Common problem

We use a lot of devices in modern offices, but not all of those devices can be redirected to other work places in the office. There may be one MFD, scanner, or else in the office and many employees need to use them through the day. Of course carrying heavy devices is not an option, especially if the office is spread among several floors or even several buildings.

How USB Network Gate solves it

USB Network Gate is a perfect USB redirector for those cases when you need to redirect USB devices to other computers on the network.

With our USB over Network solution you won't need to buy any additional hardware or restructure your network. You only need USB Network Gate on a computer with USB device physically attached and on a computer you will be redirecting device to. USB Network Gate will organize the connection and USB device will appear on a remote machine just as if it was physically plugged in to it!
