Digi's AnywhereUSB is a network-enabled USB hub with patented USB Over IP technology. The software drivers are loaded onto a host PC or server, enabling remote devices to communicate with the host, without changing existing application software. Peripheral devices can be centrally managed and monitored from a remote server or PC via an IP address. AnywhereUSB is ideal for mission-critical enterprise applications like point-of-sale, industrial automation, mobile computing, access control and more.
