KVM Buyer’s Guide
Analog VS. Digital KVM
Analog vs. digital KVM switching
A KVM switch enables you to control multiple
servers and other equipment from one keyboard,
monitor, and mouse workstation. KVM switches
give you the flexibility to access servers that are
down the hall or around the world. How you
access your servers depends on the type of switch
you use. There are two types of KVM switches:
analog and digital.
Digital systems enable access to an almost
unlimited number of users and are easy to expand.
Digital switches also enable you to leverage
your existing cabling infrastructure and require
far less cabling than analog systems do. Analog
switches use a dedicated cabling system often
requiring a large number of cables and a system
of cable management.
How analog and digital switches work.
In-band or out-of-band management.
Analog switches were the first type of KVM
switch and are still the most prevalent. Analog
KVM switches work by sending analog KVM
signals over dedicated cabling to specific attached
servers. Digital KVM switching works using the
Internet or LAN and is called KVM switching over
IP (Internet Protocol), or KVMoIP. Digital switches
take analog KVM signals and convert them to
digital packets. These packets are compressed so
they can be transmitted over the Internet or LAN.
Analog KVM switches have an out-of-band
management system, which has a few advantages.
One is network independence. If your network
fails, you can still control your servers. But because
digital KVM switches work through in-band
management, server control is gone if the network
goes down.
Out-of-band management systems offer strong
security because they are physically isolated.
However, in-band digital systems can use highly
effective DES, SSL, and other Web browser-based
security systems.
Another advantage of out-of-band management is that it provides the best video quality
and mouse synchronization. Because video is
compressed and converted in digital in-band
management systems, video quality can be
degraded. Video signals also use a lot of
bandwidth, which can negatively affect video
quality and network performance. Mouse latency,
in which mouse control lags, often occurs, too.
Stay put or roam the world.
Analog KVM switches are often confined to
one specific location. They are usually set up with
dedicated cabling from the KVM workstation to
the servers and equipment and often have distance
limitations imposed by the cable. Analog KVM
systems are limited in the number of user ports
and are more difficult to expand.
Because digital switches work over IP, they
give you the freedom to control servers over large
networks with multiple locations. This also gives
your network managers the ability to manage
devices easily, no matter where they are.
Common KVM switch features
• Platform — The type of computer platform
a KVM switch can handle. In addition to PCs,
KVM products can be linked to Sun ®, Mac,
SGI ™, RS/6000 ®, HP9000 ™, and others.
• Number of ports — The number of
computers you can connect directly to a single KVM switch.
• Cascading/scalability — Many advanced
KVM switches support the cascading of units
to increase the number of computers to more
than 1000. Control via IP is also possible with
newer models.
• Maximum resolution — A measure of the
video bandwidth supported by a KVM switch.
If you use graphics- or video-intensive
applications, the higher the resolution support,
the better.
• Additional features — Emulation, distance to keyboard/monitor/ mouse and computer,
on-screen menus, and number of users.

KVM Buyer’s Guide
Before You Buy
Questions to ask before you buy a KVM switching system
Before you choose a KVM switching solution,
you need to consider some important issues. Any
time you have questions or need help contact
Black Box’s FREE, live, 24/7 Tech Support.
What type of connection does the
controlling keyboard, video display,
and mouse have?
Depending on whether they are PS/2®, USB,
or some combination of both, your connections
determine what type of cabling you need.
If you are using USB devices, like keyboards
and mice, make sure to purchase a KVM switch
with USB support. Older KVMs usually only
support PS/2® connections, but Black Box has
KVM switches that support both USB and PS/2,
as well as USB-only models.
Do your CPUs require keyboard or
keyboard and mouse emulation?
Keyboard emulation and keyboard and
mouse emulation (see our Glossary on the facing
page) are enhanced features of most KVM
switches. They enable each CPU to communicate
with the switch as if it were directly attached to
the controlling keyboard or mouse.
What operating system (OS) software do
your computers use?
Are all your computers running the same OS?
Or, like many organizations, do you have multiple
CPUs running different OSs? With the right KVM
switch, interconnecting multiple CPUs running
different OSs is easy. Black Box offers several
multiplatform KVM switches.

