Offshore Platform + Sea Shipping
Special fields of application such as offshore platforms and sea shipping pose extreme working conditions for humans and IT devices. Strong winds, salty air, waves and vibrations are just some of the strains the board equipment is exposed to. Therefore, any IT component must be as robust and reliable as possible.
How KVM works at sea
Engineers remove sensitive IT equipment into special rooms protected from the weather. A KVM matrix switch establishes the connection to the bridge. Thanks to the switches extending and switching functions the staff at the bridge are now able to access any computers. Two independent consoles at the bridge use and control all computers. The user enjoys highest performance and usability since the computer can be accessed without any losses in quality or perceptible latencies.
How KVM optimises sea shipping
KVM products from Guntermann & Drunck are considered extremely robust and reliable. Even bad weather cannot harm the devices, which allow direct access to sensitive IT equipment placed safely into the server room. The user benefits from the advantages of a direct computer connection, while a technician can maintain the computers in the server room without disturbing the crew at the bridge.
