KH1508 / KH1516 Provide High Flexibility, Compatibility and Expandability for Server Room Administration

Taipei, Taiwan, January 29th, 2007. ATEN International, leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of advanced connectivity solutions, today adds the 8-port and 16-port Cat5 High-Density KVM switches KH1508 and KH1516 to its ALTUSEN product line. The innovative KVM switches allow users to connect up to 8 or 16 servers of multiple platforms via RJ-45 connectors and Cat5 cabling, and to control them from a single KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) console. KH1508 / KH1516 extend the distance between KVM switch and servers up to 40 meters transmitting an excellent video quality, and allow administrators to control up to 512 attached servers by linking additional units.

KH1508 and KH1516 are economical Cat5 KVM switches especially designed for growing small and medium-sized businesses in need of a flexible, scalable, convenient and secure network installation. These two new models are offered in an 8 and 16 computer port configuration with a 1U high housing for convenient rack mounting. Utilizing various customized KVM adapter cables (CPU modules), both models are compatible with existing PC, Mac, Sun and terminal-based systems. Administrators can conveniently access the connected servers via port selection switches, hotkeys and the intuitive OSD menu.

“With the development of KH1508 and KH1516, ATEN provides today’s growth-oriented enterprises with a state-of-the art solution for the centralized server management that is affordable, easy to handle, effective and secure”, says Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International. “Using KH1508 or KH1516, enterprises can save an enormous amount in terms of equipment costs, utility costs and rack space by eliminating the need for additional keyboards, monitors and mice. When their installation is ready to expand, simply daisy chain additional switches on an as-needed basis.”

Combined with Auto Signal Compensation (ASC), KH1508 / KH1516 allow signals to travel up to 40 meters and maintain an excellent video quality (1280 x 1024 pixels). The two level password security of KH1508 / KH1516 allows authorized users (up to four users and the administrator) to view and control the servers, thus protecting the system and vital business information. Furthermore, the devices feature front panel LEDs that indicate the position of the units.

KH1508 and KH1516 are available now. The MSRP for KH1508 is £235.22 and £353.15 for KH1516, not including VAT. For more information please contact
