Differences between KVM models AF617a and AF626a

We're looking at purchasing some additional server console switches for our rack servers.  We've previously used the 16 port 0x2x16 (AF617a).  However, on the HP site, on the server console switch quick specs, I now see AF626a, "HP TAA 0x2x16xKVM Server Console G2 Switch".  

 

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between this and the "HP Server Console 0x2x16 Port Analog Switch" (AF617a) model?

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hey, I suppose the new one is TAA compliant, whatever that means.

http://www8.hp.com/nz/en/products/rack-switches/product-detail.html?oid=4072351

Has info on the new AF626a.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11834_na/11834_na.html is the quickspecs for both but it doesn't give you the differences.
