Original Press Release:
Infoprint Solutions for Supply Chain Management: Wireless
Avoid long lines and high costs with wireless technology.
IBM's wireless technology for IBM printers gives you the flexibility you need to implement point of need printing. Reengineer warehouse workflow or support mobile workers without the expense and delays associated with buying and routing cable. When you identify added efficiencies by changing business workflow or facility layout, have the ability to instantly relocate printers. When you expand into a new facility, become productive immediately without installing an expensive wired network.
Warehouse, distribution or manufacturing facilities
Place printers next to the outgoing boxes and print labels on demand.
Save the time it takes to transport labels from a centralized location to the point of need.
The IBM 6400 impact printer and the IBM 4400 thermal printer both offer a Dual network interface card (NIC) that allows the printers to function in either a wired or wireless mode.
The NIC is compliant with IEEE 802.11b Wi-Fi and requires a PCMCIA radio card for wireless operation.
Wireless printing is enabled through devices called access points that form the bridge between the wired and the wireless world.
Printer Management Utility (PMU) software for IBM industrial printers supports full visibility of both wired and wireless printers - notifying administrators to supply conditions or printer alerts and providing for remote configuration of printer parameters
General office environments
Support multiple users in workgroups of all sizes
