KVM Switches

What is a KVM Switch?

A KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) switch or sometimes referred to as a server switch or CPU switch is a hardware device that enables a user or multiple users reliable access to control a number of computers using a single keyboard, monitor (video display) and mouse.

How does a KVM Switch work?

A KVM switch pushes multiple video and peripheral signals and produces a single output to a single keyboard, video or mouse, allowing for quick access to several computers and data sources.

Some KVM switches allow users to alternate audio and USB devices between computers and many are designed for connections of up to thousands of users and servers controlled from a single console.
