KVM Over the NET ™
The KVM Over the NET™ switches allow local and remote operators to monitor and
access the entire enterprise data center over the Internet using a web-based browser. In
addition, they offer out-of-band access – including external modem support – for BIOSlevel troubleshooting when the network is down.
These switches have been designed with unique and powerful features that enable
administrators to manage their entire server room and data center devices easily and
conveniently from just about anywhere in the world.
To help you manage and control your entire datacenter environment, we now support
blade servers and chassis. Also, there are some new powerful features such as Power
Association, which enables the switch’s KVM ports to be associated with power outlets
on an ATEN/ALTUSEN PDUs – therefore allowing power management of the server
attached to the port from the switch’s interface. If a server has dual power supply,
secondary power association lets you associate a second outlet port and synchronize
the operation for both power supplies. The KVM Over the NET™ switches’ powerful
capabilities further include: Message Board , Panel Array Mode, Mouse DynaSync,
Adapter ID, and Virtual Media.
The Virtual Media function lets you map USB storage media (including DVD/CD drives),
and image files to a remote server – allowing administrators to conduct file transfers,
install applications and OS patches, and perform diagnostics remotely with ease.
With their dual on-board NICs and dual power supplies, these switches are built for
24/7 reliability to ensure the highest rate of availability for your server room and data
center services. The switch’s design also features Green IT solutions that include four
temperature sensors to regulate up to six fans – making sure they are always running at
optimum speed – throttling down and speeding up depending on the room temperature,
reducing data center IT operation costs through a more efficient way of using energy.
With Altusen KVM over the NET™ switches, IT administrators can manage their server
rooms and data centers from practically anywhere – minimizing travel costs and MTTR
(Mean Time to Repair) – and ensuring the highest availability of data center services

Power Association
Used in conjunction with ATEN/ALTUSEN PDUs power management device, you can
associate a KVM Over the NET Switch’s port with a PDU’s power outlet, and then
manage the power operation of a server from the switch’s interface – a single interface
point. It also enables you to associate a second outlet port if the server has a dual
power supply, and lets you synchronize the operation for both power supplies. In
this way, Power Association reduces maintenance time and increases management
Blade Server Support
Support for blade server associations with KVM switch ports allows the blade server
chassis and individual blades to be integrated into the sidebar tree view and accessed
Improved SNMP Trap
Monitor the critical events on your system and customize the settings according to
your needs. Logged events are divided into categories providing clear and complete
information to administrators.
Dual IP/Dual Power
Dual IP/ Dual Power supply operation provides the backup redundancy, and reliability.
Should one of the IP or one of the power supplies become unavailable, the other will
take over in order to keep the system functioning normally.
Magic Panel
A special hideaway control panel with configurable function icon enables you to control
and manage the servers more convenient.
Ease-to-use user interface
A user-friendly, intuitive, GUI provides convenient, access, configuration and operation.

minimize user training time and increase productivity.
Virtual Remote Desktop
The remote desktop can appear full-screen or as a window with a flexible scaling video
display. Advanced features such as the Message Board, Mouse DynaSync™, Virtual
Media, and Keyboard Pass Through, create a Virtual Remote Desktop that allows users
to operate servers from remote locations just as if they were actually at the local site.
Superior Video
With enhanced fps throughput for crisp responsive video display, the switches offer
resolutions of up to 1600 x 1200 @ 60Hz; vibrant 24-bit color depth for rich remote
session display at up to 50m
Enterprise Solutions
Configurable Network
Bandwidth settings
A Network setting is provided that allows you to streamline data throughput by
adjusting the size of the data stream (bandwidth) to match network traffic conditions.
Video performance can be adjusted so that data throughput is optimized for the
available network bandwidth. With high speed LAN access, the network setting can
be adjusted so that a greater amount of video information is sent, resulting in a higher
quality video display. In a limited bandwidth situation, the network setting can be
adjusted so that net lag is minimized.
Mouse DynaSync
Automatically synchronizes the local and remote mouse movements for perfect
alignment of mouse pointers, regardless of server mouse acceleration settings.
Panel Array Mode
Panel array mode permits simultaneous monitoring of the video output of the
installations’ servers. Operators can monitor the screen display of up to 40 servers for
real-time server monitoring.
Message Board
To alleviate the problem of access conflicts arising from multiple logins, the Message
Board functions like an Internet chat program, allowing users who are logged in to
instantly communicate with each other.
Intelligent Bus Assignment
– Flexible Port Switching
With Intelligent Bus Assignment users are automatically assigned to one of four buses
as they log in. With Flexible Port Switching, up to 32 users can be flexibly distributed
over 4 separate bus sessions and multiple users are allowed to share access to one
server for maximizing system efficiency.
Adapter ID
The Adapter ID Function stores port information such as the Adapter ID, OS, keyboard
language, adapter name, operation modes, and etc. This enables administrators to
relocate the servers to different ports, without having to re-configure the adapters and
the switches
Virtual Media
Virtual Media support lets you map DVD/CD-ROMs and other storage media to a
remote server. This function allows you to conduct file transfers, application and OS
patches, and diagnostics remotely.
Green IT– Variable Fan
The switches have support for four temperature sensors that can control up to six fans.
The sensors regulate the fans to run at optimum speed, using energy more efficiently
and prolonging the life of both the fans and the switch.
