ATEN CL5708N Overview

The Aten CL5708N 8-Port 19" Single Rail LCD KVM Console is a control unit that allows access to multiple computers from a single PS/2 or USB KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) console. A single CL5708N can control up to 8 computers, and as many as 31 additional KVM switches can be daisy-chained to the CL5708N, so that up to 256 computers can all be controlled from a single KVM console. The CL5708N integrates a keyboard, 19" LCD monitor, and touchpad in a 1U rack-mountable sliding housing for conservation of space.
