Latronix, a provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, is expanding its xPrintServer family of products with the addition of the new xPrintServer Office Edition for Apple mobile device users.
With xPrinterServer Office Edition, Apple iOS iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch running iOS 4.2 or later users can print directly from the native print menu of the device to almost any network-connected or USB printers without having to download an app, install software, or use a computer, according to the company.
Each xPrintServer supports unlimited iOS devices, multiple network printers (up to 10 printers recommended) and up to 8USB printers (USB hub is required to connect more than one USB printer.) The new product supports more than 4,000 top brand office printers from vendors such as HP, Toshiba, Lexmark, Xerox, Minota, Brother, Epson, Canon, Ricoh, and others.
Setting up the xPrinterServer Office Edition is automatic. The xPrintServer is plugged into the network (LAN) via an Ethernet cable and auto-discovers the printers on the network for iOS devices in the office and printing can begin.
Other product features include remote authentication/active directory, administrative and security settings via a web interface, and printer user management and advanced user configuration.
Latronix is taking pre-orders on their website with product shipment beginning November 21, 2012.
