The Raritan MCIP18 is a MasterConsole IP for up to 8 servers.  MasterConsole IP is a fully-featured, easy-to-use KVM switch for the small to mid-sized business. Providing BIOS-level control of up to 8 or 16 servers from one keyboard, monitor and mouse, it also brings the convenience, flexibility and security of remote access down to SMB scale. Most important, it accomplishes this with Raritan's high-performance KVM-over-IP technology.

Raritan MCIP18 is a MasterConsole IP includes the same bulletproof security features as Raritan's enterprise-class remote access products, including up to 256-bit SSL encryption, certificate management, configurable TCP/IP port numbers and user access rights. With access strictly secured, off-site administrators can respond to incidents around the clock, from across town or around the world.

Raritan MCIP18 MasterConsole Features:

  • 1U Form Factor:  Only 1U in height for the MCIP18 (1x18); extremely rack-efficient.
  • Advanced Video Resolution Detection Hardware:  Ensures a fast, accurate and clear transition when the user switches to a new video source.
  • Video resolution 1600 x 1200 at 75Hz:  Supports the highest PC video resolution in KVM industry
  • Automatically calibrates and adjusts the displaying window to the screen resolution of the remote computer:  Saves manual calibration and adjustment.
  • Remote Network Access/KVM over IP:  Users can access the MCIP18/MCIP18 from anywhere on the network (LAN, WAN, Ethernet, Telnet) to troubleshoot, reconfigure and even reboot servers remotely.
  • Ethernet: 10/100 BaseT with auto-sensing (RJ-45), LEDs for link, 10/100 MB and activity, which allows users to monitor remote access connectivity and network traffic.
  • Up to 256 bit SSL v3, TLS v1 encryption of console data:  Prevents against packet sniffing attacks between client and server, either outside, via the Internet or even inside the LAN.
  • Storage for up to 200 user profiles - with individual rights: Provides granular security policies and administrative flexibility.
  • Certification management:  The MCIP18/MCIP18 server side certificates prevent a man-in-the-middle attack, in which the attacker pretends to be the server and transparently forwards data.  Also prevents an attacker from hijacking connections via IP spoofing.
  • Ports can be labeled with device names:  Allows easier selection from the on-screen menu.
  • Single user access rights can be limited to individual KVM Ports: Ensures that each local or remote user may only access "his" or "her" servers.
  • Event logging:  Helps avoid internal misuse by recording the steps taken by every user.
  • Remote Management:  Allows remote administrators to perform all management and changes from the convenience of their desktops.
  • On-line firmware update capability:  MCIP18 firmware updates can be downloaded directly from the Raritan Website and performed over the network.

Question: Do you have a Raritan that does the same as this one but has 24 ports? I need PS/2 and USB combo on top of that...Thanks

Unfortunately no, there is not a Raritan switch just like this one in 24 ports. They have actually discontinued the MasterConsole series and replaced it with their new KVM over IP line. They have a few versions, but for 24 ports we would have to get into a 32 port solution (they go from 8-16-32 ports). The 32 port KVM can be seen here: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/dkx2-132.html.

If you would like to give us a call to discuss your particular project, we would be happy to get you into the best KVM over IP for your needs. 1-877-586-6654
