1-Local/Remote Share Access 16-Port Cat 5 KVM over IP Switch with Daisy-Chain Port


The KH1516Ai Cat 5 High-Density KVM over IP Switch offers 16 computer port configurations in a 1U-high housing for convenient rack mounting. They allow local and remote operators to monitor and access the entire enterprise data center over the Internet using a web-based browser.


The KH1516Ai features RJ-45 connectors and Cat 5e/6 cable to link to the computers and supports multiplatform. This ensures that high quality signals can travel over long distance - up to 50m* without the need for KVM extenders. Utilizing KVM Adapter Cables for the final linkup, the KH1508Ai permits any combination of PCs, Macs, Sun computers, and serial devices to coexist on the installation.

In addition to TCP/IP connectivity, the KH1516Ai provides console ports for a locally attached USB or PS/2 console and a Net.

The Laptop USB console (LUC) – allowing access and control from the data center as well as over these switches have been designed with unique and powerful features for that enable administrators to manage their entire server room and data center devices easily and conveniently from just about anywhere in the world.

A special Message Board feature - which like an internet chat program - lets any number of remotely logged in users exchange information and communicate with each other or to cooperatively manage the installation. A Panel Array Mode™ allows monitoring of up to 16 servers at once. Other features that contribute to the switches' powerful capabilities include: Mouse DynaSync™, and Adapter ID.

With 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.
