Tripp Lite Introduces New
32-Port, 8-User Matrix KVM Switch for Large Enterprise Applications
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL (April 18, 2008)–Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity equipment, has added a new product to its KVM Switch line: the NetDirector 32-Port, 8-User Matrix 1U Rackmount KVM Switch (Model B060-032-8).
The B060-032-8 KVM Switch enables up to eight users to independently and simultaneously control 32 directly connected computers/servers. By daisy chaining or cascading additional KVMs, control can be extended to over 8,000 additional computers/servers. The B060-032-8 also features an innovative Web-based Administrator Utility for enhanced management and control of users and port settings. Three-level password security–Super Administrator, Administrator, and User–provides an exceptional level of flexibility, with up to 1,024 individual user accounts and 256 group accounts accommodated. The B060-032-8 KVM Switch also simplifies cable management in complex enterprise-level applications. It utilizes inexpensive Cat5 cabling that permits connections between consoles, switches and servers over distances of up to 500 ft.
Compatibility with PS/2 or USB consoles and servers is provided by Console Interface Modules (Models B062-002-PS2 and B062-002-USB) and Server Interface Modules (Models B054-001-PS2 and B054-001-USB). The B060-032-8 KVM Switch features plug-and-play setup with no software required. Hot-pluggable capability permits computers to be added or removed from the system without powering down the KVM Switch or other computers. Preprogrammed hot keys and On-Screen Display (OSD) menus simplify port selection. The KVM’s firmware can easily be upgraded via a flash-upgradeable firmware port.
“Our new 32-Port Matrix KVM Switch offers a cost-effective, state-of-the-art control solution for large enterprise networks,” said David Posner, Tripp Lite Director of Product Marketing for Connectivity Products. “Not only is the B060-032-8 capable of controlling thousands of computers or servers via additional daisy-chained or cascaded KVMs, its Administrator Utility greatly simplifies the task of managing port settings and user accounts. For example, Super Administrators have the ability to monitor individual users and end their sessions if necessary. For enterprise-level applications, this KVM Switch provides the highest level of control available.”
