IOGEAR Relieves Small Office Print and Storage Pains
Introduces 2-Port USB 2.0 Multi-Function Print / Storage Server
IRVINE, Calif., July 17 -- Small and home offices (SOHOs) can now share Multi-Function Printers (MFPs) and additional USB 2.0 storage devices, such as external hard drives, flash drives and memory card readers, with IOGEAR's 2-Port USB 2.0 Multi-Function Print / Storage Server (GMFPSU22W6).
Once plugged into the network via an Ethernet connection, the palm-sized device allows users from any networked computer to share an MFP to print, scan and fax, eliminating the need for additional printers. The product also features USB 2.0 Hub extension, enabling up to five USB devices to be accessed over an IP network. Now, employees can store and retrieve files by connecting an external hard drive to the Server, improving collaboration in the workplace.
"With the 2-Port USB 2.0 Multi-Function Print / Storage Server, we are aiming to simplify the necessary tasks of printing and storage in the SOHO environment," said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR. "With the ability to share MFPs and USB 2.0 devices, organizations can save money and space, two valuable office resources."
IOGEAR's new Print / Storage Server is able to display a printer's status and ink level through an intuitive, Web-based console, allowing users to configure, monitor and reset the printer on site, as well as remotely. It also automatically identifies a printer's make and model upon connection.
