Matrox announces new 10Gbps KVM extension and switching solution
Matrox Graphics says Matrox Avio KVM extenders are compatible with APCON IntellaPatch Series 3000 XE network switches, supporting 10 Gbps and forming the world's highest-bandwidth KVM extension and switching solution.
With this new digital matrix switch solution, enterprises will benefit from superior performance through 10Gbps link connectivity, says Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics. Cabling complexity and cost is also minimized due to single-cable-per-desktop configurations and leading switch-to-desktop density, she adds.
Avio takes advantage of the full bandwidth available in 10Gbps SFP+ transceivers to transmit two uncompressed HD video signals, USB keyboard and mouse, USB 2.0 devices, and stereo analog audio over a single fiber-optic duplex LC-LC cable. Once each workstation is connected to its own port on the IntellaPatch XE switch, administrators can use the APCON software interface to route a workstation or server to a remote location. The combined Matrox-APCON solution allows enterprises to take advantage of 10Gb throughput, with significant capacity to support up to 143 desktops per chassis from a remote user location, according to Injoyan.
The IntellaPatch Series 3000 Extended Capacity (XE) network switch is a high capacity network monitoring aggregation switch that supports connections up to 40 Gbps, including the 10Gbps connection rate supporting the Avio solution. It's also managed through APCON's leading and intuitive management system, WebX. For more information on compatible switch blades and chassis options, go to http://tinyurl.com/c8gh7tu .
