Features

Control Your KVM Switch or Server from Anywhere in the World
Recommended for high-density IT applications like data centers, server rooms and network closets, this IP access device adds IP functionality to a KVM switch or server that is not equipped with built-in IP capabilities. It allows you full BIOS-level control of your connected device via LAN, WAN or internet, and includes an SNMP protocol for tracking critical events, such as user logins and system reboots. Instead of being tied to your server room, you can work from another office, a remote location or even your living room.
All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems
The B051-000 uses TCP/IP as its communication protocol. This allows you to remotely access attached KVM switches and servers to perform tasks with ease and speed, such as installing and running GUI applications, BIOS-level troubleshooting, routine monitoring, system maintenance, system administration and rebooting. A Laptop USB Console (LUC) port allows direct connection of a laptop for easy console operation of the unit. An RS-232 serial port permits out-of-band and low-bandwidth modem and serial terminal connections. The auto-sensing RJ45 LAN port supports 10/100/1000 Mbps data transmission speeds.
Network-Wide Storage Media Access
Virtual Media capability allows the B051-000 to access DVD/CD drives, flash drives, Smart Card/CAC readers and other storage media from a remote computer, as if it were directly connected.
Heightened Security of Every Connection
The B051-000 offers password protection, advanced encryption technologies, sophisticated user filters and user management and automatic lockout to make sure remote access is secure. Remote authentication support is provided via RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS and Active Directory. For added security, 1024-bit RSA, 56-bit DES, 256-bit AED and 128-bit SSL advanced security encryptions are used to prevent any breaches.
High-Resolution On-Screen Display
With a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (@ 60 Hz) and 24-bit color depth support for remote sessions, the B051-000 provides premium display quality. You won’t miss a detail, even when physically separated hundreds or thousands of miles away from your network. The remote session can be viewed in either full-screen or an adjustable window mode for multitasking and higher productivity.
Supports All Major Operating Systems and Browsers
The B051-000 supports all major operating systems and web browsers. You can connect it to all Tripp Lite and most third-party KVM switches, making it the ideal add-on device to preserve existing investments in aging IT devices.
Convenient and Flexible Mounting Options
This IP remote access unit includes hardware for 0U vertical mounting in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack or mounting on a DIN rail.
TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases
The B051-000 is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases.
