The ATEN CN8000A Single Port VGA KVM over IP Switch features resolutions up to 1920 x 1200, LUC (Laptop USB Console) for easier KVM access, user-friendly local console OSD and virtual media function without additional cable. It provides access control through over-IP for conventional KVM switches that do not have built in over-IP functionality. It allows system operators to monitor and access computers from remote locations using standard Web browsers or Windows and Java based application programs. The CN8000A connects to the Intranet either LAN or WAN simply by using an industry standard Cat 5e/6 cable, and is connected to a local KVM switch or server via a custom KVM cable.
The switch uses the standard TCP/IP protocols for communications; it allows the connected server or KVM switch to be accessed from any computer over the internet – whether that computer is located down the hall, in other areas of the country or branch offices in other parts of the world. It has a dedicated RS-232 port for modem access or serial console management, a PON port to connect a ATEN PDU device and USB 2.0 virtual media capability.
A Windows Client Viewer and a Java Applet Viewer are available for browser access, while Windows Client AP and Java Client AP programs are provided for non-browser GUI access. They allow IP connection and login from anywhere over the internet. Inclusion of a Java-based client ensures that the CN8000A is an independent platform, and is able to work with practically all operating systems.
To meet advanced security requirements, the CN8000A’s Virtual Media function allows a Smart Card / CAC reader on a local system to be mapped to a remote server. The CN8000A provides a fast, reliable, and a cost effective way to remotely access and manage widely distributed multiple computer installations.
