The KH1516i allows one user to control 16 computer - PC and/or Sun, as well as serial controlled 'terminal' ports. That user can be local or remote, using an integrated, shared IP connection. Through daisy chain architecture, additional non-IP enabled switches such as the KH1508 or KH1516 can be used to expand the number of computers controlled; custom ASIC (patent pending) auto senses the switch positioning the daisy chain. Cat5 cabling to the computers reduces cable bulk and allows the computers to be located up to 130 feet from the switch for convenient placement. These models are exceptionally affordable IP-enabled Cat5 equipped switches with high video quality, excellent security, and the features most in demand.
