AnywhereUSB products are network-attached USB hubs that connect USB peripheral devices to a PC over a local Area network. The AnywhereUSB TS model also adds four RS-232 serial ports, enabling the mixing of USB and serial ports over the same network connection. Relocating the host PC to a remote location translates to smaller workstations, enabling deployment without a local PC in kiosks, ATMs, restaurant kitchens, manufacturing lines or any hostile or non-secure area where having a local PC is not practical.
AnywhereUSB is a network-enabled USB hub. It is the first remote networking solution to combine RealPort USB, Digi's patented USB Over IP technology, and RealPort, Digi's patented COM port redirector technology, making it easy to connect USB and serial devices anywhere on a wired or wireless LAN, while eliminating the need for locally-attached host PCs.
AnywhereUSB is compatible with bulk or interrupt type USB devices such as bar-code scanners, printers, fingerprint scanners, mice, pole displays, card readers, flash drives, security keys, and more. It is an excellent solution for networked USB or serial devices in VMware and Microsoft virtualized environments. Watchport/V2 USB camera (click here to see a live video feed), Watchport sensors and Edgeport USB-to-serial converters are also fully compatible with AnywhereUSB.
