With kvm-tec switching solution, all market sectors, such as control rooms, industry 4.0, medical technology, flight and traffic monitoring, training and conference centers, broadcast industry, etc., can benefit from the system. Matrix Switching Systems with up to 48/56/100/1000/ 2000 endpoints can be implemented flexibly and cost-effectively without the need for central, expensive switches with limited endpoints.
Thanks to kvm-tec in-house developed switching technology, there is almost no limit to the number of endpoints in the switching system and the individual endpoints (PC, monitor, etc) can behave passively when controlled via the software. This means that the end point only needs the information at the correct switching moment, resulting in less data traffic in large systems.
With the switching upgrade, all extenders can be upgraded to the perfect KVM matrix switch in combination with a standard network switch (the upgrade is pre-installed and can also be activated after delivery with code.), much cheaper and much less installation of cables.
The Matrix Switching System can be intuitively connected, managed and controlled via the OSD menu or the kvm-tec Switching Manager software. A Windows PC or Tablet with network interface is required for commissioning and operating the software. Any number of switching managers can be used in a switching system.
The features included in the kvm-tec Switching Manager software, such as Mouse glide & switch - Live Preview and 4K Multiview Commander (NEW worldwide - up to 4 PCs can be controlled and operated via one 4K monitor) increase the security of applications in areas, wherever system control is required. (e.g. applications in medical areas, tunnel traffic monitoring, emergency control rooms). Very comfortable, ergonomic and intuitive operation is thus possible in monitoring and control rooms as well as in the medical field and offers decisive advantages in terms of safety.
Can be used in a dedicated network via Gigabit switch. 1 Gigabit bandwidth is required from each port to any other port. IGMP Snooping
4K ULTRALINE DP1.2, media4Kconnect requires 10 Gigabit bandwidth: IGMP Snooping
Max number of ports: 2000, e.g. 1000 and 1000 workstations
network security - stay secured with kvm-tec
By using standard network switches, kvm-tec Extender uses the highest security standard used in professional networks.
The PC technology offers the highest security in the network and therefore the Switching 2000 network benefits from the high security standard of the PC technology.
Network Requirements - UDP Version
The KVM-TEC Matrix Switching System communicates via IP
between the individual endpoints (local/CPU or remote/CON), as well as with the KVM-TEC Switching Manager, Gateway2Go and API. Sharing of videos is realized via the IGMP function of the switch via multicast.
Each endpoint joins a multicast group, even if only one connection is established. This process is repeated cyclically so that the switch keeps the multicast group active.
One exception is the Gateway2Go, which uses unicast and communicates via UDP just like the other devices.
The following UDP ports are required for the transmission:
Port number 53248 (0xD000) to 53260 (0xD00C)
Port number 50000 (0xC350)
These ports must be taken into account when configuring the firewall.
For the connection via WAN a secured VPN connection is necessary.
DHCP management of IP addresses is supported by the KVM-TEC Matrix system, static IP addresses are possible, internal default address range and assignment of IP addresses via a DHCP server.
kvm-tec Extender are based on Layer3 and UDP (exception Classicline 48 - Layer 2 )
To meet all these requirements, the use of Layer 3 switches is recommended.
