The USB 2.0 Virtual Media SIP (Server Interface Pod) with CAC (Common Access Card) from Dell support is a high-resolution USB2-based SIP that supports Virtual Media (VM) and smart cards/CAC. It provides full speed (12 Mbps) throughput that allows the administrator to remotely install/patch software, saving valuable time. In addition, the USB2/VM/CAC SIP also enables the multi-factor authentication required in secure environments. Like all Dell SIPs, it converts the keyboard, monitor, and mouse signals from a server and drives them through a single CAT5 cable, eliminating the typical KVM cable management headaches. The USB2/VM/CAC SIP draws its power from the server and has a 'Keep Alive' capability that is designed to keep your server working properly with or without connectivity to the KVM switch.
