Digi’s patented RealPort USB software allows companies to network-enable USB devices easily
without spending valuable time and money to re-write existing application programs
Many of today’s key business applications were written to talk
to USB devices that are directly connected to servers. To serve
their customers better, businesses have found it necessary to
locate USB devices in places that are not always close to servers
or PCs.
Using RealPort USB software in conjunction with the
AnywhereUSB® network-enabled USB hub, users can connect
USB devices anywhere on the LAN. The solution is seamless –
the USB devices appear as though they are plugged directly
into the host PC, when in actuality they are connected to an
AnywhereUSB somewhere on the network. This ensures
compatibility with existing applications without any
modifications.
RealPort USB software is unique among USB extender solutions.
It is the only implementation that allows multiple connections
to multiple USB ports over a single TCP/IP connection. This
means that USB devices may be placed anywhere a network
connection exists. Also, RealPort USB supports as many USB
devices over the network as a server would if they were directly
connected. Many USB extenders cannot use TCP/IP networks
at all, making USB cabling clumsy and subject to reliability
problems. Other USB extenders require a separate TCP/IP
connection for each USB port, resulting in higher network
overhead and more processing demands on the server.
RealPort USB also provides connection recovery – after a
network interruption RealPort USB automatically reconnects
the device to the server’s USB port without the application
knowing there was a failure. Finally, RealPort USB offers
extensive operating system support including Windows® 2000,
XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012.
RealPort USB comes standard with Digi’s AnywhereUSB
network-enabled USB hub.
