A network USB hub is a USB-over-IP device that connects USB assets such as printers, scanners, and POS devices, without requiring the host computer to be in close proximity. Network USB hubs allow computers to be centralized, virtualized, positioned in racks, or placed in lower traffic locations, which improves data security, streamlines configuration, testing and management, and reduces the amount of equipment in a work area.
IoT business automation requires communication with various IT assets and peripherals located across an enterprise. AnywhereUSB® Plus remote USB hubs give users the simplest and most direct connection options for existing equipment with a variety of USB 3.1 Gen 1 port options. All three models have Gigabit Ethernet support for failover redundancy and network bonding with SFP+ ports in the 8 and 24-port models for higher speeds or fiber networks.
