Toshiba cuts cord on wireless server

Toshiba Corp. introduced a new wireless server for small and medium-sized businesses this week, saying it offers full network capabilities with a reduced need for IT support.

The Magnia SG30 Wireless Mobility Server, introduced Wednesday, offers 802.11b wireless networking, allowing users to share files, access the Internet and configure a firewall and a virtual private network (VPN). It also offers content filtering, backup capabilities, e-mail services and remote administration, according to Toshiba.

But the product's main selling point is it wireless features. The server comes with three PC Card slots that can house wireless LAN PC Cards, a built-in wireless access point and support for the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) 802.11b wireless standard, Toshiba said.

The server offers up to 160G bytes of storage capacity and 256M bytes of memory, and comes with a 1.2GHz Celeron processor from Intel Corp. Aimed at smaller companies and remote offices, the Magnia SG30 is roughly the size of a Toshiba laptop and priced starting at US$1499, the company said. No information on an Australian release was available at press time.

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.

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