There is not an exact replacement, as the AV424 was a 24 port switch. However the replacement unit for an analog solution would be the AV2015-001.
https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/av2015-001.html That is a 16 port switch, so you would need two if there were 24 target devices.
Cabling - AVRIQ-USB or AVRIQ-PS2 for each port, depending on the keyboard/mouse connection.
Also, the AV2015 does not have an extender built into the switch. If you need to extend the console away from the KVM switch up to 1000 ft, you would also need the Longview Extender. LV1000U-001
