L1Techs KVM Diagrams - Common Setups & Info

I have very in-depth info → here on the forum, but I realize some out there might prefer diagrams to better visualize how to setup their KVM.
Or, if you’re KVM-curious and wonder how much you’ll need to get for your setup, this can help at a glance. Let me know if you have any questions or if I missed something :smiley:

USB Standards (5-gigabit vs 10-gigabit)

10-gigabit is USB 3.2 Gen 2
5-gigabit is USB 3.2 Gen 1


Data & Display vs Data Only

USB-C / Combo KVMs (Data & Display) need at least USB-C 3.0 cables
DisplayPort / HDMI KVMs (Data Only) need at least USB-C 2.0 cables

DisplayPort KVMs


Do you have DP-ALT support?

Combo KVMs

Added clarification for USB-C diagrams

Thanks team for the diagrams.

Been working on manuals a while. Ambers doing some heavy lifting there now too


Next is an IP version right, so I can replace IHSE/G&D/ADDER on all my system designs?

HDR, and low latency (10g/25g is fine)
