KVM Applications and System Design Beyond the Data Center

High-Performance KVM

A KVM switch (with KVM being an abbreviation for "keyboard, video and mouse") is a hardware device that allows a user to control multiple Computers from one or more Keyboard, Video and Mouse

Modern digital extension and switching technology emphasizes the movement from  analog to digital video, and also away from fixed-user-to-computer KVM switching toward nearly freely scalable matrices (matrix switching). 

These new proprietary (using CATx or Fiber optic cables) and IP-based digital technologies offer real-time solutions — no delay, no skew. Along with extending digital video, these applications extend keyboard and mouse, digital or analog audio, serial, and USB.

Additionally, the designs that apply to the technologies outlined provide a quieter workplace and remove excess heat from the area by placing computers in low-dust, climate-controlled equipment rooms without sacrificing video quality, picture resolution, or real-time switching of peripherals
server maintenance, software updates, and network administration become centralized, plus time and cost associated with support is reduced.

Once considered a technology only for the data center, KVM solutions have advanced and expanded significantly over the years such that applications for KVM are now almost endless. This presentation covers applications for KVM technology, from desktop switching to advanced, high-performance matrix switching systems, with an emphasis on case studies that identify the best solutions for specific scenarios. In this webinar, you’ll:

  • acquire a high-level understanding of the KVM technology solutions spectrum.
  • Understand the thought process behind selecting a KVM technology for a specific application scenario.
  • Understand the return-on-investment benefits that KVM solutions can provide.
