I've never used a USB port on a server for device activation. For BES 4.0 activation can be done wireless (Over the air - OTA). For versions < 4.0, device activation is done by adding the e-mail accounts to the BES via a console and then cradling at the client (PC) end. No USB required.
Not to mention that many older BlackBerrys, still in use today, do not use USB...
