Minicom Unveils New Line of Multi -User, Remote Access KVM Switches

The new remote access KVM switches enable one local and two remote system administrators secure BIOS level access and control of up to 16 or 32 servers. Two additional remote users can also operate serial sessions for controlling serial devices.

Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading developer of KVM switch and extension technology, is launching two new multi -user, remote access KVM switches for IT managers of server rooms and data centers - the Smart 216 IP and the Smart 232 IP. The new products enable one local and two remote system administrators secure BIOS level access and control of up to 16 or 32 servers. Two additional remote users can also operate serial sessions for controlling serial devices such as routers, managed network switches or PDU's. Like all Smart line KVM switches, the 216 IP and 232 IP offer seamless integration into Minicom's centralized management system for remote IT - KVM.net ® II.


"These new products help round out Minicom's KVM line and position it as a major player in mid to high range server room and data center environments," says Minicom's Vice -President of Marketing Eran Kessel.

The Smart 216 IP and Smart 232 IP are rack -mountable, 1U sized switches that feature Minicom KVM over CAT5 technology that directly connects the switch to each server in the room, eliminating cable clutter and providing up to 30m/100ft of distance between server and switch. They also have built -in web servers enabling two remote users seamless access to target servers via a single IP address.

"The versatile, high -performance Smart 216 IP and Smart 232 IP provide solutions for many of the challenges facing distributed server rooms and data centers," says KVM Product Manager Benny Hayumi.

Protected access is guaranteed via industry standard security protocols. Minicom utilizes the advanced 128 -bit SSL protocol to guard your corporate data through every kind of remote access device. This technology efficiently prevents unauthorized access and security breaches.
