CN8600 - Aten - IP KVM, 1-Local/Remote Share Access Single Port DVI KVM over IP Switch with USB 2.0 (1920 x 1200)

CN8600 - DVI over IP KVM Switch


The CN8600 DVI KVM over IP is a cost efficient over-IP device, which allows remote access of digital video,audio and virtual media via remote control of a PC or workstation. The CN8600 enables Over IP capability by connecting compatible ATEN DVI KVM switch and / or LCD console, such as the CS1768 (8-Port USB DVI KVM Switch) or CL6700 (DVI LCD Console). For user-friendly operation, a mini USB port on the rear panel is designed as a Laptop USB Console (LUC) port or a Virtual Media port. No additional monitor, keyboard or mouse is required locally for routine maintenance – simply use the LUC port to connect a laptop, and access any computer connected to the switch for easy on-site management. The CN8600’s Virtual Media function allows a user to perform diagnostic testing, file transfers, or apply OS / applications updates and patches from a remote console. To ensure seamless connectivity, the CN8600 is equipped with dual LAN/dual power functionality to keep operation in the server room smooth and efficient. The CN8600 also supports speaker and microphone for use locally and remotely. 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. ATEN capitalizes on providing affordable and durable Over-IP server management solutions and ensures that the equipment is worth the investment with their dependability and operational efficiency. ATEN guarantees that your CN8600 investment is protected and delivers continuous quality performance.
