Adder unveils world's smallest high-performance KVM transmitter

Adder Technology an IP-based KVM specialist, has announced the launch of the ADDERLink INFINITY 100T (ALIF100T).

The ALIF100T is a zero-U, IP-based, USB powered KVM transmitter that can form part of the ADDERLink INFINITY solution.

It can be plugged straight into the back of any computer, meaning it takes up zero U if rack mounted, can hang from the back of the source and can be retrofitted into any existing infrastructure.

It has been developed in response to customer demand and a definite gap in the market for a zero-U, high-performance KVM transmitter.

The new transmitter is ideal for use in applications where rack space is at a premium, organisations are trying to bring costs down and a cost-effective, high-performance KVM solution is required.

In addition to saving on rack space, savings are made on power consumption and installation costs.

The ADDERLink INFINITY 100T uses only 2 watts, which means less heat is generated and less cooling is required, therefore bringing down costs.

The device can also be powered directly from USB, meaning there is no need for power distribution units (PDUs), again saving on costs and required space.

Adder Technology senior product manager John Halksworth says, “The ADDERLink INFINITY 100T is revolutionary in its design, taking up significantly less real estate within the cabinet and eliminating the need for costly rack space.

“This is especially attractive to organisations that are looking to upgrade or update their current KVM systems with the ADDERLink INFINITY range but are hindered by the lack of space or the cost of redesigning their current infrastructure.”

“Retrofitting high-performance KVM into environments designed around legacy, outdated equipment is challenging and expensive, sometimes requiring a complete redesign, however, with the new transmitter, businesses can easily take advantage of the ADDERLink INFINITY solution without this costly step."

The new ADDERLink transmitter adds to the company's existing product range and works with the ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (A.I.M.) and ADDERLink INFINITY receivers.

The device will be shipping on 15th March 2018.
