: AutoView 2000R"> Executive Summary: AutoView 2000R
Avocents AutoView 2000R is a 16-port, rack-mountable KVM switch that enables one analog user and two digital users to control a PC or Sun server almost as if they were sitting next to the device. Using KVM over IP, the digital users can work from any browser-equipped computer that is connected to the Internet.
At $3,995, the AutoView 2000R is cost-competitive with other products, especially considering that no additional hardware is needed to enable the digital usersas is the case with Raritans competing Paragon system. (+) Can control 16 systems, or 384 devices when cascaded with additional hardware; KVM over IP enables control from anywhere. (-) Sluggish digital performance; perfunctory security.
