Product Description

The KH1516Ai Cat 5 High-Density Over the NET KVM switch is a 16-port device in a 1U-high housing allowing local and remote operators to monitor and access the entire enterprise data center over the Internet using a web-based browser.

The KH1516Ai features Cat 5e/6 cable to link to CPU modules attached to the servers, this arrangement has several advantages over standard KVM cabling:

- The use of CAT5e/6 cables permit distances between server and KVM up to 160 ft with our new 7000 series modules.
- CAT5e/6 cables are considerably lighter and easier to manipulate than traditional KVM cables
- The KVM works with any combination of PS/2, USB, Sun, and serial devices by merely connecting the applicable module.

In addition to TCP/IP connectivity, the KH1516Ai provides KVM ports for a locally attached USB and / or PS/2 console and a Mini-USB port for a VNC Laptop console – allowing access and control from the data center, over the Net, or from a laptop’s USB connection. This is a single bus unit, so although up to 32 users may be logged in simultaneously only one operator has control.

A special Message Board feature – similar to an internet chat program – lets all logged in users exchange information and communicate with each other to manage the installation cooperatively.

Other features that contribute to the switch’s versatility include:

- Panel Array Mode- which allows real-time monitoring of up to 16 servers simultaneously in a grid arrangement.
- Mouse DynaSync ensures remote and local mouse pointer alignment
- Adapter ID, the adapter holds the computer name assigned to the server and all user account information so there is no need to re-identify moved servers and their users permissions.
- VNC Port this mini-USB port allows a laptop to be connected via VNC for local access and control


- Dedicated USB port directly connects to a laptop for easy console operation
- High port density – RJ-45 connectors for up to 16 ports in a 1U housing
- One bus for remote KVM over IP access
- Supports PS/2, USB, Sun Legacy (13W3) and serial (RS-232) connectivity
