KLEv2 is a powerful and secure IP extender to address the critical issue of remote management of computers. With KLEv2 ou can access your servers with total security and convenience. You can work or carry out maintenance operations from any location in the world over the Internet or from any office of your company over your LAN. KLEv2 does not need any specific cabling. It leverages the existing network infrastructure. At the local side the addition of a KLEv2 is transparent.

Like all IP KVMs, the access to remote computers attached to KLEv2's is done from your PC or mobile by using a piece of software called a viewer. The viewer makes you fill almost as if you were in front of the remote computer. It displays the remote video on your monitor and transmits your mouse and keyboard events to the remote computer. The viewer can be launched manually or by a simple click in the computer or device list in KCenter. Three viewers are available: Windows viewer, Java viewer running on all computer operating systems including Windows, and Android PRIMA viewer for Android tablets or smartphones.

KCenter is a free management program provided with KLEv2. It allows using and managing a set of KMinis or KLEv2s as a single full matrix and non blocking KVM. KCenter detects the distributed devices, centralizes all alarms and logs, allows the upgrade of all devices in a single operation, and much more. Kcenter includes a Multiviewer that is able to display all or a subset of the devices.

KLEv2is also one of the devices that can be managed with PRIMA Center.

KLEv2 provides a passthrough Local Console. It means you can connect a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a VGA or DVI monitor to KLEv2. They will provide the same service as if they were directly connected to the computer. KLEv2 also features two Ethernet ports with an internal Ethernet switch. You can use the Ethernet cable of the computer to connect KLEv2 to the LAN and add a short patch cord from KLEv2 to the computer. All these features mean you can insert a KLEv2 to get remote control of a computer without changing anything to the local configuration and usage. You don't need an extra Ethernet port on your Ethernet switch.

KLEv2 can drive most of power supply controllers (PDUs) that are controlled through an RS232 interface. Using a PDU makes you able to remotely power off and power on the computers individually. The natural companion PDU of KLEv2 is ioPower.

KLEv2 can survey the attached computer and detect some symptoms revealing mal functioning machines. It can send alarm emails describing the problem to several destinations. It can also send SNMP traps to an SNMP manager.

KLEv2 provides a high level of security with SSL encrypted connections. Users have individual ID/Password and privileges determined by reading the device internal database or by requests to LDAP / RADIUS / Active Directory servers in case your company has already set up a centralized management of users.

With the Virtual Media feature, a storage device (DVD/CDROM, USB key, ISO file, etc) physically connected to the computer running the viewer can appear as if it was connected to the remote computer. This function allows file transfers in both directions and even booting the remote computer on the bootable media.

KLEv2 is delivered with most of software and hardware accessories: KCenter, Windows and Java viewers, power adapter, VGA/DVI adapters. If needed, the Android viewer and the WiFi adapters must be bought independently.

KLEv2 comes with a one-year warranty and free technical support.
