Bluetooth Printer Management
Bluetooth Printer Management provides real-time visibility into the metrics on most Link-OS printers that are connected via Bluetooth to your Android handheld devices. Bluetooth Printer Management consists of the Bluetooth Connector and Connection Manager applications. These applications on the mobile computer create a gateway between the Bluetooth connected printer and either Zebra’s Printer Profile Manager Enterprise or SOTI MobiControl, providing real-time visibility and management. As a result, you can update, monitor, troubleshoot and proactively prevent printer-related issues that can result in downtime, all from a remote central location, in real time.
