KN-Series are IP-based KVM control units that allow both local and remote operators to monitor and access multiple servers from a single console. The switches in this series are differentiated according to the number of buses they support and the number of KVM ports they provide. Each bus permits a separate user session so that up to three (1 Local; 2 remote) concurrent independent connections to the attached servers can take place.
Since the switch usees TCP/IP for its communications protocol, it can be accessed via its IP addresses from anywhere on the LAN, WAN, or Internet – whether the connecting computer is located down the hall, down the street, or half-way around the world. Remote operators can log in via their browser or make use of stand-alone Windows or Java GUI applications. Java allows the switches to work with JRE (Java Runtime Environment) enabled operating systems – ensuring multi-platform operability. The client software allows operators to exchange keyboard, video and mouse signals with the servers attached to the switches just as if they were present locally and working on the equipment directly.
Up to 32 users can share the switch's buses. A Message Board feature allows them to communicate with each other to facilitate port sharing. Administrators can handle a multitude of maintenance tasks with ease – from installing and running GUI applications, to BIOS level troubleshooting, routine monitoring, concurrent maintenance, system administration, rebooting and even pre-boot functions.
Local console operation is easily accomplished by entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard with a full screen GUI display.
Monitoring the installation's activities couldn't be easier. A convenient Auto Scan feature permits automatic switching from port to port at user-specified intervals, while the Panel Array Mode can display the video output of up to 42 servers at the same time.
The switch features RJ-45 connectors allowing them to use CAT-5e cables to link to the servers. This space-saving innovation means that a full 16, 24, 32 or 40 port switch can be conveniently installed in a 1U system rack, and the installation can take advantage of the internal network wiring built into most modern commercial buildings.
Setup is fast and easy. Plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is entailed. Because the switch intercepts keyboard input directly, there is no need to get involved in complex software installation routines, or to be concerned with incompatibility problems.
Since the firmware is upgradeable over the Net, you can stay current with the latest functionality improvements simply by downloading firmware updates from ATEN's website as they become available.
With its powerful security features, KN-Series switch provides the fastest, most reliable, most cost effective way to remotely access and manage widely distributed multiple server installations. KN-Series switches have an Adapter ID function that stores port information like the adapter ID, OS, keyboard language, adapter name, operation modes and more, so that when you move a KVM Adapter Cable from one port to another, the switch recognizes the same adapter cable at the new location. Also, for greater ease of use when moving the adapter cable to another switch, the adapter ID, OS, keyboard language, adapter name, and operation modes of the port stay with the adapter.
KN-Series V series switches support advanced virtual media functions, such as mapping USB DVD/CD/hard drives and other storage media to a server. Virtual media support allows you to conduct file transfers, installs applications and OS patches, and perform diagnostics remotely. You can upgrade yATEN's entire installation from a single remote console located anywhere in the world.
KN series models offer dual power supplies so that if one of the power supplies fails, the second power supply automatically takes over. In addition to supporting dual power, they guard against power failure from your server room outlets. If your server room has more than one power source, connecting the power supplies to different power sources is a wise choice. If one of the server room power supplies loses power, the switch will automatically adjust the power it draws from the second source to keep functioning.
KN series models support four temperature sensors that can control up to six fans. The sensors regulate the fans so that they run at optimum speed depending on the server room temperature – throttling down when necessary, to use energy more efficiently and prolong the life of both the fans and the switch.
KN series models are also audio enabled. Microphone and speakers are supported on the local console for the servers. Speakers are supported on the remote users' computers.
ATEN's 4th generation of KVM over IP switches exceed expectations. KN-series series feature superior video quality (HD resolution of 1920x1200), FIPS 140-2 with level 1 security standards and virtual media transmissions at twice the speed. KN series provides local console and remote over IP access for users to monitor and access their entire data center over a network. In addition, it offers out-of-band access with external modem support for BIOS-level troubleshooting when the network is down.
With dual on-board NICs and dual power supplies, KN series are built for reliability, to ensure 24/7 availability of remote access to all servers.
KN series devices can be integrated into the CC2000 Management Software. The CC2000 puts administrators in complete control of remote data centers and branch offices no matter where they are in the world - allowing IT administrators to remotely monitor and control all devices on a network, including blade servers and virtual machines.
To help you manage and control an entire data center, ATEN KVM over IP switches support blade servers and chassis. With powerful features such as Power Association - KVM ports can be associated with ATEN PDU power outlets for power management of servers from the KVM over IP switches' user interface.
Additional exclusive features of ATEN KVM over IP switches include: a Message Board, Panel Array Mode™, Mouse DynaSync™ and the Adapter ID.
ATEN KVM over IP switches save you time and money by allowing administrators to manage their data centers from practically anywhere - minimizing travel and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) costs, ensuring the highest availability for data center services possible.
