Adder, a leading developer of KVM switches, extenders and KVM over IP solutions, today announced the availability of the CATxIP5000. Adder is one of the unique thought leaders in KVM technology that you can guarantee will deliver something extraordinary. The latest and possibly most disruptive KVM-over-IP technology that Adder has developed is the new CATxIP5000. This product pushes the boundaries of existing KVM technology by delivering the same functionality that you would find in a large power hungry KVM switch in an astonishingly small, low power and low cost package.
Together with chip designers Adventiq, Adder has developed a 16 port CATx KVM switch which delivers 4 independent non-blocking remote access sessions over standard network infrastructure. Adder's continued Research and Development in KVM over IP technology and the use of unique chipsets from Adventiq has resulted in a design breakthrough that enables an enterprise grade multi-session KVM-over-IP switch to be delivered at less than half the cost that would normally be expected for such functionality.

Nigel Dickens, Adder's CTO commented Previous multi-session KVM products have been too expensive to justify in many instances but this technology changes all that. The high performance to price ratio is all down to the uniqueness of the design concept - aspects of which are very different to existing KVM-over-IP solutions.

Integrating the latest generation of viewers from the inventors of VNC technology (Real VNC), the CATxIP5000 is ready to go straight from the box. Adder's ingrained principal of open architecture also means you can use the device with any other VNC application on the market.

Furthermore, at launch, this device will ship with the network management suite. has been 3 years in development, and offers enterprise scale management of IP control devices and virtual servers. puts all your equipment within easy reach from a single well thought out interface. The software presents itself in two forms; Management Suite and Connection Suite, allowing different user levels to gain administrative access. Fully integrated with active directory, users can be authenticated against your existing infrastructure. The system is also server based giving all users direct access, authentication dependant, from any networked machine, any time.
