How to Buy

USB Connectivity Anywhere

Rapidly deploy, configure, secure and manage devices at any distance

In the IoT world, the technological evolution is accelerating and expanding, which drives the need to continuously update deployed devices with new features and firmware. As a network engineer, you need a consistent, secure and cost-effective way to verify that your IoT infrastructure is configured correctly and fully operational as it continues to expand. You also need flexible methods to test, provision, confirm and resolve any connectivity issues related to scaled deployments of IoT devices. Digi AnywhereUSB® Plus lets you readily manage a large volume of USB devices with minimal effort.

Increase Security Posture and Agility

As a network of USB IoT devices expands, the risk of cyber attacks increases. Network engineers need to take proactive measures to increase the security posture of their network. AnywhereUSB Plus coupled with Digi Remote Manager® protects your peripheral devices and gives you the security agility needed to keep your networks safe.

Deploy & Manage USB Devices Over IP
Deploy and Manage USB Devices Over IP
Connect to almost any USB device, anywhere. Manage up to 24 USB devices over IP. Recharge or install firmware updates on barcode scanners, receipt printers, credit card readers, point of sale terminals, cameras, scales, monitors, in-store kiosks, security check-in stations, telephone systems, removable disks, license dongles and more.
Centralize Network USB Connections
Centralize Network USB Connections
Digi AnywhereUSB Plus remote hubs let you manage USB assets over IP, beyond the limit of USB cable distances. Computers can be centralized, virtualized or positioned in racks to reduce the amount of equipment in a work area, improve security, and streamline configuration and testing.
USB Hub With Flexible Connectivity Options
Efficiently Manage USB Hubs With Flexible Connectivity Options
Group USB ports within one remote hub to give different clients access to one or more of these groups of smart devices. Different users can then access only the equipment they need to work with, as they need it, without affecting access to any other devices being managed.

USB Over IP Solutions To Improve Security Posture at the Edge

Speed

Achieving Maximum USB Speed

Digi AnywhereUSB Plus uses USB 3.1 gen 1 Type A ports capable of achieving data transfer speeds of 5 Gbps, which is over 10X faster than USB 2.0.

To maximize the 5 Gbps transfer speeds of USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type A ports, your USB computer host, cables and peripheral devices must all be USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type A or USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A.

Digi AnywhereUSB Plus is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0. USB 2.0 has a maximum data transfer speed of 480 Mbps.

On-Screen Telestration Made Possible With Digi AnywhereUSB Plus

As the golfer steps up to the tee, the TV analyst uses his finger and a USB-connected infrared touchscreen to illustrate the challenges of the 14th hole. The graphics server is thousands of feet away. Considering the short-distance limitations of USB cable, ChyronHego turned to Digi.

“The Digi piece of our solution is relatively small, but it’s hugely critical to success in the field.”

Rob Rizzuto, Director of Field Operations for ChyronHego

Increase Reliability of USB Devices in Harsh Environments

Harsh Environment USB SupportUsing Digi AnywhereUSB Plus helps keep your computer more stable and secure. Instead of placing your computer in a harsh environment like a commercial kitchen, Digi AnywhereUSB Plus connectivity lets you place the environmentally sensitive computer in a safe location such as the manager’s office or an IT equipment rack (Figure 1). Digi AnywhereUSB Plus software drivers are loaded on a remote computer, making the USB ports appear to be locally attached and allowing the USB device to be located far beyond the three or five meter USB hub distance limits. The USB-based printer, keyboard and monitor are positioned in the commercial kitchen as needed, but the main computer for the restaurant is safely housed in an office or secure closet away from the harsh conditions.

USB Dongle Server for Dynamic Access to Software Seat Licenses

Software with seat licenses can be managed by an accessible license file on a key fob or dongle required to run the software on a computer (Figure 2). Physically tracking license dongles can be problematic, as they’re easily lost or misplaced. By consolidating them in a Digi AnywhereUSB Plus acting as a remote dongle server, you can securely manage access, with each key available independently to users on individual workstations.
