Wireless 4694 and SurePOS 4800 terminals
In-store communication has usually been done over cablesthat connect POS terminals to their controllers. Cables offer a dependable medium for transferring data, but one that is often expensive to install and limited in flexibility when adding or relocating workstations. A wireless LAN communicates using radio waves between a base wireless workstation and remote wireless workstations within a geographical area referred to as a cell. For users of IBM StoreSystems, this offers a flexible solution for communication between POS terminals and their controllers by providing an effective alternative to the standard cabling used today. The same store controller can be used to communicate using both cable and wireless connectivity. This will allow flexibility of adding or moving wireless attached workstations within an area while the fixed wiredworkstations remain untouched. There are several steps involved in setting up a 4690 system to run wireless 4694 and SurePOS 4800 terminals. The third, fourth, fifth, and sixth items contain specific setup information for the different equipment suppliers. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
