The Mopria Alliance, a global, non-profit mobile printing organization, continues to expand its membership, with a number of Brother and Epson devices recently receiving certification. Founded in September of last year, the Alliance is made up of leading document imaging technology companies with the stated goal of providing simple wireless printing from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. Brother and Epson are joining the ranks of dozens of other companies, including Canon, HP, Samsung, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Lexmark, Ricoh and others.
This past July, Brother, which is now an executive member of the Mopria Alliance, launched its first Mopria-certified printers and all-in-ones: the HL-L8250CDN, HL-L8350CDW, HL-L8350CDWT, HL-L9200CDW, MFC-L8600CDW, MFC-L8850CDW and MFC-L9550CDW. These color-laser models support mobile printing solutions including Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Brother iPrint&Scan and Cortado Workplace.
