What are Cisco KVM cables and what are they used for?

Cisco KVM cables are specialized cables designed to allow control of multiple computers or servers from a single keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (Keyboard, Video, Mouse). They connect to the console port of a Cisco device, typically a server or switch, providing access to the operating system and BIOS settings.

Here's a breakdown of their key features and uses:

  • Multi-connector design: Combines VGA video, USB keyboard/mouse, and sometimes serial connection in a single cable.
  • Cisco-specific compatibility: Optimized for use with Cisco devices, ensuring proper connection and functionality.
  • Secure access: Provides direct, physical access to the console port, bypassing network vulnerabilities.
