Since many older computers do not have USB connectors onboard and most newer computers come with only one or two USB ports, USB hubs are used to connect additional USB peripherals. Universal Serial Bus (USB) technology doesn’t require any IRQs, so you can attach more peripheral devices to the system, eliminating IRQ conflicts.

The USB 2.0 Hub complies with the USB 2.0 standard and provides data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps. It’s faster, more efficient, and more capable than its predecessor, USB 1.1. Also, it’s backward-compatible, so you don’t lose your prior investment in USB 1.1 peripherals.
