AnywhereUSB product is a network-attached USB hub that connects USB peripheral devices to a PC over a Local Area Network. Combining Digi's patented RealPort USB and RealPort COM port redirector technologies, AnywhereUSB connects USB and serial devices anywhere on a wired or wireless LAN, while eliminating the need for locally-attached host PCs. 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/5 provides five USB ports, which deliver Plug and Play user experience as onboard USB ports. 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.
