The KN Series 16-Port KVM over IP Switch from ATEN supports HD resolution video, FIPS 140-2 with level 1 security standards, and virtual media transmissions at twice the speed. The KN series provides local console and remote over IP access for users to monitor and access their entire data center over a network. In addition, it offers out-of-band access with external modem support for BIOS level troubleshooting when the network is down.

With dual on-board NICs and dual power supplies, the KN series are built for reliability, to ensure 24/7 availability of remote access to all servers. KN2116VA can be integrated into the CC2000 Management Software. The CC2000 puts administrators in complete control of remote data centers and branch offices, allowing IT administrators to remotely monitor and control all devices on a network, including blade servers and virtual machines. To help you manage and control an entire data center, ATEN KVM over IP switches support blade servers and chassis.

Thanks to Power Association feature, KVM ports can be associated with ATEN PDU power outlets for power management of servers from the KVM over IP switches' user interface. Additional, the KVM features a message board, Panel Array Mode, Mouse DynaSync, and the Adapter ID.
