Linkskey (Prima series) IP-based KVM switch is a powerful combination of IP-based Management device and KVM switch. The Linkskey IP-based KVM switch features remote management of multiple systems via network or internet (KVM Over IP).
The Linkskey LKV-9208IP (Prima IP 8) is a 8-port IP-based KVM Switch with single-port KVM Link Extender over IP. In addition to the traditional local console, it provides a remote access over the LAN/Internet IP network. It is functionally versatile, robust and ultra-secure. It supports full 1024-bit PKI authentication, 256-bit SSL data encryption, LDAP, RADIUS as well Active Directory authentication and RADIUS accounting.
The IP-based KVM Switch with multi-port capacity has been regarded as a reliable solution today. It has been used to address the critical issue of server rack management with admin’s ready access anytime anywhere. Prima IP 8 is designed with a view to offer a cost-effective yet full-featured functionality under these scenarios.
The Prima IP 8 gives users total control over its total 8 server ports, from preboot stage such as the BIOS-level CMOS setting up to the GUI applications and daily maintenance routines such as power cycling (power control unit required). And all these could be nicely done either on local console or using a thin-client software viewer on any computer. All you need for accessing your computer remotely is to login, download the viewer, and get yourself connected to a whole bunch of servers in seconds.
The Prima IP 8 is fully Web-enabled to allow software upgrade and configuration upload/backup over the Web Management Interface. All you need to do is upload the files from its Web Management Interface, and restart it to work with latest functionalities within minutes and can be performed across oceans by an SUPERADMIN remotely.
With Prima IP 8, the server administrator can access enterprise server room or data center on his own seat without toils and troubles of going anywhere from across the street to oversea. Organizations can enjoy a centralized and cost-effective control over its dispersed servers in different branch offices around the world, saving money for outsourcing costs.
In addition to keyboard hotkeys and front-panel buttons, Prima IP 8 also provides OSD Menu for intuitive KVM switching operations. Its cascadable feature can upscale the server number to 120 by using PRIMA-4, PRIMA-8 or PRIMA-16 units. Both USB and PS/2 interface support on PC side offers maximum convenience in a computing environment that accommodates both newer USB-enabled computers and older computers with only PS/2 interfaces.
The Prima IP 8 not only provides remote user access, it also plays the role of KVM management. It manages the software version of all KVM switches connected in the daisy-chain, and upgrades automatically any KVM switches whose software is not the latest. It displays the KVM error and information messages into its server log. It permits to setup remotely the name of computers that are displayed in the OSD, and the local user name and password.
