To allow customers network both USB and serial IP devices with one product

By CBR Staff Writer

Digi International has unveiled two new AnywhereUSB products, the AnywhereUSB TS and AnywhereUSB/2. The line of AnywhereUSB products can be used with virtual machine software.


Digi said that the new AnywhereUSB TS comes with combined USB and serial over IP hub. It combines the company’s patented Realport USB-over-IP and Realport Serial-over-IP technology in one product allowing customers to network both USB and serial devices with one product.


The company said that the new AnywhereUSB/2 is a compact USB hub featuring Realport USB-over-IP technology. This allows the new product to connect USB devices anywhere on a wired or wireless network. The AnywhereUSB products are suitable for connecting USB devices to networks in virtualisation, retail and healthcare applications.


Reportedly, the new AnywhereUSB/2 features two USB ports and one Ethernet port. The new AnywhereUSB TS features four USB ports, four serial ports and one Ethernet port. It also includes patented Realport serial-to-Ethernet technology that allows customers to network enable their serial devices.