How close are your users to your servers?
If servers and users are physically close to
each other, an analog KVM system will meet your
needs. On the other hand, if users require access
from remote locations because they travel or if an
IT manager needs to manage a distant data center,
a KVM over IP (KVMoIP) system is going to be the
best fit for your organization.
How many ports do you need? What will
your future needs be?
It is advisable to purchase a KVM switch with
more ports than you currently need. This way,
when you expand your server room or add users,
you do not need to completely replace a small
KVM switch with a larger one with more ports.
Also, although many KVM switches are cascadable, a KVMoIP system simplifies configuration,
usually requiring the addition of IP addresses
and updating the authentication database.
KVMoIP makes adding servers fast and free
of complications.
What are your security needs?
Network security must never be compromised,
yet authorized personnel need access. KVM
switches use a combination of user authentication,
an operating system’s internal security, and Secure
Socket Layer (SSL) encryption — among other
security features — to ensure that users receive
access to those devices to which they are allowed.

KVM Buyer’s Guide
KVM Glossary
Glossary of KVM terms
Bandwidth — The capacity of a device to carry
high-frequency signals through it. A device with
higher bandwidth will pass clearer and higher
resolution video. The horizontal resolution multiplied
by the vertical resolution multiplied by the frame rate
gives the approximate frequency of the pixel clock.
The bandwidth of the video is one half of the pixel
clock.
Boot — The start-up sequence of a computer.
During this time, the computer attempts to detect
the keyboard-video-mouse. A KVM switch should
emulate the KVM signals so the computer boots
up normally.
Bus Expansion — A method of interconnecting
KVM switches with multiple video buses, which go
to all switches. Any switch can connect a computer
to a video bus output or can connect a video bus
input to a user port. Each switch has a dedicated
input bus port and output bus port. The bus output
of one switch is connected to the bus input of the
next switch.
Cascading — A method of interconnecting KVM
switches by connecting the computer port of several
other KVM switches.
CAT5 — Category 5 UTP cable is usually used
for connecting LANs. It is comprised of two to four
twisted pairs of copper wire terminated by RJ-45
connectors. ServSwitch KVM extenders use this
cabling to carry video and data up to 1000 feet.
Converters — Devices that convert KVM signals
from one type of platform to KVM signals for another
type of platform, for example from PC to Sun®.
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) — A highperformance interface between a computer and
a display device that uses transition-minimized
differential signaling (TMDS) for improved video
signal accuracy. DVI-D is a digital-only connector;
DVI-I integrates both digital and analog connections.
Emulation — The intelligence in a switch that
imitates (emulates) signals that enable a computer
to think it is attached directly to a keyboard-videomouse. (See Boot.)
Ethernet — A local area network (LAN)
developed by Xerox®, Digital Equipment Corp., and
Intel®, and now recognized as the industry standard.
Ethernet connects up to 1024 nodes at 10 MHz,
100 MHz, or 1-Gigabit speeds, over UTP, coax, and
fiber optic cable.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia
Interface) — This is the first digital interface to
combine uncompressed high-definition video,
multichannel audio, and intelligent format and
command data in a single cable. Use to connect
audio/video equipment over a single cable. Supports
standard, enhanced, and high-definition video. Has
a bandwidth of up to 5 Gigabytes so it supports all
HDTV standards and has bandwidth to spare for
future applications.
Flash Memory — A memory chip that holds its
content without power but must be erased in fixed
blocks rather than in single bytes. Flash memory
provides a way to change or upgrade product
functionality by sending data to change its internal
firmware.
IP (Internet Protocol) — The protocol used in
gateways to connect networks at the OSI Network
Level (Layer 3) and above. IP routes a message across
networks.
Keyboard Mode — A standard PS/2® keyboard
can operate in Mode 1, Mode 2, or Mode 3. Mode 2
is used by the majority of PCs. Mode 1 was formerly
used by IBM® but is now obsolete; Mode 3 is
common for UNIX® workstations.
KVM — Stands for keyboard, video, mouse.
May refer to physical KVM or to the corresponding
computer ports.
KVM Extenders — Enable you to increase the
distance between the KVM and CPU or the KVM
and the switch. KVM extenders convert KVM signals
to travel over CATx UTP or single- or multimode fiber
optic cable. Distances range from 75 feet (CAT5 UTP)
to up to 6.2 miles (fiber optic single-mode).
KVM Sharing — Access to a single computer
by more than one user. Access can be controlled by
keyboard command or by timer.
KVM Switches — Connects one or more
keyboard, monitor, and mouse sets to two or more
CPUs. Users can switch via front-panel switches or
keyboard commands.
Multiplatform — Able to run more than one
type of operating system.
Non-blocking Access — A user on a matrix
switch that can connect to any computer without
restriction; this user has exclusive use of the video bus.
On-Screen Display (OSD) — For a KVM switch,
an OSD enables users to configure and control the
switch using a visual computer interface, and displays
information regarding which computer is currently
connected.
Platform — Operating system. Platforms include
PC, Sun, Apple® (Mac®), and UNIX workstations.
Port — A physical interface on a device, which
goes to a connector.
PS/2 — The keyboard and mouse standard by
IBM that was the industry standard on most PCs
and UNIX workstations. PS/2 keyboards and mice
have 6-pin mini DIN connectors.
Resolution — Number of pixels displayed
horizontally and verically on a video monitor; value
determines the sharpness of the image.
Scan Rate — The time interval that a KVM
switch takes to switch between ports. Usually a
programmable value (15 seconds, 30 seconds),
and can be enabled or disabled.
Server Access Module (SAM) — Dongle-type
device that connects CATx cable to KVM interface
connectors.
Single-User — A KVM switch with only one
point of KVM access to attached CPUs or servers.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) — Serial 4-wire bus
architecture for peripheral I/O ports, that autosenses
up to 127 peripherals at a distance of 5 meters (16.4
ft.). Version 1.1 supports 1.5- and 12-Mbps data rates.
Version 2.0 is backward compatible with Version 1.1
speeds and also supports 480-Mbps data rates.
User — A KVM workstation attached to a KVM
switch; it receives video and sends keyboard and
mouse information. Can also refer to the port on the
KVM switch or the person accessing the workstation.

