The Avocent AutoView AV2108 is a Cat5 KVM appliance which supports a single local user to manage up to 8 server or serial devices. Each AutoView switch provides Virtual Media and CAC support via four USB 2.0 ports. When additional systems are added, AutoView switches can be tiered to provide consolidated management of up to 256 server or serial devices.
The Avocent AutoView KVM switch ships with two intuitive, integrated management interfaces. The OSCAR on-screen display for local access and the Web User Interface provides remote management for switches that have been upgraded to 1 remote KVM over IP user with the Remote Access Key option (RAK-Key). All remote-enabled AutoView KVM switches are compatible with Avocent DSView management software for consolidated management across the infrastructure.
