8-port, 1-user CAT-5 IP KVM switch 

KH1508Ai CAT-5 high-density over the net KVM switch is an 8-port device in a 1U-high housing allowing local and remote operators to monitor and access the entire enterprise data center over the Internet using a web-based browser.

KH1508Ai features CAT-5e/6 cable to link to CPU modules attached to the servers, this arrangement has several advantages over standard KVM cabling:
• The use of CAT-5e/6 cables permit distances between server and KVM up to 160 ft with ATEN's new 7000 series modules.
• CAT-5e/6 cables are considerably lighter and easier to manipulate than traditional KVM cables
• The KVM works with any combination of PS/2, USB, Sun, and serial devices by merely connecting the applicable module.
• In addition to TCP/IP connectivity, the KH1508Ai provides KVM ports for a locally attached USB and/or PS/2 console and a Mini-USB port for a VNC Laptop console – allowing access and control from the data center, over the Net, or from a laptop's USB connection. This is a single bus unit, so although up to 32 users may be logged in simultaneously only one operator has control.

A special Message Board feature – similar to an internet chat program – lets all logged in users exchange information and communicate with each other to manage the installation cooperatively.

Other features that contribute to the switch's versatility include:
• Panel Array Mode- which allows real-time monitoring of up to servers simultaneously in a grid arrangement.
• Mouse DynaSync™ ensures remote and local mouse pointer alignment
• Adapter ID, the adapter holds the computer name assigned to the server and all user account information so there is no need to re-identify moved servers and their users permissions.
• VNC Port this mini-USB port allows a laptop to be connected via VNC for local access and control
