More and more USB devices, such as scanners, multi-function printers, hard disk drives, and cameras, have been used in offices. The USB Device Server allows you to use devices on a network, improving installation Flexibility without troublesome USB cables. This also reduces installation costs by enabling USB devices to be easily shared in the office in a cost optimized manner.
What is a USB Device Server?
Using Silex Technology's USB Virtual Link (UVL) Technology, it enables USB devices on the network be available as if they are connected to a PC by a USB cable, allowing you to use not only the USB device drivers, but all application software as-is.
SX Virtual Link
SX Virtual Link (SVL) is application software for USB Virtual Link Technology (UVL). Any networked USB devices connected to a USB Device Server can be remotely connected to a PC through USB by using SVL.
• You can remotely operate USB devices (connect, disconnect, etc.)
• You can send a disconnect request when the shared USB device is in use
USB 3.0 Super Speed is supported. DS-600 can transmit data faster than the preceding model. Even devices that handle large data such as scanners can transmit data quickly with USB3.0 and the DS-600, allowing you to improve work efficiency.
Once and enterprise network security requirements increased in recent years. A number of new authentication methods are supported to prevent illegal access/intrusion to the internal network and for increased data secrecy and route encryption requirements. DS-600 supports the following three enterprise network security features.
IEEE 802.1X authentication
DS-600 supports IEEE 802.1X authentication, and it can be used for a network environment, which requires enterprise authentication. Supported authentication: EAP-TLS, PEAP (PEAPv0), EAP-TTLS.
Data encryption (AES256bit)
Data encryption is supported over network routes. It processes network transfer safely for data requiring high security.
USB connect password function
Password configuration is available for each USB port. DS-600 manages users, who can connect to a specific USB device.
Isochronous Transfer mode
USB devices such as Webcams or USB speakers, which require consecutive and real-time data transmission, can be also used in a network environment. DS-600 supports both Full Speed and High Speed.
Standard TCP/IP printing (LPR/RAW)
DS-600 supports generally-used network printing protocols: "Raw mode printing" and "LPR printing". DS-600 can be available as a print server when it is connected to a printer.
NAS (Network Attached Storage) functions
Storage such as USB hard disk drives can be used as NAS. When storage with specific formats are simply connected to DS-600, they will be available as NAS in the network. Supported formats: FAT12, FAT16, FAT32.
Silex free software "Device Server Setup" (available at Silex web site) gives easy-setup. Users just need to answer questions on the screen and the configuration will be easily done.
When DS-600 is not used for a certain period of time, the USB bus power feeding is turned o to save energy. It increases power-saving efficiency. The USB bus power feeding automatically restarts upon use.
DS-600 is compatible with USB-Hubs, allowing to increase the number of connectable USB devices. If you have questions to the maximum number of connectable USB devices, please contact the Silex Technical Support.
