The Bright Side

With people and businesses around the globe facing unprecedented challenges, Black Box wants to shine a light on the exceptional things our clients and team members are accomplishing.

A major television network called Black Box to help them connect their Emerald® KVM system to a disaster recovery site that has another manufacturer’s discontinued KVM system installed. The Black Box system engineering team worked with the customer’s network team and was able to make the connection, allowing the network’s employees to access the DR site’s system over the WAN and across the internet from multiple locations.

A leading manufacturer of graphics processing units for the gaming and professional markets, as well as system-on-a-chip units for the mobile computing and automotive market, needed to quickly support remote workers as they faced the shut-down of their development offices and labs. They turned to the Emerald KVM system, and the Remote App specifically, to support remote server work and deliver the high-quality user experience required.

At Black Box, we turned to our own technology to enable system testing of new products by R&D team members working from home. The Emerald KVM system is being used to control internal servers and devices remotely over WANs across the VPNs. Specifically, R&D staff members are using Emerald Receivers and the Windows Remote Access App to connect remotely. This gives the development and system test teams everything they need for complete control of the target servers and attached devices.