Black Box Explains
The Types of KVM Connections.
Native: Standard cables that connect a keyboard, monitor, and mouse to a CPU, usually a VGA,
6-pin DIN, or a DVI/USB cable. Connect by unplugging the keyboard, mouse, and monitor from the CPU
and reconnect them to the KVM switch. Plug additionally purchased cables from switch into the CPUs.
Integrated all-in-one cable: A high-density connector (e.g. DB25, DB15) is present on the KVM
switch. The all-in-one cable breaks out into multi-pronged keyboard, monitor, and mouse connections.
All ports are connected with this specialty cable.
Server Access Module (SAM): Use CAT5 or CATx cable between the KVM switch and the server
location, and use a SAM for connections. A SAM is a modular adaptor with video, keyboard, and mouse
connectors for VGA, PS/2, DVI, or USB that plugs into CPUs or servers. These are ideal in high-density
applications such as a server room, or other places where space is at a premium.

KVM Solution Profile
Listen up
A leading radio broadcaster needed to find
a way for their disk jockeys to be able to access
their individual show schedules and playlists.
Each user required individual access to particular
servers, but as he or she could be in a different
studio each day, setting up this access was
proving challenging.
The solution was the ServSwitch Octet, which
was installed using the broadcaster’s existing
CAT5 cabling infrastructure. Users could enter
any studio and log onto the Octet system using
their unique usernames and passwords. Once
logged in, they could see only the servers they
were authorized to use. The Octet system,
besides providing security through the existing
LDAP infrastructure, reports to the SNMP
management platform with all changes and
updates. It also provided the SNMP manager
with the option of remotely connecting users
to the servers, increasing security even more.

The ServSwitch Wizard™ IP from Black Box®
enables you to remotely access an attached
ServSwitch and all servers connected to it from
anywhere in the world via an IP network or a
dialup connection. No special software is needed.
Full server control.
The ServSwitch Wizard IP only requires a
keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (KVM)
connection to your servers and doesn’t need
special software to be loaded on the controlled
servers. Unlike software-only remote access
solutions, the ServSwitch Wizard IP provides
full control—even during computer bootup.
The ServSwitch Wizard IP has a power control
port that enables a remote user to reset one or
more power switches in the host system. You can
reboot the host remotely no matter how much it
has locked up!
Plus audio, video, and USB connections.
With the Plus version, you get all the features
of the Wizard IP but with a faster (533-MHz)
processor and better video performance, making
it ideal for high-end server rooms. Additionally,
the Virtual Media feature enables you to remotely
make files available to any host computer linked
to the Wizard IP Plus.
The Plus has USB, DVI-I, and audio connectors
for streaming data and sound to a remote
virtual network collaborator (VNC). The console
connectors include PS/2 and USB ports for a
keyboard and mouse, an audio jack for plugging
in speakers, and a DVI-I port that autosenses
between digital and analog video connections.
The DVI-I port converts an analog input signal
into a DVI signal to give you much clearer video
displays. There’s also an audio jack for “audioover-IP” applications so you can feed audio
signals from a host site to remote VNC viewers.

