The Aten KE6910 2K DVI-D Dual Link KVM over IP Extender solution consists of a high performance IP-based transmitter (KE6910T) that connects to the computer and receiver (KE6910R) that provides console access from a separate location. The KE6910 allows access to a computer system from a remote USB console (USB keyboard, USB mouse, DVI monitor) over an intranet, enabling users to locate computers in a secure and temperature controlled environment, which is isolated from users' workstation. The KE6910 supports one DVI display at each end, providing video resolutions up to 2560 x 2048 @ 50Hz and flawless and lossless video compression quality with minimal latency. The extender also supports 2K x 2K video resolution (2048 x 2048 @ 60Hz), which is used widely in the Air Traffic Control (ATC) industry.

The KE6910 supports connections via an RJ-45 port or a SFP slot. The transmitter and receiver can be connected either directly to each other or via a high-speed network, over a copper-based or fiber-based LAN, ensuring 24/7 availability of remote access to servers. To connect via the SFP slot, the extender supports 1Gbps SFP fiber module* expansions, enabling connections via fiber optic network to extend transmission distances up to 10km. The KE6910 also provides dual power supplies for redundancy.

The KE6910 can be set on a desk, mounted on a wall or at the rear of a rack with its space-saving 0U rack-mount design. As an IP-based matrix extender, the KE6910 can be used as a point-to-point / point-to-multipoint / multipoint-to-point extender, or integrated into a KVM over IP Matrix System (multipoint-to-multipoint) when combined with the KE Matrix Management Software (CCKM), providing more flexible applications in different working environments.

Whether you're monitoring, operating, controlling or extending computer access, the KVM over IP Matrix System is made adaptable, to fit an endless variety of working environments and workstation settings, to provide solutions in traffic management centers, retail surveillance centers, facility situation rooms, command control centers, utilities process control centers, broadcasting distribution monitoring systems, network operations centers (NOC), and many other industries where matrix extending is required.

*The SFP module (2A-136G / 2A-137G) is sold separately.

Aten KE6910 Use Cases

Extender mode (One-to-One)

This is the simplest setup; using a single transmitter to receiver connection that extends a computer's distance from the keyboard, mouse and monitor. One-to-one setups can be directly connected by a Cat 5e/6 cable between two units - up to 100 meters (KE89xx & KE99xx models can also be optionally connected via optical fiber cables for distances up to 10 kilometers).

You can also manage point-to-point connections, set up over a LAN with no distance limitations, by assigning each device an IP address.
