Small but Mighty—A4 Color MFP
Boasts A3 MFP Performance
and Handy Wireless Connectivity


Despite its stylishly streamlined appearance, the MX-C301W is an A4 powerhouse of functionality. Built for quality performance and four-in-one efficiency, the MX-C301W is packed with the same advanced features usually reserved for larger A3 MFPs. That’s what makes it the ideal workflow enhancer for businesses of any type and size. In fact, this versatile solution works equally well in large offices as part of a network of A3/A4 MFPs and in smaller offices as the solo document performer.


Built-In Wireless Connections

The MX-C301W offers ultra-handy wireless access via two easy modes: infrastructure mode and access point mode. These two modes enable the MFP to accommodate various user-environment factors, such as installation location and the type of LAN available.


Infrastructure mode wirelessly connects the MFP to notebook PCs and other mobile devices via a commercially available wireless LAN router. This ensures convenient access to the MFP even from places where wired LAN is not available.


Access point mode wirelessly connects a LAN-wired MFP to notebook PCs and other mobile devices without going through a wireless LAN router. The MFP can be accessed via both a wired connection and a wireless connection.

Note: External networks cannot be accessed via the MFP. Up to five mobile devices can be wirelessly connected to the MFP at the same time.
