What is KVM Switch ? Why you need one ?
KVM switches are used to connect users to their computers. There are many types of switches to meet a wide variety of customer needs, but choosing the best kvm switches can be a challenge. Here are the major questions to consider:
- How many users and computers are there?
- What are the distances between the users and the computers?
- What type of cabling (or network) will connect the users and computers?
- Any special needs such as 4K video, high performance KVM or protecting classified information?
What type of KVM Switch you need ?
If you want point-to-point access to a single computer, then look into KVM Extension.
If you have a few computers in close proximity, then a Desktop Switch may be right for you.
If you have a smaller server room or rack within close proximity to the users, then look into a KVM Matrix Switch.
KVM-over-IP Switches provide flexible, local and multi-user IP access of 8 to 64 computers, that scales to thousands of computers.
For 4K, broadcast, video or dynamic applications consider a high performance KVM switch.
