The 4-Port USB 2.0 over Ethernet Extender lets you extend USB devices over a Gigabit Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) using dedicated Cat5e, Cat6, or Cat7 cabling up to 330ft (100m). Reuse Existing Infrastructure The USB over IP extender allows you to utilize your existing IP LAN so you can avoid running new infrastructure cabling. When channeling through multiple switches at 100m intervals, the maximum extension distance resets at each switch location, making it easy to span multiple floors in a home or office setting. You can even connect the local and remote units via a single Cat5e, Cat6, or Cat7. Gigabit Connectivity Unlike 10/100Mbps USB extenders, this versatile USB extender leverages the full data transfer potential of your USB 2.0 peripherals up to 480Mbps, to deliver low latency that enables support for extending isochronous devices such as webcams or microphones. Compatible with USB 2.0, and 1.1 devices with support for up to 600mA of power per port, it also functions as a USB over Ethernet hub Rugged Design A flexible solution for business or industrial applications, this rugged metal enclosure includes wall-mounting brackets and simple plug-and-play installation with no software or drivers required.
