NetCom: 1U Rackmount 17" LCD & Keyboard w/ CAT5 KVM

The revolutionary integration of a CAT5 KVM switch with a rack manager console provides the cleanest server control at the rack. The 1U unit eliminates the need for bulky KVM cables. CAT5 KVM technology allows increased ventilation in the rack and greater flexibility in cable lengths. Servers can be up to 10m/33ft from the switch, which allows the management of servers on neighboring racks, reducing the cost of ownership and connection to the servers are done via a CAM (Computer Access Module).

The 16 port KVM switch is fully integrated with the 1U rack drawer, saving you valuable rack space. The built-in, KVM switch allows you to connect up to 16 servers to the NetCom, with support for multiple platforms (PS/2, SUN, USB).
