What USB Network Gate’s сustomers say
USB connection over the network helps with software development and debugging
I was looking for a high-quality USB connection between my iPad, Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia and my Windows-based laptop with various operating systems running on virtual machines for testing, developing and debugging my own software.
I use it with Vmware ESXi and NoMachine virtual solutions. My laptop runs Windows 7, and virtual machines run different versions of Windows and Linux, Mac Mini works on 10.8. I use my laptop at the university and connect to other machines remotely over OpenVPN.
The software allows me to connect USB devices to my laptop and develop mobile applications in the native environment over NoMachine remote desktop.
That’s how it goes: iPad/Nexus → My laptop (Windows 7) → OpenVPN → USB Network Gate and NoMachine → ESXi or Mac Mini → native environment on virtual machines – OS or OS X.
USB Network Gate allows me to work with native environments from anywhere and develop custom applications for various platforms from my laptop with ease.
Remote synchronization of an iPhone with a home computer
I work as an IT manager and my office is located far from home. Lately, it’s become difficult to work without syncing my phone during the day. Some software I use doesn’t take advantage of Apple’s iCloud so it requires a USB sync. Seeing as how my computer is at minimum 60 miles from where I work during any given day this is not possible.
Once I discovered USB Network Gate I found a solution to my problem. USB Network Gate lets me sync my phone from my travel computer to my workstation at home. I no longer have to worry about leaving documents or media files behind by accident. This also saved me a huge nightmare when my phone needed to be swapped at an Apple store mid-day and nothing was on it. USB Network Gate is the only solution of this type that reliably syncs a device. I was even able to do a firmware upgrade over the remote USB connection without issue.
USB Network Gate saves me from having to put all my personal iPhone sync data on my travel laptop where it can be lost, or stolen.
Having access to your licensed USB token wherever you go
I am a multimedia designer and my current focuses are GUI, illustration and sound design. Working with computers my whole life I’ve grown accustomed to licensing restrictions on software, especially in the creative fields where many programs require hardware tokens (dongles) to operate. Working on multiple systems I find this type of licensing to be very fast, as I can simply move my token and have immediate access to my software wherever I go.
The trouble is that after some years of working in the field you end up with quite a few tokens representing potentially tens of thousands of dollars of software licenses. So, it’s become quite a pain to move around and the prospect of having to contact all these different companies and negotiate replacements if I were to lose them is an absolute nightmare.
Here’s how USB Network Gate resolved these problems once and for all. If I want to work on my laptop in the house or on business travel, I don’t have to lug a USB hub with all of my tokens around with me – I just log-in to my tokens remotely over LAN or through my VPN – this gives me access to my licenses anywhere, with zero chance of losing them.
Extending cables without losing the capability of the USB 2.0 data transfer rate
I’m doing my Master’s degree to be a medical physicist to help people with cancer. USB Network Gate helps me in my research project.
When I’m doing experimental measurements of radiation with my detectors, I need to connect my cameras (USB 2.0) to my laptop to acquire my images. The problem is that I need to be out of the shielding bunker approximately 70 feet from the camera. This is too big for a USB 2.0 cable. I needed a way to extend the length of my cable to connect the cameras to the laptop because I can’t run the cameras from another computer. It needs to be on my laptop.
Now, with USB Network Gate I can connect my cameras to a little computer into the shielding bunker of a radiotherapy treatment room, and connect this computer to my laptop via an Ethernet cable 100 feet long. Using the USB Network Gate software, my laptop thinks that the cameras are directly connected to it so I can drive them from the outside on my laptop.
Using this software made me save a lot of money because I didn’t need to buy a physical USB 2.0 to Ethernet adaptor that costs about $500 to damage it with radiation for my experimentation.
Developing a web-based BioAPI CTS in the Knowledge Management System Lab of Inha University.
Yoo-Sung Kim, a professor in the Knowledge Management System Lab of Inha University:
To develop a web-based BioAPI conformance test system (CTS) which checks whether biometric devices follow the required international standards or not, we need a way for connecting remote biometric devices of client computers from the server. To develop the system in a very short time we need your product which makes connections from the CTS server to remote devices.
We are developing a web-based BioAPI CTS which is able to check whether the remote biometric devices connected to the test server by your product follow the related international standards such as ISO/IEC 24709 etc. or not.
By using your product, we can reduce the development time and we can focus only on developing BioAPI CTS Kernel. Since we have only one and a half months to prepare the demonstration, efficient usage is very important. So, your fast responses to our questions and requests are very impressive and helpful to us.
