KVM Switching and Extension Solutions
KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) solutions allow users to control multiple computers with the same keyboard, monitor, and mouse. These devices save space, reduce the cost of multiple peripherals, and make it easier to manage multiple computers. Not only can you use a desktop KVM to access several computers from a single console, but they can also distribute high-quality video, audio, and peripheral signals through physical and virtualized servers. KVMs come in various sizes, features, and capabilities that cater to different needs and preferences.
Rackmount KVM Switches
The Rackmount KVM switches are designed for users who need a more robust and scalable KVM solution for their server rooms, data centers, or IT labs. These KVMs are mounted on standard 19-inch racks and support multiple video inputs such as VGA, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort,
or even SDI. In addition, they come with eight, sixteen, or thirty-two computer ports and have advanced features such as OSD (On-Screen Display) menus, programmable hotkeys, USB peripheral sharing, and multi-operating support, e.g., Windows, Linux, etc. Some models also support remote access and management via IP or CAT5 cables.
KVM over IP Switches
The KVM over IP switches are the most advanced KVMs that allow users to access and control their computers over the internet or LAN. These KVMs combine the features of rackmount KVMs, power control, console interfaces, and remote management. They allow users to securely access and control their servers, routers, switches, and other network equipment from anywhere at any time. They come with advanced technology such as virtual media, BIOS-level access, dual power supplies, and customizable user permissions. They also support multiple authentication methods such as LDAP, RADIUS, and Active Directory.
Secure KVM Switches
The Secure KVM switches are designed for users who need high security and isolation between their computers. These KVMs are certified by various government agencies and industry standards such as NIAP (National Information Assurance Partnership) and Common Criteria. They prevent data leakage, unauthorized access, and electromagnetic interference using advanced technologies such as optical data diodes, tamper-proof seals, and firmware validation. They also support video and audio separation, restricted USB access, and secure switching modes.
A KVM extender expands the distance between your server and your USB keyboard, display, and mouse console. It sends video and USB signals transparently over Ethernet cables between the two locations. Extenders can support up to 1600 x 1200 video resolution, giving you sharp, clear images even on large monitors. One popular KVM extender is the micro ACU4201A from Black Box, featuring dual VGA and USB.
Mini KVM Switches
The Mini KVM switches are compact KVMs designed for users who want a simple and cost-effective way to control multiple computers from a single console. These KVMs support VGA, HDMI, or DVI video inputs and come with two, four, or eight computer ports. They have basic features such as push-button or hotkey switching, LED indicators, and auto-scan mode. Some models also support audio and microphone switching. Mini KVM switches are very compact, making them suitable for home offices and small spaces.
Whether you are a home user, small business owner, or enterprise IT manager, you can find a KVM switch that suits your needs. With the right KVM switch, you can improve productivity, reduce clutter, and streamline computer management.
