The Aten CS1716I 16-Port PS/2-USB KVM Over IP Switch is an IP-based KVM control unit that allows both local and remote operators to monitor and access multiple computers. Remote users access the switches over the Internet by means of a web browser using TCP/IP for its remote communications protocol. The CS1716I supports up to 32 concurrent user logins for single-bus computer access. A built-in message board feature lets you communicate with each other. The ability to exchange information in real time allows you to cooperatively manage the installation in a smooth and efficient manner.
Its panel array mode provides the ability to simultaneously monitor up to 16 servers per switch, while the mouse DynaSync feature automatically synchronizes the local and remote mouse pointer movements for perfect alignment regardless of what the mouse acceleration settings on the server are. The CS1716I supports 128 bit SSL encryption for the browser and RC4 128 bit encryption for secure keyboard, mouse, and video data transmission. The CS1716I also supports authentication and authorization via remote servers, such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and MS Active Directory.
