Axis servers use 100-MIPS chip, browser control
The multiprotocol Axis 5400 and Axis 5500 print servers from Axis Communications Inc.
incorporate the companys new Etrax 100 thin-server chip. Both print servers are
fully integrated with Axis ThinWizard, a Java management tool for administering Axis
ThinServer products via Web browsers.
In combination with ThinWizard device management software, the Etrax system-on-a-chip
automatically discovers and maps all Axis print servers on a network.
The Etrax 100 is a 100-million-instructions-per-second RISC processor with an
autosensing 10/100-Mbps network controller and intelligent input/output capability.
The print servers are compatible with all parallel-port printers and work on 10Base-T
and 100Base-T networks, officials of the Woburn, Mass., company said.
