An optional IP remote access unit (Tripp Lite model B051-000, sold separately) enables servers/computers to be controlled from any location via LAN, WAN or Internet. The B070-008-19 comes with a 1-year product warranty.

Simple, Flexible Network Control The B070-008-19 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. 2 LEDs per KVM port indicate when a computer is connected to a KVM port and powered on and when a computer is selected.
Control Multiple Computers The B070-008-19 is capable of controlling up to 128 servers/computers by cascading additional Tripp Lite B072-series KVM switches (Tripp Lite B072-series, sold separately). This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment.
Access Servers Anywhere with IP Remote Access Capability The B070-008-19 accepts an optional IP remote access unit (Tripp Lite model B051-000, sold separately) that provides secure IP remote access to connected servers/computers without requiring additional rack space. IP remote access enables system administration, BIOS-level troubleshooting, GUI application installations, equipment reboots and more to be accomplished from any location using a standard Web browser or multi-platform client software.
Secure Every Connection The B070-008-19 offers 2 levels of password protection (administrator/user) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers.
