Supporting BYOD student wifi printing with PaperCut
This is a demonstration of PaperCut's Web Print solution. It is a 100% driver-less and browser-based user printing solution and works by allowing you to upload your document to a server that then prints for you.
This tour is taken in an education context, to show you just how simple it is for a student to use. Web Print reduces the work required to support students printing from their own laptops, by eliminating domain and printer configuration (e.g. eliminate the need to join student owned systems to the Active Directory Domain).
When their laptop is connected to the wifi network, a student can access Web Print and start printing immediately. The PaperCut web user interface is accessible using any web-browser.
This demonstration covers browsing to the file and selecting it for upload to the server. PaperCut's Web Print allows for uploading many common document formats. All printing activity is of course tracked and controlled by PaperCut (e.g. print quotas).
Web Print data remains within the local network, and jobs are processed on the local server.
For more information you can visit PaperCut website for the product tour.
