STRATUS MCS
Multiple Client Station
Multiple PCs and Remote
Controlled KVM Fully
Integrated to Deliver
Security, Convenience
and Power Savings
Inspired by the frustration enterprises face in deploying multiple
PCs per worker, NCS developed the modular STRATUS MCS
multiple client station. It dramatically reduces the technology infrastructure footprint for each worker. With the remote control of our
secure KVM, system control and status awareness take a great
stride forward. Yet each PC within the STRATUS MCS maintains
complete autonomy in terms of CPU performance and network
access. The STRATUS MCS is the first product to successfully
combine security, convenience, comfort and going green into one
solution to serve enterprise knowledge workers who must operate
multiple PCs to do their work. No more compromising for the sake
of security!
Benefits for Users
FEATURES
BENEFITS
Improved Ergonomics
Compact Footprint
• Three PCs and KVM forming a stack as small as a conventional minitower
Ease of Use
• First ever secure KVM operable with a remote control
Advanced Cooling
• Improved air flow and thermal design
• More free space for your desk
• Selecting a PC on the KVM is as convenient and easy as clicking a mouse
• Less heat and noise in your office
KVM Switching
4-to-1 KVM Switch
• Up to 4 PCs can share the same keyboard, video display, and mouse. One
of the PCs can be located up to 36 inches away from the stack of the other three
• Cost savings achieved since there is no need to purchase a separate KVM
switch or multiple sets of keyboards, mice, and displays
• A CAC card reader can be assigned to a specific PC
• Full KVM benefits without having to worry about the CAC card reader attached to a PC for which it is not intended
• Internally routed cables
• No cable mess behind your desk
Convenience
Remote Control
• Control of the infrastructure at your fingertips
• No longer need to reach to the edge of your desk to press a KVM button–increased comfort and efficiency for greater productivity
• Full system & KVM selection status readily available through LCD window
and LED indicators
• Improved visibility to system operation and selected domain for enhanced
awareness
• Large buttons for KVM and power switching
• Easy and intuitive operation for improved efficiency
• Power control
• No more reaching for the power button on each PC sitting below your desk. Power to each individual PC can be turned ON/OFF conveniently from the
Remote Control
• Programmable LED colors for the switch buttons
• The button associated with each computer attached to the KVM can be assigned a different LED color for easy distinction on the Remote Control
Benefits for Enterprises
FEATURES
BENEFITS
Network
Optional LAN Switch
• 4-port full-function Ethernet switch
• One LAN connection supporting up to 4 PCs
Power Optimization
One Common Power Supply
• Sufficient capacity to power 3 fully configured PCs
• Higher efficiency, superior heat dissipation and quieter operation
• Modular structural design
• Better internal cable organization for improved air flow
Rapid Start
• A PC can enter power saving mode as soon as KVM switches away from
it and wake up as soon as the KVM switches to it
• Unprecedented power saving – three PCs consume the same amount of
power as one traditional desktop computer
Flexibility
Small and Large Computer Modules
• Two housing sizes
Discrete Power Supply
• Each individual PC can have its own power supply
• Choices for different system configurations and expansion options
• High-performance workstation-class video card supported in the large module
• No single point of failure for mission critical applications
Physical Separation
• Support for a remote PC that can be located up to thirty six inches away
Security
Designed to NIAP Peripheral Sharing Switch Protection Profile (PP_PSSHID_V2.1) (Certification Pending))
• Secure switching – no cross over
• Switching with ease of mind – completely secure and certified
• Remote control permanently mated with KVM
• No mismatch of Remote Control to KVM possible to provide another level
of protection for system integrity
• Active intrusion detection as a standard feature of the KVM module
• Permanently disable KVM if intrusion is detected to prevent tampering with
internal components
• Padlock option available for each module
• Physical security can be easily implemented and maintained
