With the 8-Port IP-Based KVM and 17" LCD KVM Console Bundle from IOGEAR, users can control up to eight computers using the included 17" TFT LCD monitor complete with a keyboard and touchpad. The KVM switch features a variety of connections including a single console port, eight computer/KVM ports, one USB 1.1 Type-A port, PS/2 and USB connectivity for a second mouse and keyboard, and a single HDB-15 female secondary console video port. In addition to ports, the KVM switch features a single firmware upgrade slide switch, eight push button port selection, and a dedicated reset button.
Once configured, this 1 RU rack-mountable 8-port IP-based KVM switch supports video resolutions up to 1280 x 1024, and works with Windows, Mac, Sun Solaris, and Linux-based operating systems. Additionally, this switch supports hot-pluggable connectivity, eliminating the need to power down the switch when adding or removing computers from the system. The easy-to-use interface features push button functionality along with a browser-based GUI for easy control of connected computers. Network security has also been addressed, as IOGEAR has implemented SSL 128-bit data encryption and RSA 1024-bit certificates to help avoid unauthorized users from gaining access to connected computers.
