The Avocent AMX™ analog KVM switching solution provides simultaneous, real-time user access to all major server platforms and serial devices.

By connecting two Avocent AMX™ matrix switches to your desktop user station for switch redundancy with automatic failover, you can maintain access to your mission-critical servers and serial devices.

Alternately, you can access your local computer and an Avocent AMX™ matrix switch with the desktop user station for efficient, real-time use and management of connected servers and serial devices.

The Avocent AMX™ analog KVM switching system features full-system management with an advanced, Java-based administration tool, optimal video resolution and an on-screen graphical interface.

The Avocent AMX™ switch can operate over your existing UTP cable infrastructure and optional skew compensation ensures video quality is automatically adapted to cable type and length.

Features and Benefits

User

    • Full Bandwidth and Real-Time Access to Servers - Facilitates access to multiple servers and applications where full bandwidth video quality is critical
    • Easy-to-Use OSCAR - Graphical User Interface - No training required for immediate user interaction with target computers
    • Multi-Platform Support - PS/2, USB, Sun and SGI servers and VT100 serial-based devices
    • Specialized Application Support - The AMX 5010 switch is a proven choice for test labs, demo labs, design and broadcast environments; AMX switches are compatible with all major broadcast devices including Pinnacle Deko, Harris Device Manager and Raid arrays

Performance

  • Automatic Compensation for Any Video Losses Induced by Cabling - Simplifies the installation of equipment and guarantees highest quality video for each user without any user intervention
  • Dual Matrix Support - Connect user station to two AMX KVM switches for switch redundancy with automatic failover for mission-critical reliability

Flexibility

  • Out-of-Band Access to Computers - You can access all cascaded computers without needing to access the corporate network
  • End-to-End UTP Cable, Including CAT-5, 5e and 6 - Eliminates bulky cabling connections and delivers real-time, high bandwidth video up to 1,000 feet from the server

Management

  • Consolidates the Local Ports of KVM over IP Products - You have backup access to servers independent of the IP network
  • Consolidates Access to Existing Analog KVM Switches - You can integrate legacy KVM switches into your matrix KVM solution
  • AMWorks - Java-Based System Administration Tool - Centralized management is easier with this versatile software
  • AMIQ Server Interface Module - Built-in memory eases configuration and installation by assigning and retaining unique server identification codes for each attached server
  • Includes SNMP Traps - You can set up SNMP traps in the AMX switch for report alarms to an external logging destination
  • Event Logs - AMWorks software maintains a record of all user logins and switching activity
  • Scalable Architecture - AMX switches easily accommodate additional servers and users in growing network infrastructures

Security

  • Integration with Other LDAP Services for Authentication - You can use a single LDAP database for authentication, minimizing the administration overhead of your existing network authentication process
