KVM in Mission-Critical Control Rooms

Connect & Control

KVM systems can dramatically improve the effectiveness and efficiency of industrial and commercial organizations. Complex control rooms in factories rely on KVM matrix switches, enabling access to essential data and allowing operators to react instantly to unexpected events. Due to their enormous adaptability, IHSE devices are suitable for the challenging environments presented by the heavy engineering and chemical industries. IHSE KVM systems provide a high level of security, prevent unauthorized access and data abuse.


KVM extenders are essential when total security, reliability and data
quality are critical. They enable operators to see the whole picture, all the time, without fail and without compromise.

Draco tera KVM matrix switches instantly switch between sources
and operate with total reliability in 24/7, mission-critical systems.

Draco tera’s modular and fl exible design matches individual project
requirements. IHSE KVM solutions integrate cloud services and virtual machines, creating future-proof central remote control rooms.


Operators and network supervisors choose the information they need. Multiple screens of information are accessed using a single keyboard and mouse to minimize desktop clutter and simplify their tasks in a stressful environment.

Data can be shared between operators and displayed on common videowalls using simple and fast switching routines to ensure that everyone has the information they need right in front of them.

Draco SIRA CPU devices integrate virtual machines into the KVM infrastructure. Allowing operators to select between and access physical computers as well as virtual clients in the same way.
Draco SIRA CON devices provide remote IP access to the KVM system, using a standard internet browser or soft ware client.

KVM Solutions in Action


IHSE Draco KVM switches are used to route live operational data to operator console desks around the control suite. The KVM switch also handles content routing of live data and security CCTV camera images to the large videowall at the front of the control room.

Being able to respond and recover from incidents faster ensures that we can cater for the projected capacity increases and meet future customer demand.

A Draco tera-equipped control center manages the analysis, processing and coordination of essential flight information for ground and airport surface traffic control.

The perfect technology and collaboration with IHSE enabled us to develop an excellent KVM concept to meet our specifi c needs and requirements with swift and eff icient implementation.

Jörg Schulewski, Control Center Expert


Four large Draco KVM matrix switches keep NATO’s Combined Air Operations Center running, guarding against terrorist and national security threats, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Near instantaneous response, no dropped commands and unrestricted matrix connectivity enable the duty controller to specify the exact confi guration required. Even a slight delay in response is unacceptable.
