KVM switch technology was first introduced to the market in the 1990’s as a method of controlling multiple computers with a single keyboard, video and mouse. A few years later, KVM extenders were introduced to enable the relocation of critical computing hardware away from the user environment and into a secure server room. This is still at the core of many KVM installations, as buyers seek to keep the heat and noise of servers out of the TV studio, create more space on the trading floor, or maximize data security in nuclear power plants or military bases. But with customers seeking ever increasing flexibility, Adder has led the way in the development of KVM matrix solutions that connect many users to many computers.
Traditional KVM uses proprietary switches to create direct-connections between the “endpoints” (i.e. the various data sources and user workstations). While direct-connect solutions are extremely popular and offer a great combination of features, function and reliability, they often lack the key functions and flexibility required by customers in a fast-paced world where change is inevitable. IP-based solutions provide significantly more flexibility at a lower total cost of ownership. With over 10 years of experience in the design and development of IP KVM solutions, Adder’s products offer world-class levels of performance, resilience and security.
KVM technology is being used by organizations across many industries, to ignite efficiency and improve collaboration. From the dynamic media and entertainment industry to the innovative realms of healthcare, finance, education, manufacturing, and transportation, KVM's adaptability remains unparalleled.
