As with the Wizard IP, the Wizard IP Plus enables you to access an attached ServSwitch(tm) and all servers connected to it from anywhere in the world via an IP network or a dialup connection. However, the ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus has an optimized internal structure that provides excellent video refresh rates and clarity across the network link-and uses remarkably little network bandwidth in the process!
In all, up to four remote users can simultaneously access the Wizard IP Plus.
You can connect all users through the front-panel RJ-45 network port or link one of the four remote users via the back-panel DB9 modem port. (You can also use this port as a backup access route should the network fail.)
DVI-I connector for digital displays.
The ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus's console connectors include PS/2® and USB ports for a keyboard and mouse, an audio jack for plugging in speakers, and a DVI-I port that autosenses between digital and analog video connections. Even better, the DVI-I port converts an analog input signal into a DVI signal to give you much clearer video displays!
Remote users get great video, too. An advanced video acceleration engine provides remarkable screen update performance when used over a LAN. And because the picture is transferred digitally, you can count on high color and picture fidelity at LAN speeds.
Supports virtual media and audio feeds.
You can link the Wizard IP Plus to IBM® compatible, Sun®, and Mac® servers and to just about any other ServSwitch product.
Plus it enables virtual media support-attach the USB port to the server you're controlling, and the Wizard IP Plus will emulate a USB mass storage device. Files on the viewer server can be made to appear on the virtual media drive, enabling easy file transfer between the viewer server and the viewed server.
There's also an audio jack for "audio-over-IP" applications, so you can feed audio signals from a host site to remote VNC viewers for presentation and training purposes.
Secure VNC viewer or browser access.
The Wizard IP Plus contains an embedded VNC server, which you can access securely using a VNC viewer or a browser running Java(tm). No extra software seat licenses are needed, and private or shared access modes are supported from up to four viewers.
State-of-the-art data compression techniques work even at dialup connection speeds as low as 33 kbps. In addition, a dialup access option provides inherent first-level security. Data-stream encryption using a 128-bit key is available, and a VNC-specific architecture enables mutual authentication between local and remote users.
The Wizard IP Plus has a power control port that enables a remote user to reset one or more power switches in the host system. Dual power connectors enable the Wizard IP Plus to draw power from its included adapter or from a secondary power adapter that can be connected to a UPS to provide redundant power capabilities.
The Wizard IP Plus is also flash upgradable, so it's obsolescence-proof.
