PrintMIBUK - MPS Key

The MPS Key is a print device collection package which allows any user, technical or not, to collect accurate print device audits. It can be run from any Windows computer or laptop (XP, 2000, 2003, Vista) with a USB port that is connected directly to a network using TCP/IP. No software is required to be installed on the computer running the scans. The MPS Key has two main functions. First is the ability to accurately retrieve print device information (Serial, Manufacturer, Model, IP Address, Page Count, miscellaneous supply levels and Alerts). The Second function is to build an Asset Management history based on client, location and/or device. The MPS Key gives office managers, salespeople and support technicians the ability to greatly reduce the time normally required to perform these tasks into mere minutes.

The MPS Key employs a technology known as Simple Network Management Protocol or SNMP in order to query networked devices, including print devices. Specific information about the device is embedded in that device’s permanent memory by the manufacturer. Since implementing SNMP is not mandatory, some hardware manufacturers provide no or very little information. This is most common in older devices. The MPS Key uses a multiple query system in order to increase the odds of getting a complete response from every device, but some devices will simply not respond, and others will return little more than a page count.

The only information gathered by the MPS Key is that which is found on the print devices being scanned, and client information specifically entered by the user into the program interface. None of the information collected is ever reported or transmitted off the MPS Key.
