The Dominion KX2-216 is a KVM over IP switch with 16 KVM ports, 2 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.
