Robust and Flexible Business Printing Capabilities

Productivity and overall efficiency in the office are crucial to the success of any business environment. Helping users to easily manage print jobs from virtually anywhere in their home or small office is the Canon PIXMA MX922 Wireless1 Office All-In-One Printer. To help maximize user productivity and reduce overall printing costs for large-volume jobs, the PIXMA MX922 printer has a 35-page Automatic Duplex Document Feeder, and utilizes a high-capacity 250-sheet paper cassette to help limit the disruption of reloading paper. The sleek, compact design can easily fit in most home offices and handle a range of printing jobs, including CD or DVD projects due to the Direct Disc Print capabilities, which removes the need for additional and sometimes expensive software solutions for printing labels.

The Canon PIXMA iX6820 Wireless1 Inkjet Business Printer is an excellent office solution for users looking to print and produce materials that are a combination of text and graphics. Ideal for business projects requiring graphic detail in color and black-and-white, the printer features five individual ink tanks, and utilizes optional high-yield black cartridges for larger print jobs.

Helping to ensure office efficiency with its four-in-one functionality, the Color imageCLASS MF8580Cdw Laser Multifunction Printer features convenient print, copy, fax and scan capabilities in a fully wireless1 and networkable device. The printer also features an array of user-friendly features, such as a seven-line color LCD Display and Secure Print functionality to help ensure confidential documents end up in the right hands. Users also have the ability to send scanned documents and forward received faxes to a recipient through e-mail or file server.

Using the free downloadable Canon Mobile Printing app3 for select imageCLASS models and the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint application for wireless PIXMA models,6 users can conveniently print a variety of file types directly from compatible mobile devices, including Apple and Android devices.

High Quality Output and Enhanced Connectivity

With the rise of telecommuting and the mobile workplace, Canon's new Color imageCLASS LBP7110Cw printer features built-in wireless1 capabilities so documents can be printed from virtually anywhere in their home or office. To accomplish this, users will gain access to a brand new software-based wireless setup tool that takes customers through the process of finding and connecting to the appropriate network.

Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making.

Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
