The USB ServerSwitch is an active microprocessor controlled switch for USB-based computers. Each USB ServerSwitch switches USB Keyboard, Mouse and Video signals between eight Servers and two users. Multiple USB ServerSwitches can be cascaded so that two users can control up to 64 computers. Users may interact with the attached computer using their USB keyboard and mouse and their monitor as if they were directly connected to the CPUs. Keyboard emulation is provided at all times for attached CPUs, eliminating interruptions that may occur when a server detects a missing keyboard, or USB renumeration. Also, the keyboard status LEDs for each server port are stored by the ServerSwitch so that the user's keyboard instantly assumes the correct status configuration when a user switches to the server port. The attached servers provide power for each server port's USB emulation, so the USB status is maintained regardless of the power state of the USB ServerSwitch. Rack mounted servers are quickly becoming the standard in the server world. The USB ServerSwitch can be mounted in the same 19-inch rack as the connected CPUs, reducing the space required to administer multiple servers. The backlit two-line front panel display and pushbuttons allow the system administrators to easily switch between attached servers. On-screen configuration is simple using the user's monitor and keyboard. Device names can be shown on-screen when switching between servers to help the user manage multiple systems with simple commands.
