ATEN KVM Switching & Pro A/V

Aten KVM     KVM

KVM stands for Keyboard, Video and Mouse and KVM switches allow you to control these features of multi-connected computers. ATEN KVM switches come in several different forms from a small 2 port desktop switch to a large remotely controllable KVM over IP

Cable KVM Switches | Some models have Video DynaSync™ - exclusive ATEN technology which eliminates boot-up display problems and optimizes resolution when switching between ports. Cable KVM Switch options include USB or PS2 consoles, and HDMI, DVI or VGA. The new CS692 Switch takes a giant step forward from prior cable KVM models in the Petite series, by offering full HDMI functionality, USB 2.0 peripheral sharing (via a USB hub attached to the USB mouse port), and a firmware upgrade function that allows you to keep up with latest available versions.

Cat 5 KVM Switches | These control units allow IT administrators to access and control multiple computers from a single PS/2 or USB KVM console (keyboard, monitor, and mouse) - (KH1508/16) or from two PS/2 or USB KVM consoles (one bus) - (KH2508/16). Available in 8 or 16 Port versions. These switches have been designed with unique and powerful features that enable administrators to manage their entire server room and data centre devices easily and conveniently.

Computer Sharing Devices | These offer a multi-user/single-task experience that enables two users to share the use of a computer from one or two consoles.

Desktop KVM Switches | Interfaces include HDMI, DVI, VGA and Displayport. Many models include independent switching for USB peripherals, audio, and KVM focus. The unique independent switching feature allows the KVM control to focus on one computer while the USB peripheral focus is on another computer. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate USB hub or stand-alone peripheral sharer – such as a print server, modem splitter, etc.

KVM Extenders | KVM Extenders have applications that reach far beyond the server room. Being able to extend the distance between a computer and a console, or centralise control of a number of computers in a different location, is useful in a wide range of environments, from Internet cafes to production lines. All of these environments require high-quality video to be extended over long distances. KVM Extenders continue to thrive throughout a wide range of industries, due to cost efficiency, easy cable management via CAT5, high video resolution and long distance transmission.

KVM over IP Switches | Take a look at Aten´s new generation of KVM over IP switches. The KN series, for example, allows local console access and remote over IP access for operators to monitor and access their entire data center over a network using a web-based browser. In addition, they offer out-of-band access with external modem support for BIOS-level troubleshooting when the network is down. With ATEN's KVM over IP Switches, IT administrators can manage their server rooms and data centers from practically anywhere - minimizing travel costs and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) – and ensuring the highest availability of data center services possible.

Great Value LCD KVM Switches | One of the most distinguished examples in ATEN's advanced KVM switch lineup is the LCD KVM Switch. To understand its benefits, let's first look at the two major drawbacks found with conventional KVM switches: 1) Although a single console can control multiple computers, the console that interfaces with the switch exists separately from the switch -- taking up server room space and resources; and 2) If two operators need access to the system at the same time, one of them will have to wait -- diminishing the installation's efficiency.

With an LCD KVM switch, however, the KVM console is built right into the switch. Since the monitor flips down and the unit slides back out of the way, it fits perfectly in a 1 U system rack, with no waste of space. ATEN LCD KVM Switches offer the perfect solution for enterprises that want to control server room costs, make efficient use of space, and modernize their server room capability.

Management Software/Control Center | Gain complete control of your enterprise - consolidate the management of ATEN devices.

Quality Rack KVM Switches | ATEN provides a complete range of rack KVM switches, LCD consoles and remote controllers to facilitate the installation of your server room infrastructure. With ATEN's rack KVM switches, you can access multiple computers from a single console (keyboard, mouse, and monitor). There is no need to purchase a separate keyboard, monitor, and mouse for each computer – this saves you cost, space, energy and time. The LCD consoles feature an LCD panel, a full keyboard, and a touch pad in a 1U rack-mountable housing. Simply slide the console module out and flip the cover to start using it. In addition, a KVM on the NET™ or a KVM Extender can be used in conjunction with the Rack KVM installation for remote access. You can control servers in different locations just as if you are right there in front of them, minimizing maintenance costs while guaranteeing 24/7 operation.

Secure KVM Switch | By combining physical security with controlled USB connectivity, the 2-port CS1182 and 4-port CS1184 give you the means to consolidate multiple workstations of various security classification levels with one keyboard, monitor and mouse (KVM) console.

Serial Console Server | The SN Series of Serial Console Servers integrates cutting edge technology to provide secure serial device access and management for data centers. The new SN3101 3-in-1 Serial Device Server supports RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 data transfers, as well as providing Ethernet connectivity for a wide variety of serial devices used in commercial applications. These include industrial control,data acquisition, access control, environment monitoring,banking, telecoms, remote site management, etc. This total serial data transfer system transforms the capability of legacy serial devices, and allows them to take advantage of the speed and reliability of today's modern communication techniques.

Matrix KVM Switches | ATEN Matrix KVM Switches are designed for modern data centers that require reliable, high security access and control of multiple servers. With non-blocked access and flexible expansion support, Matrix KVM switches offer high quality video sessions for secure, real-time control of your entire data center devices.

Accessories ATEN provide a number of mounting kits.
