The USB 2.0 RG2300 Core Series comes in two variants, the classic RG2300 Core which includes support for MII, GMII, RGMII and TBI connections over Cat 5e or better, fiber, or any other media, and the RG2310 Core which adds support for extending USB 2.0 over Local Area Network when working over MII, GMII or RGMII links, pre-programmed custom MAC addresses, pre-programmed vendor specific locking, which ensures only your USB extenders will pair with each other and not with extenders from other manufacturers, and Icron’s SwitchableUSB™ technology, allowing for dynamic host and device pair switching from across a network.

This Core Series supports the full range of USB 2.0 and 1.1 peripherals, as well as USB 3.0 devices at USB 2.0 speeds, and all USB controllers types, including modern xHCI USB 3.0 controllers.
