KVM extenders and KVM switches

If you are trying to locate your keyboard and mouse a great distance away from your PC or KVM switch, a KVM extender can help you. A PS/2 KVM extender gives you the ability to go further than the typical 20-25 ft limit for PS/2 cables. A USB kvm extender would allow you to go further than the 16 ft. USB limit. A KVM extender can run over cat5, cat5e or cat6 copper cable. They can also run over fiber optics and are called Fiber optic KVM extenders. These fiber optic KVM extenders run over singlemode or multimode fiber. You can achieve distances of up to 1000 ft typically with the copper KVM extenders and the fiber KVM extenders will take you kilometers.
