Available in eight and sixteen-port configurations, the new KVM switches in Comsol’s Serverlink Altitude range provide a 19-inch rack mountable solution with PS/2 and USB support for both server and console, allowing choice of mouse/keyboard interface on either side.
With the independent cascade port, multiple units can be daisy-chained up to 16 levels without losing any ports and provide a total port capacity of up to two hundred or more PCs (depending on the unit combinations).
A fully-featured OSD (On Server Display) menu function gives a menu-driven operation that is fully intuitive to use, providing stand-out convenience in switching. Both models in the range provide support for PCs, Mac and iMac, are fully hot plug ‘n play, and come complete with all cables and connectors.
Both ServerLink Altitude KVM switches feature a console port to connect the shared keyboard, video and mouse, and PC ports to connect to the computers/servers, and there is direct channel selection and operation using front-panel push buttons and keyboard hotkeys.
The rackmount design offers a neat placement of the KVM Switch units on a standard 19 inch rack for centralised management and also for security enhancement that could be provided by a locked server room.
The switches have been designed to be equally at home in an office or industrial environment, with a robust and durable metal enclosure providing effective shielding against electromagnetic interference commonly seen in lab or factory environments, and also offering sturdy protection from accidental impact.
The switches provide full support for DOS, Windows 95/98/SE/ME/2000/XP, Linux, etc.
Covered by a year’s warranty, the 8 and 16-port ServerLink Altitude models are currently available from approved computer outlets throughout Australia.
