This KVM switch provides out-of- band access with external modem support for BIOS-level troubleshooting when the network is down. It enables IT administrators to manage network devices (e.g. server, storage, router, and switch) in server rooms via management networks that are separate from the main / production networks. If there’s difficulty in accessing the network devices through the production network, the administrators can still access them via the KVM switch. The KVM switch offers several out-of-band access methods, such as a direct console connection from a local computer, a USB console connection from a laptop, a PSTN connection via modem, or a dedicated management network connection via the Ethernet (LAN) port.
The KN series can be integrated into ATEN’s CC2000 Centralized Management Software. The CC2000 delivers a better user experience and advanced usability. By utilizing consolidated data, task-based navigation, and simplified menus, administrators can access, configure, and manage all of the IT equipments with ease.
The KN series is compatible with ATEN’s KVM over IP Console Station – the KA82 series. The KA82 series is a standalone console that replaces PC or NB, enabling users to remotely access, monitor and control all servers connected to multiple ATEN’s KN series with impenetrable security against virus threats. It is especially suitable for environments where a PC is not allowed. In addition, the KN series works with ATEN’s PDU remote power management systems from the KVM over IP switches’ user interface.
Additional exclusive features of KN series include Message Board, Panel Array Mode, Mouse DynaSync™, and the adapter ID. ATEN KVM over IP switches save user’s time and money by allowing administrators to manage their data centers from practically anywhere – minimizing travel and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) costs, ensuring the highest availability for data center services.
