The RG2304-LAN supports extension of USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 compliant devices across a LAN at up to 480Mbps and includes Icron's SwitchableUSB™, which enables applications or systems to manage the host and peripheral connections.

"We are very pleased to introduce the first product of Icron's new, USB over Network extender product family, the RG2304-LAN.

"Another unique feature is SwitchableUSB™, which enables the host and peripheral pairings to be controlled by another system, such as a video matrix switch. This affords the flexibility of turning a video matrix switch into a KVM network switch".

The RG2304-LAN is now available for private label and OEM opportunities.
