BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a global leader in business technology, today introduced a new line of monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones for the Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) market, adding to the line that included their award-winning, best-selling HL-2270DW printer. While these new models boast notable upgrades, Brother has maintained the suggested retail price points that helped make them popular with SOHO users.

"Models from our award-winning monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones have been celebrated by our customers time and again for their quality output, reliability, and attractive price points," said Eric Dahl, Brother Director of Marketing for SOHO products.

The compact, desk-friendly footprint allows for use in the home office, school workspace or small office.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
