Businesses deploying wireless Lan networks now have the opportunity of setting up easy printer connections with the PocketPro USB Wireless Print Server from Troy.

The print server is designed for use at companies where network cables are either impractical or too expensive, or in cases where the printer tends to be moved frequently, either around the building or to different locations (as in the conference market, for instance).

The PocketPro solution is also suitable for companies with existing Ethernet cabling, but who intend to move onto wireless network too – it can, therefore, support both wireless and cabled connections from PCs to the printer.

In addition to the flexibility offered by PocketPro, users can also be sure that their connections to the printer are secure, as it supports both basic WEP (wireless equivalent privacy) security and “tunnelled” end-to-end connections through the highly secure TTLS (tunnelled transport layer security) protocol.

The print server is configured and managed from one location using Troy’s ExtendView system which provides a wizard for easy configuration, and is equipped with network diagnostics, printer alerts and an embedded web browser interface for easier management from any computer.

PocketPro supports any 802.11-based wireless Lan and costs around £170.
