vPad CE – Print Stream Compression
vPad CE facilitates print stream compression solving bandwidth issues and promoting consistently fast remote printing across multiple geographical locations, when deployed with the UniPrint Infinity™ software. The print appliance can also replace a remote site Windows print server allowing it to be consolidated into the data center.

Why Print Stream Compression?
Spooled print data can be many times the size of the original document. The bloated print data can wreak havoc on bandwidth availability for critical traffic such as ICA, RDP, and PCoIP. The normal solution is to restrict the bandwidth available for print data. However, this leads to slow printing for the users.
UniPrint Infinity and vPad CE solves both slow printing and bandwidth issues. UniPrint Infinity compresses the data transmitted from the printer server in the data center, and vPad CE decompresses it at the remote location. This reduces the amount of bandwidth consumed, enabling speedy, trouble-free printing. The vPad CE replaces the Windows print server at the remote location which will help to reduce IT overhead. As a result, organizations can expect a full return on their investment within the first year.
