ServSwitch CX Quad IP

Four simultaneous IP users plus one local user can use this multiplatform KVM switch with any of up to 16 connected devices.

Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Features

  • IP support enables you to access servers remotely.
  • Connect up to four IP users, plus one local user, simultaneously.
  • 1600 x 1200 maximum resolution, or up to 1920 x 1200 in half-width mode.
  • Details

  • Simplify cabling with CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 UTP cable.
  • Supports PC, Macintosh®, and Sun™.
  • Connect PS/2 or USB supported servers/computers.
  • Cascade switches to control up to 256 servers.
  • The ServSwitch™ CX Quad IP has all the features you're looking for to help manage your enterprise network. Like the ServSwitch CX with IP (KV1416A-R2, KV1424-R2), this model is compatible with all major computer platforms; connects via lightweight, inexpensive twisted-pair cable; and enables you to access servers across any IP network—even the Internet. The ServSwitch CX Quad IP supports up to four remote users over TCP/IP using VNC, plus a local user, for a total number of five users simultaneously.

    Reaches as far as your network.
    Access and switch remotely between servers over a private intranet or over the Internet. All you need is a Java® enabled Web browser. Password security keeps out unauthorized users.

    It's secure, too.
    Although the ServSwitch CX Quad IP can be installed behind the security of your network firewall, it also has the robust security features it needs to be safe on its own. Sophisticated 128-bit public/private key protection locks the switch tight against unauthorized access. Two-tier password protection—administrative and non-adminstrative—adds another layer of protection. You can also restrict client IP addresses, limit access to dialup connections only, or use non-standard port numbers to further confound would-be hackers.

    Easier connections than ever!
    There are no bulky KVM cables to deal with. Connect servers via lightweight and inexpensive CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 UTP cable.

    The servers connect with UTP cable. At the server end, a Server Access Module (SAM) (sold separately) provides keyboard, video, and mouse connections. Servers may be placed up to 32 feet (9.8 m) from the switch.

    Multiplatform operation.
    You can mix and match different kinds of servers—PC, Mac®, and Sun®—on the same CX switch. Simply choose the appropriate SAM for each server and you're set.

    Get a clear picture.
    The ServSwitch CX Quad IP features effective software-based skew compensation to eliminate the annoying video color drift that can sometimes happen on long UTP cable runs.

    In addition, the switch supports Display Data Channel (DDC) emulation. It enables your monitor to communicate with the attached CPUs' video cards and configure the CPUs' video drivers automatically at bootup.

    Maximize your control.
    Although each ServSwitch CX Quad IP supports up to 16 directly connected servers, this is by no means the limit—you can daisychain switches to control up to 256 host servers. You can cascade up to three levels deep with servers situated at any level within the cascade tree.

    Simple server selection.
    You can select a server to access and control via on-screen menus or hotkeys. On-screen menus make server selection simple because you can give each server a name that makes sense to you.

    Sight and sound support.
    The ServSwitch CX Quad IP provides super-sharp resolutions up to 1900 x 1200 for all users up to 32 feet (9.8 m) away. And for IP users the CX displays 1600 x 1200 video resolution.

    It can also be flash upgraded, so it's obsolescence-proof.
