the abundance of devices involved. Depending on the setup, this could include a combination of video matrix switches, rackmount LCD keyboard drawers, KVM switches, cabling or other peripheral equipment. Ultimately, this could result in costly mistakes - even for highly skilled administrators.
Abbreviated from Keyboard, Video and Mouse, a KVM Switch is the type of technology that brings flexibility in the administration of your rack mount network environment. This is a rack mountable hardware device that enables you to use, control, monitor and manage more than one computer or servers from a single USB keyboard, VGA monitor and USB mouse pointing device.
A Built-in KVM Switch easily expands connectivity all at once. From one or multiple locations (using an optional IP control), an administrator or user can easily access multiple servers and PCs. This product is thoughtfully designed for ease of use and maximum efficiency. In addition to connecting to multiple devices at one time, it has many other valuable features including support for high quality video resolution of all connected devices and support for multiple operating systems such as Windows, Sun Mac OS, Sun OS and Unix.
This 2U rackmount DVI-D KVM Switch (DVN-16PRO) delivers a streamlined method for controlling 1-16 servers or PCs that are equipped with connections for DVI-D video, USB 1.1 & USB 2.0, RS232 and 3.5mm stereo audio. This KVM switch allows the administrator to control the connected equipment from the attached keyboard console via simple commands using hotkeys, via the RS232 port or by using the front panels’ pushbuttons. In addition to these methods, there is an add-on option for IP switching that gives you the ability to control your systems from anywhere across the globe. With a single USB mouse, USB keyboard and DVI-D video display, the DVN-16PROS from SmartAVI gives you the capability to control and manage as many as 16 PCs or Servers in a rack mount configuration. When rack mounted, this device can be easily connected to a rackmount LCD keyboard drawer for an optimal space-saving rack setup. The USB KVM Switch also has two USB 2.0 ports to enable the use and sharing of additional peripheral devices such as printers or scanners. This unit also provides crystal clear images with no video degradation while supporting the highest quality video resolutions of 1920 x 1200 through single-link DVI video.
