Replaced by: ATEN CS1716
Alternative options: Contact Us

The CS1716i-TAA Trade Agreements Act compliant KVM switch is an IP-based KVM switch that allows both local and remote operators to monitor and access multiple computers. Remote users access the switch over the Internet by means of a web browser using TCP/IP for its remote communications protocol. The CS1716i-TAA supports up to 32 concurrent user logins for single-bus computer access. A built-in feature, that resembles an Internet chat program - the Message Board, lets remote useres communicate with each other. The ability to exchange information in real time allows the users to cooperatively manage the installation in a smooth and efficient manner.

Among the CS1716i-TAA other outstanding features, a Panel Array Mode provides the ability to simultaneously monitor up to 16 servers per switch; while the Mouse DynaSync™ feature automatically synchronizes the local and remote mouse pointer movements for perfect alignment regardless of what the mouse acceleration settings on the server are.

The CS1716i-TAA supports the highest security protocols, such as 128 bit SSL encryption for the browser, and RC4 128 bit encryption for secure keyboard, mouse, and video data transmission. For easier and more efficient user management integration, the CS1716i-TAA also supports authentication and authorization via remote servers, such as RADIUS, LDAP, LDAPS, and MS Active Directory.

These powerful features not only help administrators manage their server room in an efficient and flexible manner, they provide a cost effective management solution for the SMB sector.
