HP introduces HP JetDirect 690n Wireless Print Server

HP recently introduced the HP JetDirect 690n Wireless Print Server, an enterprise network solution that allows extended printing capabilities over a larger number of users. Providing 802.11g printer connectivity to telecommuters and remote offices, the HP JetDirect 690n Wireless Print Server is bound to meet numerous printing needs, thus, increases workgroup productivity.

Easy to install and configure
Installing the HP JetDirect 690n Wireless Printer Server is easy and convenient. With a modular internal card that slides into the EIO slot of any compatible HP peripheral, there is no need to deal with bothersome cords and other accessories. Some HP printer series, such as the HP LaserJet P4014n, P4015n and P4515n, even come already equipped with it. Meanwhile, setup is made even faster by a revamped installation wizard which ensures that the print server will be up and running in no time.

Enterprise-class security
The HP JetDirect 690n Wireless Print Server provides robust security functions. To protect business-critical data, it is equipped with IPSec wireless security that provides advanced authentication and encryption. Other security features include Kerberos, 802.1x authentication, SSL/TLS, Access Control List, password protection, SNMPv3, and IPP over TLS.

Full manageability
To further ensure convenience, the HP JetDirect 690n Wireless Print Server works seamlessly with these HP management tools:

– With HP Web JetAdmin, one can install, configure, monitor and troubleshoot a variety of printing and imaging devices—and supplies—from anywhere on the network.

– Use the HP Embedded Web Server to easily configure, manage and monitor your network printing from any standard Web browser.

– HP Universal Print Driver solutions provide easy, familiar and consistent set up and printing across a network of HP printers.

– HP Easy Printer Care Software is the simplest way to monitor and maintain about 15 HP devices.

Broadly compatible
To improve efficiency, the HP JetDirect 690n, with its wireless 802.11g and 802.11b capabilities, is compatible with qualified HP peripherals with EIO slots—including HP Color LaserJet MFPs with scanning capabilities. It also fits into a business’ existing IT capabilities, supporting a wide range of operating systems such as Microsoft®, Novell, Apple, UNIX® and Linux. Meanwhile, network protocols supported includes TCP/IP (IPv6/ IPv4, IP Direct Mode, LPD, FTP and IPP), IPX/SPX, DLC/LLC and AppleTalk. Future enhancements can also be added with flash-upgradeable firmware.
