The cable connecting your USB computers to your GCS1716, GCS1742 or GCS1744 KVM switch determine the quality of communication between the CPUs and the switch. The custom-made cable is designed to provide high signal capacity with the lowest signal loss. This important technology produces high quality video output - even after long distance transmission or in the most electronically noisy environments such as server cabinets. IOGEAR's premium custom-made KVM cable guarantees optimum signal integrity for high-grade server needs. The keyboard and mouse cable is made of double-sealed 22-gauge wire and are neatly wrapped with a heavy-duty video cable for simplified connections.
