CS1708 i /CS1716 i
8/16-Port PS/2-USB KVM over IP Switch
With 1 Local/Remote User Access
The CS1708i and CS1716i KVM switches are IP-based KVM control units that allow both local and remote
operators to monitor and access multiple computers. Remote users access the switches over the Internet by
means of a web browser using TCP/IP for its remote communications protocol. The CS1708i and CS1716i
support up to 32 concurrent user logins for single-bus computer access. A built-in feature that resembles an
Internet chat program – the Message Board – lets them communicate with each other. The ability to exchange
information in real time allows them to cooperatively manage the installation in a smooth and efficient manner.
Among the CS1708i and CS1716i's other outstanding features, a Panel Array Mode provides the ability
to simultaneously monitor up to 16 servers per switch; while the Mouse DynaSync™ feature automatically
synchronizes the local and remote mouse pointer movements for perfect alignment regardless of what the
mouse acceleration settings on the server are.
The CS1708i/ CS1716i supports the highest security protocols, such as 128 bit SSL encryption for the browser,
and RC4 128 bit encryption for secure keyboard, mouse, and video data transmission . For easier and more
efficient user management integration, the CS1708i/ CS1716i also support authentication and authorization via
remote servers, such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and MS Active Directory.
These powerful features not only help administrators manage their server room in an efficient and flexible
manner, they provide a cost effective management solution for the SMB sector.
