NEW USB KVM Switch from NTI Flawlessly Controls SUN USB Computers!
New 2 Port USB KVM Switch to be introduced at CEBIT features compact chassis!

HANNOVER, GERMANY: Network Technologies Inc (NTI) today announced that the testing center at Sun Microsystems has verified the compatibility of their new Universal USB KVM switches with Sun USB-enabled computers. The KEEMUX-USBV-nU controls up to 32 USB-enabled computers with one USB keyboard, USB mouse and VGA monitor. Users can boot all attached computers in one operation, thanks to NTI's patented USB electronic autoboot technology. (Other USB KVM switches require individual, sequential boot-up.) This switch supports any USB-enhanced computer, including the following:

  • SUN Blade 100s, 1000s, SUN Rays and Sun Fire 280R™s. SUN extra keys are emulated on USB keyboards with Windows keyboard layouts.
  • PCs with USB ports.
  • MAC G3/G4s. Supports Mac soft (keyboard) power-on capability.

Raghav Mehta, sales engineer at NTI, reports that "Our USB KVM switches are unique in flawlessly supporting SUN USB computers and control by USB peripherals. This switch delivers both superior performance and value." Mr. Mehta will be demonstrating this switch at the CEBIT trade show (Hall 16, Stand B22, Booth #F8) in Hannover, Germany, March 13-21, 2002.
