Extended KVM Systems - Remotely Connecting Operator Workstations To Displays/Keyboards/Mouse

To all, I wanted to share with everyone a very useful and robust technology that I have deployed in several locations where it is necessary to maintain physical separation between the computing equipment )(such as VMS servers & workstations) from the actual operators (i.e. dispatchers) who use the displays, keyboards & mouse devices.

It is a Matrox Extio F2208.

Typically the servers and workstations are located in clean and secure rooms while the displays and keyboards are out on the desktops or command center. Sometimes hundreds if not thousands of feet away in another building. This device allows you to use duplex, multimode fiber optic cabling to extend the displays hundreds of feet away and as far or over 1KM (0.62 miles) using single mode fiber.

It solved my problem and I thought it may be useful to others out there with the same challanges.

ps - I am not in anyway shape or form associated with a manufacturer, distributor or integrator. Just an end user.
