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.

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.

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.

100 Mbps network speeds,
this server optimizes network
printing today and provides
a seamless upgrade path to
Fast Ethernet printing for
tomorrow.
The Axis print server
family includes servers
for every network
and printer environment. Depending on
your needs, you can choose
between multi-port and
single-port models, and
between Ethernet and
Token Ring. Some models
also support SNA. Axis
even offers print servers
specifically optimized for
HP and Canon printers.
Ports: 2 parallel, 1 serial
Single port model also available
Ethernet model only.
Just choose the Axis
print server that fits your
requirements, plug it into
your network, and you’re
ready to go.
