Attempting to minimize hardware in critical working areas? Trying to eliminate the need of traveling back and forth between computers and different server rooms?
In the realm of connectivity products, one of the most overlooked, yet valuable, tools in the arsenal of the network administrator is the console extender – also known as a KVM extender. Whilst the technology has been around for many years, KVM extenders have certainly proved to have quite the staying power.
KVM extenders allow a computer’s keyboard, monitor, and mouse to be located up to 300m away from a computer or KVM installation. Thus personnel can be move out of cluttered, crowded, hardware heavy rooms and still be able to perform their jobs as if they were there—perfect for small office home office (SOHO) users, to libraries and production lines, and data centers.
