3353-PP D/S 3 5/26/98 1:26 PM Page 1 Axis Print Servers A Complete Family of High-Performance Printing Solutions for Workgroups, LANs and Enterprise Networks ( P rint Ser vers High-Performance Printing Solutions for Every Network Environment. Axis print servers offer a range of high-performance solutions for printing in workgroups, small and large LANs, and corporate enterprise networks. They’re designed to improve printing performance, increase your flexibility in where and how you connect printers, and extend the useful life of your printer investment. Based on state-of-the-art technology, Axis print servers provide the features you need — such as high performance and advanced TCP/IP support — for today’s demanding printing environment. They allow you to print independently of file servers, giving you the freedom to place printers anywhere on your network. And their simultaneous multiprotocol capability makes any printer at home in a heterogeneous network. With Axis print servers, you have the speed, ease of use and upgradeability needed to keep up with the faster, higher quality, and ever-improving printers of today and tomorrow. Featuring ThinServer™ Technology All Axis print servers incorporate ThinServer Technology from Axis Communications. This technology is comprised of “thin” versions of the most popular network operating systems, Web management tools and Axis’ own ETRAX 32-bit RISC processor — based on open architecture, and streamlined and optimized for device connectivity independent of any file servers. ThinServer Technology makes print servers and other peripherals completely plug-’n-play. Connect printers directly to the network, allowing users of different operating systems to share printer resources. 3353-PP D/S 3 5/26/98 1:27 PM Page 2 Highlights of the Axis Print Server Family Support for All Popular Networking Environments The Axis print servers family supports the major network platforms, including NetWare (NDS and NDPS), Windows, UNIX, Apple EtherTalk, OS/2, LANtastic, LAN Manager/ Server and IBM SNA. Easy to Install and Use Axis’ NetPilot™ management software quickly guides you through installation, configuration and software upgrades, while enabling batch configuration of print servers and group monitoring of your attached printers. The monitoring function automatically alerts the network administrator if printing errors occur. Support for automatic IP address setting. Manage Printing Over Intranets or the Web Use a standard Web browser to manage and configure print server settings, monitor status, track the latest print jobs and hyperlink to online support documentation. Axis’ embedded ThinServer Technology gives each print server its own Web site, so no additional software is needed. Serial Parallel Parallel Axis Print Server OS/2, LAN Mgr/LAN Svr NetWare Macintosh UNIX Windows IBM Mainframe and AS/400 Fast Printing High throughput is made possible by Axis’ ETRAX 32-bit RISC processor, specifically designed for LAN products. It generates up to 10 times faster throughput than connecting your printer to a PC or file server, and higher performance than competitive print servers. Easy to Upgrade Flash memory allows network administrators to centrally perform product software updates over the network. Cost Effective High flexibility and performance, combined with ease of use, lower the cost of owning your network by saving administration time and extending the life of your products. “Virtual” Printers Add Flexibility Axis’ Logical Printer Concept lets you create “virtual” printers by configuring each printer in up to eight different ways. Each virtual printer has its own customized features and settings. Users just select the virtual printer they want and start printing — customization has never been easier. HP JetAdmin Compatible Support for installation and management via HP JetAdmin and Web JetAdmin tools. 5-Year Warranty All Axis print servers are covered for 5 years with return of warranty card. 3353-PP D/S 3 5/26/98 1:31 PM Page 3 Single-Port Choose the Print Server That's Right For You.
