MarkNet N8230 Fiber Print Server

Features

The fibre optic edge

Support the ultimate in communication bandwidth and security: fibre optic networking. The Lexmark MarkNet™ N8230 Fibre Ethernet Print Server supports network communications at the highest level of speed and security by interfacing one of two LC-standard fibre ports with your supported Lexmark device’s internal Ethernet connection at full-duplex megabit (100Base-FX) or gigabit (1000Base-SX) fibre speeds.

Security and data accuracy

Fibre optics have greater electromagnetic immunity, eliminating the chance of radio frequency interference in electrically “noisy” environments such as a factory or warehouse. And since fibre optic systems do not radiate electromagnetic signals like copper transmission lines, even sophisticated electronic methods of intercepting information won’t work.

Easy, integrated card installation

Install the card in your supported Lexmark device without external boxes or adapters. You get fibre connectivity in a single, easily installable internal card, shipped in configurations that support many Lexmark devices (see specifications), including appropriate adapters and documentation.

Network communications security

The print server supports SNMPv3, IPSec and 802.1x authentication data encryption for communication security in all supported printers and MFPs. Advanced functions such as VLAN filtering packet processing provide added speed.

Network Protocol Support

Simultaneous active protocol support allows you to print from different systems without reconfiguring. Like standard Lexmark Ethernet connections, that includes TCP/IP IPv4, TCP/IP IPv6, Novell (IPX/SPX including NetWare Directory Services) and LexLink (DLC/LLC). It even supports on-board verification of IP headers and TCP/UDP checksums for received data.

Embedded Web Page

The embedded web page allows administrators to flash update printer firmware or access printer settings using a web browser to easily monitor printer status and change default settings.
