G&D Pack ControlCenter-IP With New Features

The ControlCenter-IP, a matrix for KVM-over-IP from KVM manufacturer Guntermann & Drunck, includes important functionalities such as the integration of Generic USB devices and high speed USB 2.0 in KVM-over-IP installations.

In addition, the MatrixGuard function was implemented in the ControlCenter-IP to provide extensive security for possible failure scenarios. The MatrixGuard enables extremely secure, redundant clusters to be implemented in KVM-over-IP environments.

It is now possible to integrate generic USB devices into the G&D's ControlCenter-IP to make it easier for users to connect mass storage devices. Operators can also decide whether the matrix should support HID (keyboard/mouse) or mass storage devices and define this accordingly from Generic HID to Generic USB (or vice versa) in the configuration interface.

The manufacturer also has a fitting solution for high-speed USB 2.0 requirements. Since the launch of the new U2-LAN-04 extender, users can integrate high-speed USB 2.0 signals with a speed of up to 480Mbit/s into their ControlCenter-IP installations. U2-LAN-04 end devices can be paired with KVM-over-IP extenders and switched synchronously or separately via the IP-Control-API.

The MatrixGuard function further provides security for failure scenarios in KVM-over-IP installations. When multiple ControlCenter-IP devices are running in a clustered installation, one of the switches takes over the role of the master. If the master fails, a backup or database slave ControlCenter-IP automatically takes over the role of the master. This way, the matrix system remains operable at all times.
