8-port CAT-5 dual-rail 19" LCD KVM over IP switch
with one local and one remote user access
ATEN's KL1108VN 8-port CAT-5 dual-rail LCD KVM over IP switch features an independently retractable, dual-slide 19" LED-backlit LCD monitor and keyboard with built-in touchpad.
KL1108VN allow local console and remote over IP access for operators to monitor and manage their entire data center locally at the switch, and over a network using a web-based browser. In addition, it offers out-of-band access with external modem support for BIOS-level troubleshooting when the network is down.
To help manage and control an entire data center, KL1108VN supports blade servers and chassis with powerful new features such as Power Association which allows KVM ports to be associated with ATEN PDU power outlets for power management of servers from the KVM switch's user interface.
KL1108VN now supports the new Control Center Video Session Recorder (CCVSR) and CC2000 Centralized Management Software. CC2000 puts administrators in complete control of remote data centers and branch offices no matter where they are in the world – allowing them to remotely monitor and control all devices on a network, including blade server chassis, individual blades and virtual machines. CCVSR records all operations on servers accessed through KVM over IP switches. Every operation and change from the BIOS level to logging in, from running software applications to configuring the operating system is recorded and saved to a secure video file as evidence, without exception.
The virtual media function lets you map to storage media on USB, hard disk and DVD/CD drives located on remote servers – allowing administrators to conduct file transfers, install applications, run O.S. updates, or perform diagnostics across a network with ease.
Enhanced capabilities also include: a Message Board, Panel Array Mode™, Mouse DynaSync™, Adapter ID and Secure Serial Server Access. The secure access to serial-controlled devices includes network equipment, UNIIX servers, Linux servers, Sun servers and many more serial consoles. It provides installation without needing expensive serial dongles.
With dual on-board NICs and out-of-band access with external modem support, KL1108VN is built for reliability, to ensure 24/7 availability of remote access to all server room computers.
With ATEN's 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) – ensuring the highest availability of data center services possible.
KL1108VN provides a streamlined method to conserve server room rack space by integrating a retractable LCD monitor, keyboard, and touchpad in a 1U dual rail housing that is designed to install easily and operate smoothly.
The dual rail system separates the LCD module from the keyboard/touchpad module so they can move independently of each other. This allows the keyboard/touchpad to be pushed back into the housing and out of the way when not in use, while the LCD screen can be rotated up to the rack for convenient monitoring of server operations – the LCD module's range of rotation is adjustable to provide the best viewing angle.
Enhanced Console Control
The extra console ports provide administrators with the ability to use a standard keyboard/monitor/mouse console, if they like. New powerful options allow the external console ports to connect to a KVM extender.
KL1108VN features RJ-45 connectors for CAT-5e/6 cable to connect computers up to 164 feet (50 m) from the switch. Utilizing PS/2, USB, and serial KVM adapter cables for the final linkup, KL1108VN reduces cable bulk and simplifies cable management.
• Computer selection via front panel pushbuttons, hotkeys, and multilingual onscreen display (OSD) menu

FIPS 140-2 certified cryptography provides an FIPS mode to use an embedded FIPS 140-2 certified OpenSSL cryptographic module.
Extreme Virtual Media Speeds
Virtual media supports twice the transmission speed of comparable models and supports connecting to DVD/CD drives, USB mass storage devices, hard drives and ISO images. Virtual media allows you to conduct file transfers, application and OS patches, and run diagnostics remotely.
Advanced FPGA Graphics Processor
ATEN's enhanced FPS throughput provides a responsive and vivid video display, offering resolutions up to 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz with 24-bit color at the switch's external local console, and on remote session displays.
Panel Array Mode™
Exclusive ATEN feature allows simultaneous monitoring for both local console operators and remote access users.
Blade Server Support
Support for blade server associations with KVM switch ports – allows the blade server chassis and individual blades to be integrated into the sidebar tree view for easy access.
Dual IP operation provides the backup for complete redundancy and reliability. Should one of the Ethernet ports become unavailable, the other will take over in order to keep the system functioning normally.
Configurable Network Bandwidth Settings
Network bandwidth settings allow you to streamline data throughput by adjusting the size of the data stream (bandwidth) to match network traffic conditions. Video performance can be adjusted so that data throughput is optimized for the available network bandwidth. With high-speed LAN access,the settings can be adjusted so that a greater amount of video data is sent, resulting in a higher quality video display. In a limited bandwidth situation, the settings can be adjusted so that network lag is minimized.
Automatically synchronizes the local and remote mouse movements for perfect alignment of mouse pointers, regardless of the mouse acceleration settings on the server.
To alleviate the problem of access conflicts arising from multiple log ins, the message board functions similar to an Internet chat program, allowing users to instantly communicate with each other.
The adapter ID function stores port information such as the adapter ID, OS, keyboard language, adapter name, operation modes and more. This enables administrators to relocate the servers to different ports without having to reconfigure the adapters or switches.
