How to Speed Up Network Connections?
By eliminating server intensive processes organizations can speed up their network connections. One way to do that is to reduce WAN print traffic by keeping print jobs local and process them over the LAN instead as it would do with direct IP printing. This setup does not automatically compromise control over printing at a global level. Using a solution like VPSX/Workplace or VPSX/DirectPrint company policies can still be applied and records will be stored for a full audit trail. The key behind such a serverless architecture is a solution that keeps print jobs on the LAN (direct IP printing), but also submits a ticket over the WAN where the ticket gets processed in the same way as it would process the full print job. Without the complications and rapidity being affected.
VPSX/Workplace or VPSX/DirectPrint offer direct IP printing in a fully controlled setting. While the actual print job resides locally on the user’s device, the information is submitted to the LRS software to tick the following boxes:
- User has the right permission and is allowed to print the file
- Policies applied to the print job (if so required)
- A record of the print job is stored for reporting and auditing purposes
This solution greatly reduces print related WAN traffic which is a large portion of data transfers for most organizations. It also eliminates the need for expensive print servers. Overall VPSX/Workplace or VPSX/DirectPrint can be an alternative to a WAN printing solution and offer all those benefits of a server based print management software.
