Raritan Extends Reach of Remote Server Management with New KVM Product

Posted on November 26, 2018

SOMERSET, NJ (November 21, 2018)Raritan® — a brand of Legrand, and a leading provider of intelligent data center management and rack power distribution solutions — today added a new solution, the Cat5 Reach DVI HD KVM Extender, to its portfolio to extend up to 3,300 feet the reach of KVM management to servers, PCs, and other devices. The extended access-and-control capabilities provide more flexibility and boost productivity.

The solution includes a transmitter and receiver pair for use with a Cat5 cable.  By plugging a keyboard, video, and mouse into the Raritan Extender receiver, IT administrators can place the user console anywhere from 330 to 3,300 feet away from the target server or device to be managed.  IT administrators, for example, can use the Extender to access equipment in a nearby control room or an area adjacent to a data center. 

The Extender’s remote access-and-control capabilities also help minimize risk by enabling users to store PCs, servers, and KVM switches in secure, non-harsh environments, as well as eliminate physical trips to equipment rooms.

Like other Raritan offerings, the KVM Extender delivers high quality HD video resolution for a great user experience.  With 1080p HD video-quality resolution, it is almost impossible to differentiate whether you are working in front of a server or in another location away from the server rack. The Extender also provides superior 1920x1200@60Hz and 1080p@60fps (frames per second). video quality.

“Our KVM solutions are designed to help IT teams manage more — servers, devices, locations, technology platforms — manage more efficiently, and do it securely and from anywhere it is convenient,” says Raritan Director Richard Dominach.  “It’s a huge productivity boost for IT administrators.”
