Raritan's 1U LCD KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch is ideal for secure rack management. It offers the convenience of using standard UTP cabling to connect to servers directly, while an optional second user is able to access servers from outside the server room up to 650 feet (195m) away. TMCAT17 provides two ways to connect to servers. If the servers are all at the rack, you can use Raritan's MCUTP cable, the most up-to-date cable available from Raritan's mature Cat5 technology. For longer distance connections, you can use Cat5 cables and CIMs (Computer Interface Modules) to connect to servers up to 150 feet (45m) away. TMCAT17 is also multiplatform compliant, compatible with Windows®, Linux, Mac and Sun servers.
