"MontaVista Software, Inc., developer of the Hard Hat Linux operating system for embedded applications, today announced it has worked with Avocent to deliver a new series of digital-based Keyboard/Video/Mouse (KVM) switches. The embedded Linux-based DS1800 is based on MontaVista's Hard Hat Linux and is designed to provide access to servers and devices from remote locations and delivers convenient, secure and nonstop performance. Applications that will benefit from this technology include Internet service providers (ISPs) and data centers."

"MontaVista provided our engineering team with reliable support and quality recommendations throughout our design phase," said Chris Thomas, senior vice president of Engineering for Avocent Corporation. "Their commitment to customer support and knowledge of the Linux platform was instrumental in designing our DS1800 digital switching system."

"Avocent's DS1800 is a digital KVM switching solution that provides administrators complete access to an unlimited number or servers or devices in their network, from any location. It leverages existing networking infrastructure to transmit KVM signals digitally, rather than relying on proprietary KVM cabling. DS1800 features unlimited scalability and advanced security features as well as an easy-to-use GUI interface."
