PRESS RELEASE: Keyspan Ships Revolutionary USB Server for PCs and Macs
RICHMOND, Calif. -- Keyspan had announced it is now shipping its revolutionary USB Server that connects USB devices to a Mac or PC via a wired or wireless Ethernet-based LAN.
The Keyspan USB Server has an MSRP of $129 and is available to resellers from Ingram Micro, D&H, and Wynit; and to consumers at CompUSA, CDW, and other leading computer products resellers.
Much like a USB print server, the USB Server enables attached USB devices to be used and shared by client PCs on a LAN. In addition to printers, the USB Server supports other USB devices such as scanners.
The USB Device Server provides 4 ports for connecting to USB devices at Full Speed USB (12 Mbps). It connects to 10/100 Ethernet networks via an RJ45 connector and supports static IP, DHCP, and Apple's Rendezvous address assignment. Client PCs must be running Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher.
"Much like a print server, the Keyspan USB Server enables attached USB devices to be used and shared by client PCs on a LAN," said Mike Ridenhour, president of Keyspan. "In addition to supporting USB printers, the USB Server supports USB multi-function printers and USB scanners."
Keyspan products provide "Connections for Your Computer." The company's first products provided serial ports for connecting to traditional computer peripherals such as modems, printers and graphics tablets. Over time, Keyspan has expanded its horizons, connecting the PC and Macintosh to other items found in the home, school and office. Keyspan products are available to resellers via Ingram and to consumers through leading catalogs and online resellers.
NPD Distributor Hardware Accessory Report shows that Keyspan is the top selling brand of USB connectivity products for the last three years. Keyspan's cards, hubs, and adapters offer reliable connectivity solutions for the home, school, and office.
