Linksys announced the availability of the Wireless-G Print Server with Multifunction Printer Support (WPSM54G) , its first print server with support for scanning, faxing and copying.
According to Gartner more than 49 million multifunction devices were sold in 2005. The WPSM54G allows these consumers and small businesses to easily access their multifunction devices to fax, scan, or copy from any PC on the network without the need for a separate dedicated “always-on” PC to manage the process. Print jobs are automatically cued and processed by the WPSM54G, eliminating the need for a manual connection to the device.
The WPSM54G is compatible with select multifunction devices from Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, Lexmark and other leading manufacturers. Traditional printers from several manufacturers are also supported. A full roster of compatible devices is available at: www.linksys.com/supportedprinters. The web page will be updated on a quarterly basis as new products are added to the list.
Available now through Linksys e-commerce retailers the WPSM54G has an estimated street price of $119.99.
