Tripp Lite's B020-U08-19-IP NetDirector 8-Port Rackmount Console KVM Switch is the smart solution for controlling multiple servers in IT applications. It combines a keyboard, touchpad, 19-in. color LCD and 8-port KVM switch in a 1U rack drawer for compact storage and easy access without compromising control over connected servers. The heavy-duty enclosure, high-quality LCD, premium connectors and uncomplicated controls ensure trouble-free operation in demanding high-availability environments. The B020-U08-19-IP can control eight servers/computers directly, or up to 504 by daisy-chaining additional KVMs. It is compatible with both PS/2 and USB computers using Tripp Lite P778-series combo KVM cable kits (two 6-ft. cable kits included). Built-in IP access capability enables servers/computers to be controlled from any location via LAN, WAN or Internet.
All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems The B020-U08-19-IP offers a complete network management solution. It combines an 8-port KVM switch, keyboard, touch pad, numeric keypad, 19-in. LCD and built-in IP remote access capability in a compact housing that stores neatly in a 1U rack drawer and pulls out when needed. No server-resident software is required, so server performance and reliability are never compromised. An external USB port, conveniently located on the front of the keyboard panel, enables an optional external mouse to be connected. The B020-U08-19-IP is flash firmware upgradable (firmware upgrade cable included) to ensure compatibility with emerging standards.
Supports Multiple Platforms The B020-U08-19-IP supports both PS/2 and USB connections (two Tripp Lite P778-006 combo KVM cable kits included). Because compatibility is based on common hardware standards rather than system software dependencies, almost any platform can be accommodated. Connect multiple versions of multiple platforms in any combination, including Windows®, Mac®, UNIX®, Linux and DOS operating systems.
Simple, Flexible Network Control The B020-U08-19-IP is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. BIOS-level access allows network administrators to solve complex problems efficiently and restore service before downtime affects productivity. An advanced on screen display (OSD) with high-resolution VGA video up to 1280 x 1024 provides a graphical user interface with management tools including custom port labeling, auto-scanning and panel array mode. Users may also select a connected computer using on-console pushbuttons or keyboard hotkey commands. Two LEDs per KVM port indicate (1) when a computer is connected to a KVM port and powered on, and (2) when a computer is selected.
Control Multiple Servers The B020-U08-19-IP is capable of controlling up to 504 servers/computers by daisy-chaining additional KVMs (Tripp Lite model B022-U16). This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment.
