Cutting the Cord: IP KVM Switches Allow Remote Hardware Access From Any Location
A company's servers and other gear can number in the dozens, hundreds or even thousands. Offering a central point of control, Keyboard/Video/Mouse (KVM) switches can play a key role in helping IT administrators manage hardware and software. Unlike Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) or other remote-access software, KVM switches don't require the operating system or network to be available. What's more, they're hardware agnostic. And they allow Basic Input/Output System (BIOS)-level management, ideal for high-density server rooms and data centers.
