Inside Out Networks Demonstrates the First USB-to- 802.11b Wireless LAN Product at CeBIT

Inside Out Networks, the leading provider of Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity products and technology, announced at CeBIT the Waveport USB-to-Wireless LAN Adapter for wireless network expansion. "Waveport takes Inside Out Networks one gigantic leap forward with USB connectivity," said Stephen Popovich, company president and CEO "Wireless connectivity solves so many user and network managers' issues with connecting to the LAN. Imagine adding a user to your enterprise network without the expense and hassle of deploying new cabling, and without having to open up the PC to add a network interface card (NIC). The Waveport greatly simplifies network expansion, combining the ease of USB connectivity with the flexibility and mobility of wireless networking in a single, low-cost solution," commented Popovich. Microsoft endorses both USB and 1394 for PC network and peripheral connectivity because these new legacy-free connections ensure a true Plug and Play experience for the user. "The next generation of easier-to-use PCs will have some, if not all, of their key expansion external to the PC," stated Stacey Breyfogle, program manager for Windows Hardware Strategy at Microsoft Corp. "The default way to connect and install new devices will be to plug the device into a USB or 1394 connector on the outside of the PC. All new PCs are shipping USB-ready, so USB is a readily available connection method today." The Waveport connects via USB to legacy-free PCs, thin clients, laptops and desktops, supporting all Microsoft Windows operating systems, including the newly released Windows 2000. The Waveport installs in seconds, and is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.11b Standard. The wireless solution can support up to 11Mbps throughput - the same throughput as a wired LAN. Inside Out was the first and is the leading provider of USB high performance multiport serial, parallel, and hub connectivity solutions. Inside Out will be demonstrating its USB connectivity solutions at CeBIT Germany, USA Pavilion Hall 6, Stand H20, Booth L1-L3, on February 24 - March 1, 2000.
