IOGEAR USB Sharing Station Allows Easy, Wi-Fi Access to USB Devices [08-04-2011]

The Wireless 4-Port USB Sharing Station connects to a home or office Wi-Fi network, allowing users with network access to simultaneously share connected USB devices including external hard drives, printers and more.

Foothill Ranch, Calif. - August 3, 2011 - IOGEAR, a leader in convergence through connectivity products, announces the 4-Port USB Sharing Station (GUWIP204), a computer accessory that allows wireless sharing of up to four USB peripherals in a home or office. By simply connecting devices to the sharing station and configuring it to a Wi-Fi network, devices can be shared by multiple users without distance limitations.

The gluttony of USB devices available can make finding an open port difficult. With IOGEAR's 4-Port USB Sharing Station, USB devices such as external hard drives, flash drives, webcams, memory card readers, speakers, multi-function printers (MFP) and even a USB Circus Cannon can be shared by multiple computer users with home or office Wi-Fi network access. The sharing station increases USB peripheral efficiency while reducing wear and tear on a computer's USB ports.

Convenient sharing of USB peripherals is useful in a variety of scenarios. A low-cost security system can be set-up by connecting a webcam to the share station in an area where monitoring is needed. Multi-function printing support means families, roommates or co-workers can scan, fax or print from laptops and computers within the office or home Wi-Fi network. Additionally, multimedia content from USB drives or storage devices can be easily accessed and backed up without the typical 16-foot distance limitation.

"Sharing USB peripherals is an easy way to stretch resources while improving the computing efficiency of a home or office setting,"said Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager for IOGEAR. "Our work and productivity spaces are cluttered enough, utilizing a Wi-Fi network for device sharing can help de-clutter, while providing many other useful applications."

The 4-Port USB Sharing Station is available now and has an MSRP of $99.95
