About KVM
Avocent’s KVM Technology
KVM stands for Keyboard, Video, and Mouse.
The main purpose of a KVM switch is to
control multiple CPUs from a single console.
A console consists of three main
components: Keyboard, Video, Mouse. A
KVM solution allows multiple sets of
keyboards, monitors and mice to be replaced
with a single set of control peripherals. KVM
technology provides easy access and control
to any connected CPU.
Avocent’s technology provides individuals
with powerful KVM connections to their
servers, data centers and information
infrastructure through progressive solutions
for network monitoring, maintenance and
management. Our proven KVM switching
solutions are designed for the desktop to the
data center. They are easy to implement,
integrate, operate, and expand – saving time
and money.
KVM switches are suitable for any
application where a user needs to operate
several computers at the same time.
Accessory KVM products are available to
provide extended cabling distances and
console signal conversion. Besides the
principle cost and power savings of multiple
sets of redundant peripherals, the end user
also benefits from increased desktop space,
and saves time and the physical effort of
moving between several computers at
multiple locations.
The technology of KVM provides added
flexibility and increased control in today’s
expanding IT infrastructure.

The SwitchView® series is the favorite of users who need to control multiple computers

market. This 4-port console KVM solution doubles as a monitor stand and supports up to
