Matrox Announces World's Highest-Bandwidth, 10Gbps KVM Extension and Switching Solution
Combining Matrox Avio KVM extenders and APCON network switch forms KVM matrix solution with unparalleled signal capability and desktop connectivity capacity
MONTREAL/WILSONVILLE, Ore. – April 2, 2013 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Matrox Avio™ KVM extenders are compatible with APCON IntellaPatch® Series 3000 XE network switches, supporting 10 Gbps and forming the world's highest-bandwidth KVM extension and switching solution. With this new digital matrix switch solution, enterprises will benefit from superior performance through 10Gbps link connectivity. Cabling complexity and cost is also minimized due to single-cable-per-desktop configurations and leading switch-to-desktop density.
Avio takes advantage of the full bandwidth available in 10Gbps SFP+ transceivers to transmit two uncompressed HD video signals, USB keyboard and mouse, USB 2.0 devices, and stereo analog audio over a single fiber-optic duplex LC-LC cable. Once each workstation is connected to its own port on the IntellaPatch XE switch, administrators can use the APCON software interface to easily route a workstation or server to a remote location. The combined Matrox-APCON solution allows enterprises to take advantage of 10Gb throughput, with significant capacity to support up to 143 desktops per chassis from a remote user location.
"With a 10Gbps fiber-optic infrastructure, Avio extends a broad-range of signals over large distances, maintaining system performance and allowing the centralization of systems without compromising user experience," said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "Avio's compatibility with IntellaPatch Series 3000 switches is key to allowing users to easily address all their switching, distance, security, and safety requirements."
Avio F120 and F125 KVM extenders let users run remote desktops without compromising graphics performance through the uncompressed, high-bandwidth transmission of digital content. Consisting of a transmitter at the workstation and a receiver at the remote user location, Avio extends a desktop with its keyboard, mouse, and peripherals by up to 4 km (2.5 mi). System background noise is consequently eliminated in the work area, enhancing operator efficiency, with all equipment centralized in a climate-controlled machine room for improved security and easier system maintenance.
The IntellaPatch Series 3000 Extended Capacity (XE) network switch is a high capacity network monitoring aggregation switch that supports connections up to 40 Gbps including the 10Gbps connection rate supporting the Avio solution. Its modular design delivers flexibility in configurations while delivering leading reliability with redundant controllers with automatic failover, hot-swappable controllers, power supplies transceivers, optics, and fan assemblies. The IntellaPatch Series 3000 XE is also managed through APCON's leading and intuitive management system, WebX.
