The Dominion KX2-116 is a KVM over IP switch with 16 KVM ports, 1 remote user ports and 1 local user port for connection at a server rack.  The Raritan Dominion KX II family of KVM switches are enterprise, secure KVM-over-IP switches which provide remote BIOS-level control.  Raritan's Universal Virtual Media (standard on all models) lets administrators perform tasks such as installing software, transferring files and backing up data.  These IP switches also feature Raritan's Virtual KVM Desktop.  This feature allows users to scale a target server's display to any size, from thumbnails to full screen video. 

The Dominion KX II consists of the KVM over IP switch and Computer Interface Modules (CIMs).  Each CIM connects to the server's KVM ports and converts video signals for transmission of up to 150 feet over UTP (Cat5/5e/6) cabling.

Note: The D2CIM-VUSB CIM is required for Virtual Media.

Question: can you link this kvm to a KX432 kvm? To daisychain them so they both work on the same KVM in the same rack?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.
According to Raritan, yes, the DKX2 KVMs can be cascaded. "To physically connect multiple KX II devices together for consolidated local access, you can connect the local ports of multiple "tiered" (or "cascaded") KX II switches to a "base" KX II using the "tiering" feature of the KX II."

More information about the cascading aspect of the DKX2 switches can be found on the FAQ tab of this page http://www.raritan.com/products/kvm-over-ip/dominion-kx-ii/, under the "Local Port Consolidation, Tiering and Cascading" heading.

Question: Do you have a product similar to DKX2-116 that supports resolution higher than 1600x1200? One of my customers need support for 1920x1080 over IP.
Answer: Look no further! The DKX2-116 will support the 1920x1080 resolution you require. The Dominion KX II is the first and only KVM-over-IP switch to support full High Definition (HD) remote video resolution - 1920x1080. To reach this resolution, it does require a specialized dongle however. The D2CIM-DVUSB series are required to accomplish this:
