The KN1000 is a control unit that provides remote BIOS-level access to servers or "over-IP" capability to KVM switches that do not have built in over-IP functionality. It allows operators to monitor and access their computers from remote locations using a standard Internet browser or Windows/Java based application programs, for BIOS-level troubleshooting without the need for constant on site IT maintenance. In addition, the KN1000 offers out-of-band access - including external modem support.
To help you manage and control multiple widely distributed servers efficiently from a remote console, a built-in single-port Power Switch allows remote power management of a server/installation connected locally to the KN1000, including turning servers On, Off and Rebooting. In addition, you can also add a PON (Power Over the NET) power management unit to manage the power status of even more devices.