ACR2004A: top: front view;

Connect the Wizard IP (above) to just about any other ServSwitch product as well
as IBM compatible, Sun, or Mac servers. The updated firmware enables you to use
either a PC or Mac computer to view connected servers from a remote location.
The Wizard IP and IP Plus are also rackmountable.
Black Box Explains
IP Access Technology.
IP access technology leverages the existing network infrastructure and supports local and
remote users. KVM over IP works in diverse hardware environments and is ideal for managing
multilocation data centers and branch offices.
ServSwitch IP access solutions, such as the ServReach KVMoIP System or the ServSwitch Wizard
IP, enable you to remotely access and manage servers or ServSwitches connected to servers — from anywhere in the world — via an IP network. Ultimately, KVMoIP is about convenience,
cost-savings, and control — even out-of-band access to servers and network devices.
By addressing network issues from a remote location, you can save yourself the hassle of traveling
to a site in the middle of the night, or simply manage issues from your desk. Use a browser-based
connection, even a cell phone or PDA, to reboot or administer a roomful of servers remotely.
Cost-savings are realized through reduced downtime and less travel. Additionally, no software
needs to be installed — simply launch a browser.
You have complete 24/7 control over your servers from any location. React to problems immediately
and prevent server room disasters. Security need not be a concern; the ServSwitch IP access
solutions are password-protected, with robust encryption and authentication features.
KVMoIP means less downtime, fewer service calls, and cost-savings for your organization.

ServView V
Use this rackmountable, dual-rail, 1U console drawer
when space is at a premium.
Left: ServView V with LCD panel open and keyboard
and mouse tray drawer open. Right: ServView V with
LCD panel open and keyboard and mouse tray closed.
Above: Front panel KVM switch selection
buttons enable switching between servers
with only the LCD panel open.
• Dual-rail console drawer features keyboard, touch pad, and LCD monitor in 1U.
• Flip-open 17" LCD panel supports resolutions up to 1280 x 1024.
• Keyboard and LCD display slide in and out independently, enabling the monitor
to remain visible while keyboard is stored.
• USB port, for USB 2.0 peripherals, on front panel remains accessible with keyboard
and mouse tray closed.
• Access the ServView V and server using a wireless keyboard and a BlueTooth®
installed in the front-panel USB port.
• KVM switch function module connects to VGA, and either PS/2® or USB servers.
• Cascade the console with other KVM switch modules to increase server
management capacity.

The ServView V offers server management
in a space-saving, streamlined package. The tray
includes a keyboard touch pad, a 17" TFT LCD
panel, and an optional KVM switching module
housed in an industry-standard 19" 1U rack
drawer, saving you valuable cabinet space.
The dual-rail design enables the keyboard
and LCD display to slide in and out of the rack
independently of each other. Store the keyboard
out of the way while keeping the display open so
you can easily monitor your servers. Check system
status even with the cabinet door closed.
Easy in-and-out
The sturdy, slim drawer helps reduce server room
clutter. Pull it out and latch it securely in place to use.
Or fold your display into the drawer, slide it into the
rack, and lock it in place. The ServView V also
includes a scratch-resistant surface and a slip-free
handle. Installation is easy, too.
Easy to use
The drawer console features a full 105-key,
low-profile keyboard. It also supports Sun and
Mac® keyboard mapping.
The touch pad has simulated wheel control
and is dust- and waterproof. Both the keyboard
and the touch pad are replaceable.
Easy to order
Choose from 1-, 8-, or 16-port KVM switching
modules. The single-port model includes all the
cables you need; you will need to order cables
with the 8- and 16-port models’ USB or PS/2
connections.

KVM Solution Profile
Cleaning Up
A large medical center had an urgent need for
its surgeons and practitioners to be able to view
high-resolution images of x-rays, photographs,
and medical charts from its servers, plus conform
to HIPAA regulation — all while maintaining a
sterile environment. Power supply fans inside
PCs or servers suck in air to cool down the
processor, which makes them unsuitable for
such an environment because germs and dust
can easily gather. Constantly cleaning the various
nooks and crannies of PCs and servers isn’t
practical in a surgical setting.
Black Box Network Services provided the
solution with the ServSwitch DTX. The DTX
enables the placement of servers in a secure
environment while extending the keyboard,
monitor, and mouse into operating, x-ray,
36
and consulting rooms. Cleanliness of the
keyboards, displays, and mice was not an issue
as they were medical standard equipment that
could be directly disinfected.
