IHSE’s Matrix Grid Board Aids Interconnection Between KVM Matrix Switches

IHSE has introduced the Matrix Grid board to simplify the interconnection between Draco tera enterprise KVM matrix switches.

IHSE said the new plug-and-play technology reduces cost and wiring effort, especially when compared to course wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) connectivity, without any reduction in performance.

IHSE's flex-port technology aggregated in the Matrix Grid board combines up to eight ports over a single SFP fiber connection and can be separated by distances up to 6.2 miles. By using 10Gbps transport, all eight ports provide high-resolution video quality and latency-free keyboard and mouse actions.

Each Matrix Grid board includes two I/O ports that can be used for splitter or redundant path requirements. The board can connect several matrices of computers and consoles together to form a decentralized, virtual super-matrix. This allows users to access computers anywhere in the grid from their own workstations in real time.
