Belkin announced yesterday that its Wireless USB Hub (F5U302) [previous story] now meets the USB-IFs Wireless USB Specification requirements, ensuring compatibility with other Wireless USB devices.
The product is scheduled to ship starting next month in the US for $199.99 MSRP.
SmallNetBuilder has learned that Belkin has discontinued its Pulse network monitoring product, which was announced in April. A company spokesperson was not able to provide a specific reason for pulling the product.
Pulse might have been conceived as a natural extension of Belkin's Datacenter product line, which includes cabling, racks and UPS products. But the product never really got into distribution and was quietly cancelled sometime in the past month.
Pulse was based on technology from privately-funded JumpNode Systems, which is based in Minneapolis. JumpNode is actively selling its own version of the product, primarily through resellers.
Belkin today announced its Certified Wireless USB hub.
The F5U302 provides a single Wireless USB connection between a host computer and up to four USB 1.1/2.0 devices. The product comes with an adapter for the host computer. Transfer speed is spec'd at 480 Mbps (raw data rate) with a 30 foot range.
Belkin did not say whether this product would replace its "Cable Free USB Hub", which is not interoperable with this new product or any other Certified Wireless USB products.
The product will be available in "late August" for $199.99 suggested list.
Belkin today announced its N1 Vision wireless router that features a unique design approach.
The product features an interactive display that can be used to view a variety of router status information. Views include Download/Upload "Speedometer", network bandwidth usage and even the speed of individual connected clients.
Belkin today announced a new Network USB Hub.
The Hub simulates a direct USB connection to attached devices from networked Windows and Mac OS computers. Caching techniques allow for support of high-speed USB devices and isochronous transfers at full speed. The software also allows control of USB devices on the Hub to be switched among computers.
The F5L009 Network USB Hub will be available late June 2007 at an MSRP of $129.99. Initial shipments will support Windows clients. Support for Mac OS clients will be available in September.
