Why IP?

The Benefits of IP: Standard Protocols

Adder Technology’s ADDERLink® INFINITY® high-performance IP-based KVM solutions make use of standard IP protocols such as IGMP, STP, and DHCP, ensuring maximum compatibility with existing IT infrastructure and staff skillset, enabling IT organisations to manage and maintain Adder KVM products as part of the IT infrastructure.

Flexible and Scalable

A system constructed around ADDERLink INFINITY is easy to expand – as slowly or as rapidly as required  It can scale from single building implementations with a small number of users up to an infrastructure spanning thousands of kilometres with thousands of users. ADDERLink INFINITY can grow as you grow.

A key advantage is the expansion can be split into phases enabling effective budget management. ADDERLink INFINITY can adapt its function to meet your needs. It can start as extenders then turn it into a switchable matrix as the needs change Resulting in greater return on investment and no waste.

Secure

ADDERLink INFINITY has built-in security features to ensure that both local and remote access to the host computer or KVM switch can be obtained in confidence across the most hostile environments.

Certified with TLS, HTTPs, LDAP and RFID, ADDERLink INFINITY complies with universal security standards.

INFINITY uses proprietary video codec and security measures to restrict and log access through layers of identification, profiles and permissions set by the system admin, In addition there are automatic barriers triggered by misuse, such as screen lock, temporarily locking a user name if there have recently been repeated failed attempts to login.

Resilient

All complex IT systems has several single points of failure which, if triggered, can interrupt the operation of the infrastructure and have serious consequences on the business.

ADDERlink INFINITY minimizes those risks to ensure that data availability and power consistency are constantly maintained.

Those measures have been built in to Adder’s Enterprise matrix solution to guarantee uninterrupted operation and guard against both soft and hard failure.

Video Performance

ADDERLink INFINITY products are equipped with a proprietary video codec suite (AFZ) developed by Adder to deliver the very best picture available. The encoding systems enable pixel perfect video that is spatially lossless, with 1:1 pixel mapping, so the digital video you receive is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer. In addition, if required, the user can choose to compress video in order to optimise network bandwidth usage and maximize the user experience.

 “The entire infrastructure of the facility is based on the IP-based ADDERLink INFINITY KVM solution. We did investigate other vendors, both IP-based and traditional KVM, but the major selling point for the Adder solution was able to support the 2560x1600 monitor resolution required in some of our suites at the refresh rate required.” Adam Peat, Head of Engineering, The Farm Group.

Networking

ADDERLink INFINITY provides new levels of flexibility in the distribution of high performance computing power. High resolution DVI video, audio, R232 serial and four USB streams are transferred through a single run of network cable over your standard IP network. In order to eliminate weak links and maximise throughput, it is important to ensure that the network is structured and configured accordingly. For further advice on switches, please contact us.

ADDERLink INFINITY 100T

The ADDERLink INFINITY 100T (ALIF100T) is a Zero U, high performance, IP-based KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) transmitter that enables the use of standard IT infrastructure to extend computers away from the user environment.

ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (A.I.M.)

Part of the ADDERLink® INFINITY® range, the ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (A.I.M.) enables the user to centrally coordinate and manage the transmitter and receiver units, and facilitate remote user access to host computers. Using the A.I.M., an administrator can configure user access rights, gather a full audit trail all through an intuitive, multilingual user interface.
