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.
