1U Matrix Cat 6 / DB 15 KVM switches
Austin Hughes Europe has expanded its range of server management solutions with the introduction of its new Matrix16 and 32-port Multi-User Cat 6 and DB-15 KVM switches. The range covers up to four-user simultaneous IP and remote access or two-user or three user simultaneous remote access. Enhanced user benefits compared with previous KVM switch platforms being simultaneous access that allows one local, one remote at 300m away and two IP users on four different KVM ports at any one time. Using either PS/2, USB or USB DVI dongles at the server end of the installation provides a cost effective method of matching the server configuration, allowing legacy servers to be migrated without replacing switch hardware. For highly cost sensitive installs the DB-15 connecting interface can be used with a traditional 3 in one combo USB and PS/2 KVM Cable.
The two-user console allows a user to work securely via a remote keyboard, monitor and mouse over a Cat 6 link up to 300m away from the installed switch / servers. Where IP is deployed, a second and third user can work securely via a remote keyboard, monitor and mouse using 128 bit secure IP access across the web. The plug and play technology provides seamless, secure access over IP via a web browser, allowing control down to bios level; no software is installed on the servers or remote PCs. 8 levels of cascade can be achieved offering control of up to 256 servers from a single top level IP switch.
The OSD user interface offers many enhanced features for switch administration and user management, including the capability to define Super Users who can create custom user profiles / access rights for specific KVM ports. The OSD supports configurable hotkey access and has English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Simplified Chinese multilingual interface.
The switches are either stand alone1U rack mount units or to save space and power feed requirements in the rack they can be integrated into the Austin Hughes comprehensive range of 1U and 2U LCD keyboard drawers.
