KVM over IP Switches
Aten’s new generation of KVM over IP switches - KN series allows local and
remote operators the ability to monitor and access their entire data center over
the network using a web-based browser. In addition, they offer out-of-band
access oms and data centers from practically anywhere – minimizing travel costs
and MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) – and ensuring the highest availability of data
center services possible.
To help you manage and control an entire data center, our KVM over IP switches
support blade servers and chassis. With powerful new features such as Power
Association– KVM ports can be associated with ATEN PDU power outlets for
power management of servers from the KVM over IP switches’ user interface.
KVM over IP switches now support the new Control Center Video Session
Recorder (CCVSR) software. The CCVSR records all operations made on servers
accessed through KVM over IP switches. Every operation and change from the
BIOS level to logging in, from running software applications to configuring
the operating system- is recorded and saved to a secure video file as evidence,
without exception.

KN4132v
With dual on-board NICs and dual power supplies, the KVM over IP switches
are built for reliability, to ensure 24/7 availability of remote access to all server
room computers. The switch´s design features Green IT solutions that include
four temperature sensors to regulate up to six fans – run at optimum speeds –
throttling down and speeding up depending on room temperature, reducing
data center operational costs through a more efficient way of maintaining
energy.
With Aten KVM over IP switches IT administrators can manage their server
rooms and data centers from practically anywhere – minimizing travel costs and
MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) – ensuring the highest availability of data center
services possible.

Benefits
3
Power Association
Used in conjunction with ATEN/ALTUSEN PDUs power management device, you can
associate a KVM over IP 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 efficiency.
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
easily.
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.
Local Console , browser-based and AP GUIs offer a unified multilanguage interface to
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
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 32 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
Speed
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.
