Lantronix's New XPrintServer Enables Virtual Printing From Enterprise iOS Devices

These days, you don't need a giant piece of kit for a lot of computations to occur. Just look at this phone-sized box. It's Lantronix's new xPrintServer, which now supports enterprise-wide mobile printing for workplaces that frequently find themselves packed with iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices. It's the Office Edition, and it's engineered to let busy professionals print from their iOS products to virtually any printer. Put simply, it enables printing directly from the native print menu of the device to network-connected printers without any apps to download, software to install, or need to buy a new printer. Here's a bit more direct from the company:
The soon-to-be released Office Edition comes with a wide range of robust features to support mobile printing throughout the enterprise. Designed in partnership with enterprise customers, the new Office Edition addresses the challenges faced by IT departments on how to identify, deploy and manage iOS device printing throughout the extended organization. Key features include:
• Support for both USB and network-connected printers (wired or wireless)
• Enhanced printer-user management, including printer usage rights, security and control over printers and user groups
• Proxy Server Support, global save and restore functionality, and the ability to now export print logs
• Remote authentication / Active Directory support
• Firmware / driver loading via USB port
• Supports over 4,000 top brand printers, and an unlimited number of iPads, iPhones, and iOS users and devices
• Roughly the size of an iPhone with no additional software, CDs or application downloads required
• Automatic printer discovery and provisioning
• Easy to use and no configuration. Simply open the box, plug it in, print
• Anything that can be viewed, opened or read on an iOS device can be printed with the xPrintServer

The device is slated to ship soon, with pre-orders available now at $199.95.
