Insignia announces additional functionality for O'Neil printers
Label printing company Insignia has announced a series of new technical solutions for health sector organisations using O’Neil printers.
The company has announced 802.11-equipped mobile O’Neil portable printers will be supported within Motorola’s mobility service platform for remote management.
The platform can be coupled with remote management software, allowing the printers to be configured, updated and monitored remotely.
Insignia said the mobility service platform is fast becoming the standard in several Australian industries, including the healthcare sector.
It said the portable printers will be equipped to operate within Motorola’s Mobility Service Platform environment, which aims to maximise uptime and utilisation among mobile workers, also allowing the printers to be remotely provisioned, monitored and managed.
“This provides a seamless and secure management architecture that is ideal in large networked environments containing a broad set of mobile devices, including portable printers and handheld computers,” a spokesperson for Insignia said.
The O’Neil Remote Management Software tool (RMS) will enable the printers to be configured, updated and monitored remotely across an entire organisation.
The software works by allowing printers to be grouped in a virtual topology, allowing tasks such as updates or printer status monitoring to be completed for either a single printer or a group of printers.
“Through RMS, all printers within a network, or selected printers, can receive firmware updates and/or configuration modifications necessary for changing application requirements,” Insignia said.
“In addition, a network administrator can connect, query, configure, and display the status of any printer on the network.”
Insignia also announced Wavelink Avalanche Mobility software will be pre-loaded on to O’Neil wireless mobile printers.
The move allows wireless printers to also be remotely monitored and configured.
“Customers using Avalanche MC will benefit from a wide variety of management functionalities that include centralised remote management, performance monitoring, software distribution and crucial device security,” Insignia said.
