Keyspan Offers Its New USB 2.0 Server

Keyspan is now shipping its new USB 2.0 Server. The server combines the functionality of a USB print server and USB extender. It allows PC and Mac clients to access two Hi-Speed USB 2.0 devices over Ethernet or WiFi. Keyspan's USB 2.0 Server lets multiple users share USB devices on a network and extends a USB connection-between a host PC and the USB device-over any distance. The USB 2.0 Server eliminates the need to dedicate a PC as a host for a USB device. Students, wireless office workers and road-warriors alike can access USB devices from a laptop via WiFi.

USB 2.0 Server Features:
- Connects two USB 2.0 Hi-Speed devices to a (10/100) Ethernet network;
- Compatible with USB printers, scanners, digital cameras, storage devices, data loggers and other USB devices;
- Supports bi-directional communication with printers that e.g. allows users to monitor ink and paper levels remotely;
- For use with PCs running Windows XP or Windows Vista, or Macs running Mac OS X (10.3.9 or later).
