Single port, VGA-USB-PS/2 KVM over IP 

for one local/remote user access, with virtual media 

• High video resolution - up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz 24 bit color depth for the local console and remote sessions
• Virtual-media support
• TLS 1.2 encryption to protect password when users log in

ATEN CN8000A features superior video quality with HD resolutions up to 1920x1200, LUC (laptop USB console) for easier KVM access, user-friendly local console OSD and virtual media function without additional cable.

CN8000A single-port KVM over IP 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. 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.

ATEN CN8000A 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.

CN8000ACN8000A expands on previous models by providing a dedicated RS-232 port for modem access or serial console management, a PON port to connect an ATEN PDU and USB 2.0 virtual media capability.

A Windows client and a Java client are available for remote access. They allow IP connection and login from anywhere over the Internet. In addition, ATEN also provides an iOS app - PadClient, whose intuitive interface makes it easy to connect to the KVM over IP switch and control computers direct from your iPad. Please visit the PadClient webpage for more information.

To meet advanced security requirements, CN8000A's virtual media function allows a Smart Card / CAC reader on a user's local system to be mapped to a remote server. CN8000A provides a fast, reliable and a cost effective way to remotely access and manage widely distributed multiple computer installations.

Features and Benefits
• Laptop USB console (LUC) - A dedicated USB port directly connects to your Laptop for easy console operation
• Over-IP capability for legacy KVM switches - Protects your original KVM switch investment - No need to purchase new KVM switches to achieve the benefits of over-IP connectivity
• Multi-keyboard language support - On-screen keyboard - CN8000A supports multiple keyboard language input - including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Traditional Chinese. There is no need to have a separate keyboard for each language - you can input key data in any of these languages with CN8000A's convenient on-screen keyboard
• External authentication support - In addition to its own security protection, CN8000A allows you to set up log in authentication and authorization management from external sources such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and MS Active Directory
• Ease-to-use user interface - A user-friendly, intuitive, GUI provides convenient, access, configuration and operation. Local Console, browser-based and AP GUIs offer a unified multilanguage interface to minimize user training time and increase productivity
• Virtual remote desktop - The remote desktop can appear full-screen or as a window with a flexible scaling video display. Advanced features such as the Message Board, Mouse DynaSync™, virtual media, and Keyboard Pass Through, create a Virtual Remote Desktop that allows users to operate servers from remote locations just as if they were actually
at the local site
• Superior video - With enhanced fps throughput for crisp responsive video display, the switches offer resolutions of up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz; vibrant 24-bit color depth for rich
remote session display
• Configurable network bandwidth settings - A Network setting is provided that allows 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 network setting can be adjusted so that a greater amount of video information is sent, resulting in a higher quality video display. In a limited bandwidth situation, the network setting can be adjusted so that net lag is minimized
• Mouse DynaSync automatically synchronizes the local and remote mouse movements for perfect alignment of mouse pointers, regardless of server mouse acceleration settings
• Message board - To alleviate the problem of access confl icts arising from multiple logins, the Message Board functions like an Internet chat program, allowing users who are logged in to instantly communicate with each other
• Virtual media support lets you map DVD/CD-ROMs and other storage media to a remote server. This function allows you to conduct fi le transfers, application and OS patches, and diagnostics remotely
• Smart Card reader function allows a reader plugged into a local client computer's USB port to be redirected, and appear as if it were plugged into the remote server. One purpose of smart cards (Common Access Cards, for example), is to allow authentication to the remote server from the local client.

Optional KVM over IP Console Stations
For broadcast, control rooms, labs and studios, or anywhere instant access is needed and stringent security is required (replacing a PC), optional KVM over IP console stations (see listing below) provide high-performance, KVM-over-IP access in self-contained, low-maintenance appliances.
