Broadband and other mailing machine connection methods

UPDATED: 17 July 2016

Adding postage to your mailing machine and updating postal rates and software requires a connection between your postage meter and the Pitney Bowes Data Center. Using your high-speed, broadband Internet connection is the Pitney Bowes recommended connection method.

  • Significantly faster
  • More reliable; greatly reduces connection issues
  • Save money; no need for a dedicated analog line
  • Save time; no need to switch back and forth between a shared fax line
  • Newer technology; telecom providers are moving away towards digital systems

Connection Options:

1. LAN Connection (Constant Connection) - Best Choice
This option uses a LAN (local area network) adapter and USB cable to connect your meter to your existing high-speed Broadband network. Direct connection via LAN is available for the following meter models:
