The NBN and your print devices - don't get caught out

There's no doubt the NBN network has some great benefits for business productivity.

But if you're planning to switch to it in the future, you need to be mindful of a few implications it can have on your print hardware if yours is managed by an external provider. (Unfortunately, NBNCo don't outline these implications anywhere on their website as at the date of writing this article. )

Just like your computers, your managed print devices also have an IP address. 
When the NBN gets installed, your computers can detect the change on their own and automatically get reassigned with a new IP address. 
Your managed print devices are not set up to reassign a new address in the same way. It needs to be done manually along with the Gateway, DNS & SMTP settings.

Does mobile printing make sense for your business?

Last year we wrote a post outlining what mobile printing can do for your business. Only a few months down 

the track we can see that the topic has raised a few eyebrows - mostly due to a lack of understanding as to what it is, how secure it is and whether it will be a help or a hindrance to productivity.

For some businesses, mobile printing may not be a wise technology to engage with. But for others, it may be just what they need to work more efficiently.

What can mobile printing do for your business?

There’s some confusion, though, as to how necessary the cloud is to the future of business operations.

In its recent Workflow Optimization Study, Canon asked business professionals whether investing in certain technologies is “very or extremely important to running their businesses more effectively.”

The results indicate what Dennis Amorosano, Vice President and General Manager of Canon’s Business Imaging Solutions Group Marketing Division, called a “knowledge gap” between IT professionals and non-IT professionals.
