8-Port switch with fingerprint access control

ATEN International : 26 February, 2009  (New Product)
ATEN International unveils KVMP Switch with biometric fingerprint recognition for secure access control
8-Port switch with fingerprint access control
With the CL5708, 8-Port PS/2-USB LCD KVMP Switch and the 16-port version CL5716, ATEN International presents the world's first LCD KVM switch to feature optional fingerprint recognition. In addition to enhanced data centre security, the CL5708 and CL5716 provide the latest in KVM switch technology with extreme scalability, compatibility, user-friendliness and a cutting-edge design.

A single CL5708 or CL5716 Slideaway LCD KVMP (P meaning peripheral) Switch with two consoles (one bus) can control eight or 16 servers. By daisy-chaining as many as 31 additional KVM switches, up to 512 servers can be controlled from a single KVM console. For added security, the optional fingerprint identification system can be used to control access to the CL5708 / CL5716, and all devices under its command. For this feature, an administrator and up to four user accounts can use any one of the recorded fingerprints to log in.

'The fingerprint reader feature in our new CL5708 and CL5716 adds security and user-friendliness to the server management. The administrator can choose to use either the recorded fingerprint or a password to access the KVM switch. The fingerprint is an alternative, more personalized means for logging into the switch, and complements the security features of the device in an excellent way,' says Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International.

As the CL5708 / CL5716 provides dual interface functionality with auto PS/2 and USB interface detection, it seamlessly supports computers and console with PS/2 or USB keyboards and mice. An additional USB port located under the LCD panel will connect peripheral devices (e.g. flash drive, CD-ROM drive) which can be used to install software, OS patches, or make system backups to computers connected to the installation. In addition, a hot-pluggable USB mouse port is provided for users who prefer to use an external mouse.

The CL5708 / CL5716 offers a space-saving, streamlined approach to KVM switch technology by integrating a 17-inch or 19-inch high-resolution LCD monitor (resolution of up to 1280 x 1024 @ 75 Hz), a full keyboard and a touchpad in a 1U rack-mountable sliding housing. With high flexibility design, the LCD monitor can rotates up to 115 degrees for a comfortable viewing angle.

For installation, the CL5708 / CL5716 does not require any software, and servers can be added or removed without having to power down the switch. As professional solution for multiplatform environments, the switch supports all major operating systems (Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux, Mac, and Sun).

Other Highlights of the CL5708 / CL5716 include:

* Keyboard and mouse emulation (PS/2 and USB) for smooth switching and simultaneous booting of multiple computers even when the console focus is elsewhere
* Convenient computer selection via front panel pushbuttons, hotkeys and OSD menu
* Auto-senses its position on daisy-chained installations; front panel LEDs indicate the position of the units
* Port names automatically reconfigured when station sequence is changed
* Auto Scan mode enables continuous monitoring of user-selected computers
* Broadcast support allows commands to be broadcast to all computers on the installation
* Firmware upgrades to all chained KVM switches at the same time via daisy-chain cable
