The Canon BJ Printer Hub is a device used to share the printing functionality of the Canon BJ series inkjet printers on a network environment. The process of using this device simplifies the need of having to install a printing device to every client machine connected to the network. The installation of the software driver for the Canon BJ Printer Hub device also eliminates the need for one computer machine to act as the host of the printing machine where all network clients will connect. The use of the Canon BJ Printer Hub network device will also provide the flexibility of providing network clients access to multiple printing devices that are connected to the hub. The role of the device driver is to identify the presence of the Canon BJ Printer Hub to all network clients.

The driver for the Canon BJ Printer Hub is likewise responsible for providing the underlying communication link that will allow all software programs to access the feature sets of all printing devices present on the network. In some instances, the driver for the Canon BJ Printer Hub may need to be installed in the network client machine in order for the workstation to detect its presence. The Canon BJ Printer Hub driver also communicates with the network protocol in order to make sure that the address used by the printing device will not be assigned to another network client machine. This eliminates problems of duplicate addresses which are never permitted in network environments. The configuration of the printers connected to the hub may be done individually depending on how the user of the client machine intends to use the device.
