HP's IP Console Switch G2 with Virtual Media and Common Access Card (CAC) support is a key component in managing theheterogeneous data center and along with the IP Viewer software allows remote access to multiple servers running various operatingsystems. Virtual Media capability allows a removable drive or ISO image to be remotely mapped to an attached server in the datacenter or a remote office for software installations and upgrades. An intuitive User Interface provides menus for configuration, virtualmedia, display, and even security and upgrades from the local console. The term CAC stands for Common Access Card, also known as"Smart Cards". The CAC allows government agency and other company employees to keep all of their network access information on acard (about the size of a credit card) that is read by either an external USB reader or a port on the PC/server. These appliances addssupport for reading and transmitting USB CCID Generic Smart Card/CAC data from user station (local or remote) to end server.

In cascaded environments the HP IP Console Switch G2 with Virtual Media & CAC can allow an administrator to manage up to 1024 servers across two tiers from a single console. When tiered with additional HP Server Console Switches with Virtual Media applicationinstallations and upgrades can be pushed through to any server on any of the two tiers from a single console.

The HP IP Console Switch G2 with Virtual Media & CAC is backwards compatible with all HP Cat5 based Server Console Switches andinterface adapters that do not support virtual media.
