Control As Many As 16 Computers or Servers from Anywhere in the World
This NetDirector® Cat5 KVM switch offers BIOS-level access to multiple computers and servers in a complex, demanding IT environment. The B064-016-01-IPG provides complete control of up to 16 computers and/or servers directly, including blade servers, from a single monitor, USB keyboard and USB mouse. Dual redundant power supplies confirm the unit will continue running in the event one power supply fails, ensuring 24/7 reliability. A Laptop USB Console (LUC) port allows direct connection of a laptop for easy console operation of the KVM switch.
All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems
The B064-016-01-IPG offers a comprehensive, cost-effective network management solution that installs in 1U of space in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack using the included hardware. No server-resident software is required, so server performance and reliability are never compromised. Flash-upgradable firmware over an Ethernet network fine-tunes compatibility with emerging standards.
Supports All Major Operating Systems and Most Web Browsers
The B064-016-01-IPG supports all major server platforms and VT100-based serial devices. Because compatibility is based on common hardware standards, rather than system software dependencies, almost any platform can be accommodated. Supported web browsers for users who log in remotely include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Safari, Opera and Netscape Navigator.
Simple Network Control That Gives You More Flexibility
This Cat5 KVM switch is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. Built-in IP capability allows up to two users—one local and one remote—to access the network independently and simultaneously. An optional dial-in connection (modem port) is provided to ensure access in situations when the KVM switch is not available over the primary network. You may also select a connected computer using on-console pushbuttons, GUI (graphical user interface), OSD (on-screen display) or keyboard hotkey commands. An LED per KVM port indicates when a computer is connected to the port, when it is powered on and when it is selected.
High-Resolution On-Screen Display Offers Multi-Language Support
The advanced OSD with high-resolution video up to 1920 x 1200 (at 60 Hz) with 24-bit color depth provides a GUI with management tools, including custom port labeling, auto-scanning and panel array mode. The OSD may be set to display in English, German, Russian, Japanese, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese.
Allows Connection of Either PS/2 or USB Keyboard and Mouse
PS/2 and USB console ports are included. Only one keyboard/mouse combination may be connected at a time.
Supports Both IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses
The B064-016-01-IPG supports IPv4, Link Local IPv6 Address and IPv6 Stateless Autoconfiguration protocols. You may set the IP address manually or have it automatically assigned via DHCP server (the default method).
Heightened Security of Every Connection
The B064-016-01-IPG offers three levels of password protection (super administrator, administrator and user) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers. Remote authentication support is provided via RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS and Active Directory. The B064-016-01-IPG also incorporates advanced encryption technologies: 1024-bit RSA, 56-bit DES, 256-bit AES and 128-bit SSL. It also supports high-grade FIPS 140-2 level 1 security standards.
Network-Wide Storage Media Access
Virtual Media capability allows any computer connected to the KVM via a B055-001-USB-V2, B055-001-UDP, B055-001-UDV or B055-001-UHD server interface unit to access DVD/CD drives, flash drives and other storage media from a remote computer, as if it were directly connected. This allows administrators to perform file transfers, install software and perform diagnostics across a network. Three USB ports are provided on the front panel for use with Virtual Media or USB peripheral devices.
Energy-Efficient Operation Prolongs the KVM’s Lifespan
Temperature sensors automatically increase or decrease the speed of the unit's fans as necessary to ensure efficient cooling. This decreases the amount of energy consumed, while prolonging the life of the fans and KVM switch.
Free Management Software Included
Free NetDirector-AXS management software is available for accessing and controlling the B064-016-01-IPG. From a single interface, you can remotely access server ports and manage KVM settings. You can install this software from the included CD or download it at
TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases
The B064-016-01-IPG is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which makes it eligible for GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule and other federal procurement contracts.
