Customers are left satisfied with fast processing and secure wireless data transfers.
Zebra Technologies, the global supplier of printing solutions for compliance and business improvement, have just introduced the QL Plus mobile printer, an enhanced version of Zebras QL series. The new QL Plus printer delivers increased levels of wireless security and processes complex applications up to four times faster. This makes it ideal for secure transfer of encrypted data, from price lists and shipping schedules to customer information and medical records.
When it comes to sensitive data, a wireless network is only as secure as its weakest device, explained Rod Rodericks, managing director for Zebra Technologies in EMEA. Zebras QL Plus helps companies protect their networks by providing the latest advanced network security protocols, encryption, and mutual authentication, including VPN (virtual private network) and WPA (Wi-Fi protected access) as well as EAP-TLS and future protocols that may emerge. Without advanced encryption protocols, any system is vulnerable to hackers.
Rodericks continued: Were already working with companies such as Tesco, TNT and Carlsberg to improve efficiency by incorporating mobile wireless printers into the supply chain. Were looking forward to working with more European organisations to improve smarter working with mobile technology innovation.
Camaieu, the French ladies fashion retailer, has recently deployed 200 QL Plus 220 printers for use in-store. We have been working with Zebra for some time and knew the QL Plus would enable accurate labeling on the shop floor as items are put on the racks, said Xavier Debal, in-store IT manager at Camaieu.
In addition to its advanced security features, the new QL Plus series is equipped with a high-speed, 32-bit processor and a large memory capacity for printing complex formats and fonts, such as Kanji (Japanese characters) as well as other Asian character sets.
The new QL Plus also features an enhanced radio design for faster communications and USB 2.0 connectivity for quick file transfers.
Customers can choose from several advanced wireless connectivity options supported by the QL Plus, such as wireless local area networks (LANs), 802.11b, and Bluetooth technology with Zebras flexible QuickLink radio modules. As needs change, or new wireless standards emerge, QuickLink upgrade modules are issued ensuring the customers investment is protected.
