MULTIPORT SERIAL BOARDS
USB PORTS over Ethernet network
Using a hub to plug USB ports over Ethernet network meets the need to virtualize software applications (a single PC can simulate several machines) in the VMware virtual environment.
For TOPKAPI, this allows recognition of the USB dongle when installing a license on a virtual machine.
Hubs (5 ports) called Anywhere USB from DIGI are validated to work in this environment.
