AFP to roll out secure print solution

Proximity card system will allow for the printing of jobs anywhere in the AFP office

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is to roll out a secure mobile print, copy and scanning solution at its Edmund Barton Building complex.

The solution will allow AFO staff to activate and print a job on any network connected printer or multifunction device through use of a proximity card near the print device.

The agency runs am internal network – AFPNet – through which it can manage user accounts and proximity cards for its staff.

The roll-out, to begin in late February, will see the AFP deploy up to 120 A4 secure and roaming monochrome network laser printers and 60 A3 and A4 compatible colour network multi-function devices with secure and roaming print, copy, and scan functionality.

The solution will service 2200 staff initially, but may increase to 2500 staff, with a concurrent usage rate of between 5-10 per cent, according to AFP documents.

Some of the larger applications to be used in conjunction with the new printing solution include The AFP MS-Office Suite, SharePoint and SAP.
