  •   Manage your fax workflow quickly and conveniently. Fax Option Type M29 adds G3, internet, LAN FAX and IP faxing capabilities to your MFP.
  •   Remotely manage your printer fleet with @Remote. This internet-based tool lets you monitor your device usage, automate meter reads and toner alerts, and quickly alert your service provider of problems to shorten downtime and improve service.
