The easiest way to connect your bizhub printer to a mixed-host/LAN environment — converting AFP/IDPS and SCS/DCA data streams to the industry-standard PCL or PostScript languages and providing the ideal migration path for IBM printing in a LAN environment.
LinkCom III has been developed by MPI Tech to work efficiently within a mixed-host/LAN environment supporting both SNA and TCP/IP sessions. It’s a simple solution that converts AFP/IPDF and SCS/DCA to industry-standard PCL 5 or PostScript language used by bizhub™ and other multifunctional devices.
It also provides the ideal migration path for IBM printing in a LAN environment — and enables IBM systems and standard LAN/PC environments to make full use of the powerful print production features built into every bizhub device.
- Enables both SNA and TCP/IP sessions to the printer and supports finisher options for automated production.
- Standard redirection of one output to a network-connected printer; optional redirection of three outputs to a network via TCP/IP is also available.
- Status reporting directly to the person responsible for the printer.
- Easy plug-and-print installation for the AS/400 environment; mainframe users can also easily migrate SCS/DCA data streams to the LAN.
