  • Server Access Module for USB for ServSwitch Octopus
Cutting-edge server management perfect for a variety of applications The system in detail.
The Octopus switching system consists of the switching unit itself, a User Station, and Server Access Modules (SAMs). All components are hooked together over CAT5 cable or higher.

The SAM, a matchbox-size molded unit with a pigtail cable attached, doesn’t require any rack space and draws its power from the attached server. This ensures keep-alive functionality, providing keyboard and mouse emulation to the server at any time, and it’s independent of the switching system’s status.

The SAM has a unique ID address, too.
As soon as it’s connected to the Octopus switch, the SAM’s address appears on the CPU channel list within the connected User Station’s on-screen menu. From this menu, the SAM can be operated by an administrator. This plug-and-play simplicity reduces installation time tremendously.

The SAM’s numeric ID can be named by the user through the User Station’s on-screen menu, and it’s stored in the SAM’s nonvolatile flash memory.

If the SAM is disconnected from the server and moved to a different location, its name will instantly disappear from the list. Once you plug the SAM back into any of the switch’s CPU ports, the system recognizes the SAM again automatically without any additional reconfiguration. You can also connect SAM right to a User Station to provide direct access to the server without interrupting the emulation.
