Digital KVM Switches Are Quite Popular-Analog KVM Switches Still Deserve Respect

Digital keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) switches can be less costly as they rely on existing infrastructure and don’t have circuitry for network conversion. Analog switches cost less per port and are better suited to graphically intense environments. Either type allows increased computer density because relatively few monitors, keyboards, and mouses are needed and because consoles can be outside the data center. Find out more.

VoIP Introduction

VoIP uses internet protocol data packets to transfer voice, fax, and other data over the shared network, rather than the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN), which is based on copper wires carrying analog voice data over the dedicated circuits. VoIP, in contrast to PSTN, uses what is called packet-switched telephony, whereby the voice information travels to its destination in individual network packets across the Internet that are assembled and then converted to voice. Learn the basics of VoIP by reading this white paper, which includes explanations of coding and protocol for VoIP, and a look at quality and myths about VoIP.

Why Network Administrators Should Explore the “V” in KVM Switches

For data center administrators responsible for monitoring the screens of hundreds—and potentially thousands—of servers and PCs, video resolution is paramount for efficiency. A keyboard/video/mouse (KVM) switch can help by enabling IT staff to manage servers and other network devices, within the data center or remotely. Get a technical glimpse into the “whys” behind the “V” in KVM and the importance of video resolution.

Using Keyboard, Video, and Mouse over IP to Connect Remote Networks

Today’s IT professionals are often challenged by unrelenting changes in the enterprise, increased data growth and compliance regulations, and geographic distribution of assets, to name a few. Keyboard/video/mouse (KVM) over Internet protocol (IP) can help by providing an effective tool that can remotely manage servers—regardless of their physical location. When looking for a KVM over IP solution, you should consider some basic requirements first.
