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.
The AnywhereUSB software drivers are loaded onto a host PC or server so that USB devices attached to the AnywhereUSB hub may communicate with the host PC without changing existing device application software. AnywhereUSB drivers work equally well on physical servers or virtual machines in virtualized environments. Peripheral USB devices can be centrally managed and monitored from a remote server or PC. The Multi-Host Connections feature allows multiple host PCs to establish connections with the AnywhereUSB hub concurrently, where each PC takes ownership of a group of USB ports on the AnywhereUSB hub.
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.
