Use WeP Traffic-less printing for branch offices to take advantage of WeP without a local server.
For organizations with branch offices, Sentinel may be centralized and used in a traffic-less configuration. This method conserves Wide Area Network (WAN) bandwidth, which would otherwise be untenably high due to large-size print job traffic clogging it up. Traffic-less technology saves cost and maintenance overheads by allowing any number of branch offices to connect to a centralised WeP server without requiring an individual WeP server at each site, whilst ensuring that organisations and their branch users are still able to take full advantage of all WeP features, including pull printing, centralised print management, print reporting and more. How traffic-less printing works:
This technique ensures that print jobs, which can sometimes be hundreds of MB in size, do not leave the branch office Local Area Network (LAN), but rather just the metadata for each job. The metadata constitutes only a tiny amount of data compared to a full print job; this ensures that bandwidth across the WAN is preserved for other essential purposes. Advantages of traffic-less printing:
The only requirement for traffic-less printing is that the WeP client application must be installed on each remote branch client PC, and in most cases, a VPN connection will be required for full functionality. In certain cases, a VPN may not be required, though this may result in limited functionality.
