MultiNex’s spokesperson Morten Pilekaer stated, “Deployment of computers with Windows 2000 has allowed enterprise customers to take advantage of the major benefits of USB. Icron’s ExtremeUSBTM technology will enable these enterprise customers to position their USB devices in locations that are convenient for their business applications”.
Entering into agreements with computer distributors, like MultiNex, further illustrates the wide range of market demand for Icron’s ExtremeUSB technology.
