Many Wall GmbH locations in Germany are supplied with their required IT infrastructure via low bandwidth connections to a data center. Printing too is expected to run quickly and smoothly via the central Citrix environment. The company was looking for a solution offering easy print management in order to reduce the administrative burden involved with printing.
All printouts from the Citrix environment in the data center are controlled via a central print server using ThinPrint. Print data on the critical line from the central print server to each site is compressed via ThinPrint. The amount of bandwidth used by printing is regulated depending on the connection of the branch office.
The running costs for the increased bandwidth requirements have already been reduced through the use of ThinPrint for several years. Citrix printing is quick and reliable, without any adverse performance issues for Citrix.
“Thanks to ThinPrint for Citrix we can print from a central print server to all sites quickly and reliably and save costs at the same time.”
