"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

The AMX5000 KVM switch is an 8x32 appliance that provides powerful multi-user access to servers and devices.

The AMX5000 KVM switch provides full bandwidth, real-time access to servers using your existing UTP cable infrastructure. The switch supports multi-platform server environments including PS/2 and Sun. It also provides access to serial-based devices.

The AMX5000 switch operates over end-to-end UTP cabling with automatic compensation for any video losses induced by cabling.

The easy to use OSCAR graphical user interface is included. The Avocent AMWorks Java-based system administration tool provides you with centralized management software.

Features & Benefits

– Full bandwidth and real-time access to servers. Facilitates access to multiple servers and applications where full bandwidth video quality is critical

– Easy to use OSCAR graphical user interface. No training required for immediate user interaction with target computers

– Multi-platform support. PS/2, USB, Sun and SGI servers and VT100 serial-based devices

– Specialized application support. The AMX5000 switch is a proven choice for test labs, demo labs, design and broadcast environments. AMX switches are compatible with all major broadcast devices including Pinnacle Deko, Harris Device Manager and Raid arrays.

– Automatic compensation for any video losses induced by cabling. Simplifies the installation of equipment and guarantees highest quality video for each user without any user intervention

– Out-of-band access to computers. You can access all cascaded computers without needing to access the corporate network.

– End-to-end UTP cable, including CAT 5, 5e and 6. Eliminates bulky cabling connections and delivers real-time, high bandwidth video up to 1,000 feet from the server

– Consolidates the local ports of KVM over IP products. You have backup access to servers independent of the IP network.

– Event logs. AMWorks software maintains a record of all user logins and switching activity.

– Scalable architecture. AMX switches easily accommodate additional servers and users in growing network infrastructures.

– Integration with other LDAP services for authentication. You can use a single LDAP database for authentication. This minimizes the administration overhead of your existing network authentication process.
