Icron Extends USB 500 Meters over Ethernet to 40 KM over Fiber
Robert Haefling joins Jeff and Esby on the TPN Live CES coverage. He is from Icron – a company that makes solutions for cabling. KVMs and USB over Networks, Fiber and Wireless.
As an IT pro, I have dealth with cables for a long time. When we went to wireless computers, I was ecstatic. Imagine how happy I will be when you can run a USB drive over ethernet.
That is what Icron does – they make devices that let you set up a USB camera in one room and run to another room via the network. You can also take a USB monitor, keyboard and mouse, then have a computer in the basement and you are working in the office up in the attic.
With USB over network, you can push a device up to 500 meters over Ethernet and 40 kilometers over Fiber networks. When USB 3.0 technology comes out, you can have a room that locks the computer and storage, then work in another room.
