      All-in-One Network Management for Critical Systems

      The B020-U08-19-IP offers a complete network management solution. It combines an 8-port KVM switch, keyboard, touchpad, numeric keypad, 19in. LCD and built-in IP remote access capability in a compact housing that stores neatly in a 1U rack drawer and pulls out when needed. No server-resident software is required, so server performance and reliability are never compromised. An external USB port, conveniently located on the front of the keyboard panel, enables an optional external mouse to be connected. The B020-U08-19-IP is flash firmware upgradable (firmware upgrade cable included) to ensure compatibility with emerging standards.  

      Supports Multiple Platforms

      The B020-U08-19-IP supports both PS/2 and USB connections (two Tripp Lite P778-006 combo KVM cable kits included). Because compatibility is based on common hardware standards rather than system software dependencies, almost any platform can be accommodated. Connect multiple versions of multiple platforms in any combination, including Windows®, Mac®, UNIX®, Linux and DOS operating systems.

      Simple, Flexible Network Control

      The B020-U08-19-IP is designed to ease multi-server management in data centers, server rooms and other high-density environments. BIOS-level access allows network administrators to solve complex problems efficiently and restore service before downtime affects productivity. An advanced on screen display (OSD) with high-resolution VGA video up to 1280 x 1024 provides a graphical user interface with management tools including custom port labeling, auto-scanning and panel array mode. Users may also select a connected computer using on-console pushbuttons or keyboard hotkey commands. Two LEDs per KVM port indicate (1) when a computer is connected to a KVM port and powered on, and (2) when a computer is selected.

      Access Servers Anywhere with Built-In IP Remote Access Capability

      The B020-U08-19-IP provides secure IP remote access to connected servers/computers via LAN, WAN or Internet without requiring additional rack space. IP remote access enables system administration, BIOS-level troubleshooting, GUI application installations, equipment reboots and more to be accomplished from any location using a standard Web browser or multi-platform client software. Dual bus support permits simultaneous access for one local and one remote user. The LCD incorporates a grayscale option to improve transfer speed in low bandwidth situations. With an external USB 1.1 port, peripheral devices like flash drives and card readers can be shared on the network.

      Secure Every Connection

      The B020-U08-19-IP offers three levels of password protection (administrator/user/select) to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to connected servers/computers. IP remote access is further protected with security features including password protection, advanced encryption, bandwidth-optimized video and detailed activity logging. Up to 64 user accounts can be created. A message board feature allows logged-in users to communicate with one other and manage port access. 

      Control Multiple Servers

      The B020-U08-19-IP is capable of controlling up to 504 servers/computers by daisy-chaining additional KVMs (Tripp Lite model B022-U16). This gives network managers the flexibility to add capacity when it's needed, accommodating growing data center requirements without disrupting existing equipment.

      Additional KVM Accessories (Sold Separately)

      To connect servers/computers to the KVM: one P778-Series PS/2+USB combo KVM cable kit per server/computer is required (two cable kits included; see below). To daisy-chain from the B020-U08-19-IP: additional B022-U16 KVM switches and cable kits; consult the owner's manual for detailed information about daisy-chain configurations.

      1-Year Product Warranty

      The B020-U08-19-IP is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite's commitment to environmental responsibility. For peace of mind, it comes backed by a one-year warranty.
