Additional Information Simple deployment - Dominion KX interconnects with each server via standard, economical Cat5 (UTP) cabling. Servers may be located as far as 50 cable feet from the Dominion KX unit. A sophisticated, new product look featuring an ergonomic design and new blue LED indicators for clear easy-to-see power, network activity, and user activity. New smaller form-factor CIMs that enable firmware via the network and allow cabling distances of up to 50 feet. Employs Raritan's next generation IP technology with the addition of advanced video resolution detection hardware. When a user switches between servers, this system ensures that the transition to a new video source will be fast, accurate, and clear. Users can connect up to 16 or 32 servers to each switch in a 1U form factor and via Cat5 cabling. Includes Raritan's award-winning video compression circuitry from IP-Reach, the industry's highest-performing KVM Over IP technology, to provide remote network access to connected servers. Users can access Dominion KX from anywhere on the network (LAN or WAN [Internet]), allowing them to troubleshoot, reconfigure, and even reboot servers remotely. Features local ports for connecting a KVM console at the rack itself. From this console, Dominion KX behaves like a traditional KVM switch, allowing a user to select among 16 or 32 servers and control them as if directly connected to the servers' KVM ports. Provides PS/2 and USB ports for additional flexibility, so users may use the latest USB keyboards. Provides high-availability with dual Ethernet ports for redundancy. Should one Ethernet switch or interface card fail, Dominion KX can still remain available. Allows users to connect Raritan power strips and enables control over these power units in a single, seamless interface. Thus, in an emergency, a system administrator can not only troubleshoot a server remotely, but also even reboot that server using the same interface. Users can access Dominion KX with a standard web browser; this eliminates the need to install proprietary client software to access Dominion KX. Dominion KX is a completely self-contained system, i.e. an "appliance". All its features, including authentication and web-access, are built into the box and do not require a separate server to function. Improves upon previous Raritan KVM Over IP technology with the introduction of 15-bit color support (32,000 colors), enabling higher video quality over the network. KVM-Over-IP technology allows users to configure video performance to match available bandwidth. When accessing over a LAN (a local network), more bandwidth is available and hence more video information can be sent - resulting in better performance. When accessing via dial-up modem, very little bandwidth is available, and Dominion KX can adapt to provide fast response (but less video information). Integrates with industry-standard directory servers, via either RADIUS or LDAP protocols. Allows Dominion KX to integrate with pre-existing usernames/password database for security. Remote Administrators can perform all management and configuration changes at the convenience of their desktop. Syslog integration allows Dominion KX's logging capabilities to be centralized in one syslog server (a standard event logging system). SNMP integration allows Dominion KX to be monitored with an industry-standard SNMP tool such as HP OpenView. Complete integration with Raritan's CommandCenter, allowing enterprise users to consolidate all Dominion devices into a single logical system, with a single IP address, and a single management interface.
