The B020-U08-19-IP Console KVM Switch with built-in IP access allows secure access to multiple computers from a single KVM (keyboard, monitor and mouse) console. A single B020-U08-19-IP can control up to 8 connected computers. By daisy-chaining up to 31 B022-U16 KVM switches, the number of connected computers can be expanded to 504. It consists of an integrated 19" LCD monitor, keyboard and touch pad in a 1U rackmountable, retractable sliding housing. The B020-U08-19-IP features IP-based connectivity that allows one local operator and one remote operator to simultaneously monitor and access the computers attached to the console. Because it uses TCP/IP for its communications protocol, the B020-008-17-IP can be accessed from any computer on the LAN, WAN or Internet whether that computer is located down the hall, down the street, or halfway around the world.
