The ATEN KN1000A Single Port KVM over IP Switchprovides access and control over-IP for conventional KVM switches and servers that do not have built-in over-IP functionality. It allows system operators to monitor and access computers from remote locations for down to the BIOS-level troubleshooting, using standard Web browsers or Windows and Java based application programs, without the need to be on site for constant IT maintenance. In addition, the switch supports out-of-band access in case the LAN goes down, with external modem support as backup.

To help you manage and control widely distributed servers efficiently from a remote console, a built-in single-port power switch provides remote power management of a server connected locally, allowing you to turn a server On or Off, and reboot it. In addition, you can add an ATEN PDU unit to manage the power status of even more devices.

The switch also provides serial console management over the Internet which can remotely control serial console devices such as network switches. It makes it easy to work on many tasks simultaneously, featuring a LUC (Laptop USB Console) port for quick KVM access via a laptop, user-friendly OSD, virtual media functionality without additional cables, and video resolutions up to 1920 x 1200.

The Virtual Media function allows you to perform file transfers, system diagnostic testing, software patches and application installations, all from the remote console. There is no need to physically mount an optical drive directly at the server to perform data related tasks. The inclusion of a Java-based client ensures that the switch platform is independent and able to work with most operating systems.
