As is now customary when we organise a new competition, we like to introduce our partner. This month we are delighted to pair up with the rather splendid team at ATEN to offer up the chance to win one of five Ritek Ridata R6 Bluetooth Smart Watches.

Our great friends at ATEN design and manufacture a full range of sophisticated KVM switch products and solutions. ATEN, established in 1979, is specialised in connectivity and management solutions in accessing and sharing technologies.

“Simply Better Connections” has always been at the heart of the ATEN brand. It means providing innovative solutions for you to make better connections, efficiently and seamlessly, to the information and people that you value. As a result, ATEN connects you to the world, anytime and anywhere, by providing technologies that enable you to share and to care. ATEN makes professional and personal life more comfortable, simpler and better connected.

With a vast product range at our disposal, we found it hard to choose just one product to feature but decided to look at the ATEN Portable Laptop USB Console Crash Cart Adapter. Professional IT experts can now make the smart choice by choosing an ‘All-in-one Crash Cart Adapter’. ATEN’s CV211 is a laptop USB KVM console adapter designed specifically for frustrated mobile IT managers. It is the perfect crash cart replacement that turns your laptop into a KVM console combining the functionality of a wormhole switch, capture box, external DVD-ROM, keyboard, mouse and monitor all in one compact and convenient unit. You are free to quickly and professionally diagnose and troubleshoot servers, ATMs or PoS systems with ease.


Features include:

  • Laptop USB KVM Console Crash Cart Adaptor
  • Bi-directional file transfers between the laptop and target computer
  • Supports analogue video resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
  • VIRTUAL MEDIA enables file applications, OS patching, software installation and diagnostic testing
  • Video recording and image capture feature saves a record of remote operations for future training and troubleshooting
  • Plug and play with NO SOFTWARE INSTALLATION

The reviews from delighted customers have been great:

“Using the CV211, you can determine the status of the host within five minutes. This not only shortens working hours but also greatly increases our overall effectiveness.” – Mr Lin, Server Maintenance IT Engineer

“Using the CV211, one of our branch assistants can connect to the server so we can troubleshoot remotely from the Taipei office, meaning no one has to take a special trip. This saves us time, manpower and costs.” – Mr Wang, MIS, Large Corporation
