New Compaq networking line for SMEs

Compaq has launched a new range of Fast Ethernet Hubs aimed at the SME (small and medium enterprise) market.

The hubs give businesses faster network access "right out of the box" Compaq says. Used with Compaq desktops, the company claims the hubs will provide for faster access to business critical applications.

The product line allows for multi-user application access, shared resource pooling of hardware such as printers, and high-speed file sharing. Scalability is promoted within the range of hubs, offering a "solid growth path" for "meeting the office connectivity challenges of an evolving business".

The hubs are stackable to six high and can grow to meet the needs of up to 96 desktop and server connections. In addition, 192 users can be accommodated with two stacks of Class II repeaters connected together.

Pricing starts at $520 for an eight-port Fast Ethernet Hub, and up to $1399 for a 16-port Dual Speed Hub.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
