Black Box Publishes KVM Buyer’s Guide.
Features keyboard/video/mouse solutions from desktop to KVM over IP switches, plus trays and more.
PITTSBURGH, March 30, 2010 — Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ:BBOX), an industry-leading provider of voice communications , data infrastructure , and product solutions announced today that it has published a Buyer’s Guide to assist customers who are looking for KVM switching solutions for their organizations.
K-V-M stands for keyboard, video, and mouse. A KVM switch enables a user to use one keyboard, video monitor, and mouse to control anywhere from two to several hundreds—even thousands—of CPUs or servers. KVM switching brings control, convenience, and cost savings to any organization.
The guide helps network professionals determine the best switching answers for their organization. It provides them with everything from a basic understanding of KVM to comprehensive product selection charts based on needs, features, functionality, and budget. Mike McCurry, ServSwitch™ Product Manager, said, “This guide contains one of the industry’s most comprehensive KVM switch portfolios in a simple-to-use buying guide that makes product selection fast and easy.”
The ServSwitch line from Black Box has switches that are appropriate for use in almost any computing or IT configuration. The KVM Buyer’s Guide includes desktop, server room, and single- and multiuser KVM switches; remote management and KVM extension; KVMoIP for server control around the globe; secure KVM switching; specialty solutions; and KVM trays and drawers.
For example, the ServSwitch Octet™ provides cutting edge server management with support for USB, serial RS-232, and audio. With four configurations and KVM extension up to 984.2 feet (300 m) over solid CATx cabling, this switch is an outstanding choice for test labs, demo labs, and design and broadcast environments.
With the ServReach™ Multiport KVMoIP, Black Box combines innovative CAT5 technology and server management for up to 16 or 32 servers over IP to extend server room control around the globe.
