The ATEN 16-Port KVM over IP Switch was designed for modern data centers that require reliable, high security access and control of multiple servers. With non-blocked access and flexible expansion support, this Matrix KVM switch offers high quality video sessions for secure, real-time control of all your data center devices.

With automatic skew compensation and Auto Signal Compensation (ASC) techniques, Matrix KVM switches provide enhanced video quality via Cat 5e/6 cabling - 1280 x 1024 @ 60 Hz for up to 330 yards (300 m). The full-screen Graphical User Interface offers a tree view list of installed devices, providing smooth navigation and convenient access and control, saving on training time, costs, and increasing user efficiency.
